What are your core retirement investments?
The stocks that:
- pay you a regular dividend
- are large and stable enough that you don't usually pay much attention to them
- you gratefully load up on when the market does its swan dive every year or three


I believe an argument could be made for Vanguard's Consumer Staples ETF [VDC]. Lower beta than S&P 500 & better return & pays a decent 2.4% dividend at this time.
