7 great dividend-paying stocks to buy for a comfortable retirement
There are people who will say on establishment day and forget it, the retirement accounts are over. But it’s a story we’ve heard before. The truth is, the formula for saving for a comfortable retirement, like the formula for losing weight, hasn’t really changed. Much depends on whether an individual has the discipline to carry it out.
Dividend stocks remain an essential part of a retirement portfolio. As people approach retirement, the ability to reinvest dividends allows for a higher total return. And once people need to live off their portfolios, dividends provide a source of income without having to dip into their capital.
However, not all dividend paying stocks are the same and many investors are drawn to the attractiveness of a high yielding dividend stock. But what you’re really looking for are companies that have a habit of increasing their dividends. The ability to increase a dividend over time illustrates that the company has a business model that can hold up regardless of the performance of the economy as a whole.
In this special presentation, we’ll highlight seven stocks that individuals can buy today to earn a stable, recurring dividend.
