Retirement investing is not what it used to be. In the old days, one could just invest in the safe stocks to buy, in blue chips, in a nice ladder of bonds, and do just fine.
Alas, the market has significantly changed. Much of this is due to the historically low interest rates weve had.
The problem with the Federal Reserves attempt to goose the economy is that it killed bond yields, forcing retired investors further out onto the risk curve, making it difficult to find safe stocks to buy. That has pushed stock prices far higher than they should be, if one subscribes (as I do) to the Peter Lynch theory that a stocks price should reflect its net income growth rate to be added to a list of stocks to buy.
