Rhoski: "Being new to the discussion section thank you in advance for you "foolish" advice. My question:
What is a reasonable assumption for how much income(as a percent) a retirement portfolio could generate assuming a moderate level of risk? Would it be:
4) other (you specify)"
Peter Lynch (of Fidelity Magellan fame) once suggested 7% and had to eat his words, bigtime.
4%, inflation adjusted for 30 years, having long ago read the links that were provided to you and others as well, and assuming a reasonable mix of equiteis in the ivestments. Less if your timeline is longer or if you omit or skimp on equities.
