2022 is the 11th most volatile year in US history, with stocks crashing and rocketing upwards.
Whether stocks have already bottomed or have as much as 30% more to fall is an open question hotly debated by economists and SA readers alike.
Sleep well at night high-yield blue-chip bargains like these two offer a safe choice for long-term investors seeking Buffett-like returns in the medium- and long-term.
Both are up 16% in 2022, beating the S&P by over 30%.
One offers a very safe 8.2% yield, and analysts expect 25% annual returns through 2024, literally Buffett-like return potential from a defensive blue-chip bargain hiding in plain sight.
The other is an A+-rated world-beater that yields a very safe 3.2% and could also deliver 25% annual returns over the next few years and 16X inflation-adjusted returns over the next three decades. That makes it not just a safe port in the storm in this bear market but a potentially great way to retire in safety and splendor.
