Earlier this summer, a Barron’s cover story advanced the claim that this is “the worst time to retire since just before the dot-com bubble burst”, pointing to the nearly decade-long stock bull market (and even older bond bull market) – and the “rising market volatility, rising inflation, rising interest rates and an uncertain economic outlook” expected to result – as the reasons why. The author of today’s article, however, has a different take – and argues that soon-to-be retirees who succumb to this thinking are hurting their retirement portfolios. For more, CLICK HERE.
When it comes to 401(k)s and IRAs, the author of today’s article argues that “Gambling away your retirement funds in a government-sponsored game of chance is a game you have little hope of winning.” Instead, he asserts that if you want to retire for real (and early), the key is attaining financial freedom – which requires focusing on cash flow rather than capital gains.

For retirees looking for income streams, today’s article highlights a trio of energy stocks to consider. Not only does each of these stocks pay an above-average yield but, more importantly, the author notes that the dividends are low risk as the businesses in question all generate predictable cash flows, have strong balance sheets, can cover their current dividends with room to spare and have clear growth prospects – and, thus, the ability to increase payouts going forward.

How can real estate, Latin America and beer help fund your retirement? Through dividends! Today’s article highlights three dividend-paying stocks – a real-estate investment trust that has increased its dividend for more than 27 consecutive years, a beer maker that analysts expect will continue to grow earnings by at least 15% annually for the next five years, and a Latin American e-commerce specialist that – while offering a paltry yield right now – is positioned for substantial growth (and has the free cash flow to increase its payout seven-fold right now).
