Nilus Mattive bought his first stock in the sixth grade and has remained fascinated by the financial markets ever since. After graduating with a triple major in philosophy, theology, and English, he began his professional career at Jonathan Steinberg's Individual Investor Group. Mr. Mattive later edited Standard & Poor's flagship investment newsletter for five years and wrote The Standard & Poor's Guide for the New Investor, published by McGraw Hill. He has since built up an enviable 15-year track record of winning income at the helm of various newsletters and trading services, including Weiss Ratings' Income Superstars and Superstar Trader. He now serves as editor of Weiss Ratings' Safe Money Report.
A lot of people thought I was crazy for adding a cryptocurrency allocation to a safety-oriented portfolio. But as I explained at the time, adding more types of assets – including a highly volatile cryptocurrency like Bitcoin – actually makes a portfolio safer overall. And it didn’t take long for the market to prove me right. Now, I recommend the Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE), explains Nilus Mattive, editor of Safe Money Report.
Diversification is one of the big themes I’ve been exploring in the Safe Money Report – not just diversification in terms of sectors and industries but across different asset classes. I recommend an allocation to the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) for 2024, writes Nilus Mattive, editor of Safe Money Report.
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are the most straightforward and proven way to get access to quality properties of just about any type. They invest in different kinds of real estate or real estate-related assets — including shopping centers, office buildings, hotels, self-storage facilities, and long-term care communities. Right now, I like the specialty property REIT VICI Properties (VICI), writes Nilus Mattive, editor of Safe Money Report.
Everyone has been celebrating the recent inflation numbers. Indeed, all we hear is good news that the Fed is winning the war against rising prices. But are you feeling that supposed victory in your daily life? I suspect the answer is no. That’s why you should continue to focus on inflation-fighting investments like EOG Resources (EOG), suggests Nilus Mattive, editor of Safe Money Report.
