What are the most reliable stocks for retirees? Today’s article seeks to answer this question by looking at two articles from Kiplinger, one featuring a “group of retirement stocks that includes both pure income plays and growth companies, with a focus on very-long-term performance and durability”, and a second highlighting 20 dividend stocks that “should fund at least 20 years of retirement, if not more. They have paid uninterrupted dividends for more than 20 consecutive years, appear to have secure payouts and have the potential to collectively grow… dividends to protect investors’ purchasing power.” For more, CLICK HERE.
With numerous studies indicating that “steady buying of quality companies at reasonable to attractive valuations is far better than market timing”, the author of today’s article buys $750 of a dividend stock every week for their retirement portfolio.

“In a world where interest rates are so low and uncertainty seems to be the norm, baby boomers need to look for stable dividend stocks that can compete with the current income of longer-term Treasury notes and bonds and for businesses that should grow to offer some capital appreciation over time as well,” notes the author of today’s article, who proceeds to highlight 20 dividend stocks – most of which are dividend growers – that offer retired and near-retirement boomers reliable and rising income.

When it comes to funding his retirement, the author of today’s article intends to do it with the dividend income his equity portfolio generates, noting that “Dividend payments are more stable than share prices and the potential for capital gains, which makes them an ideal source of income for retirement. Historically, US dividend growth has exceeded the rate of inflation. This means that dividend income not only maintains purchasing power, but increases it over time.” As for how to go about creating a portfolio of dividend stocks to live off of in retirement, he lays out his process, which begins with having “the end goal in mind”.

While retirees living on investment income may desire to be able to simply sit in bonds, today’s article notes that “Even in 2019 and even after the Fed’s normalization of interest rates, retirees and those who are nearing retirement simply have no choice but to have at least some investments in stocks” – specifically, stable dividend-paying stocks with the ability to continue growing their dividends for years to come.

“Although dividend stocks are a mainstay of a retirement portfolio, they are not the only stocks you should have,” advises the author of today’s article, who proceeds to highlight three stocks offering income and growth to consider for retirement. For these three stocks, as well as the author’s advice regarding the right amount of portfolio diversification in retirement and his answer to the question “Is any risk allowed in a well-designed retirement portfolio?”, CLICK HERE.
Noting that the two most important factors for those on the verge of retirement are income and stability, the author of today’s article states that “a soon-to-be-retiring person can maintain a perfect stock portfolio with the help of strong organizations that pay substantial dividends” – and he proceeds to highlight nine companies that fit this profile. For these nine dividend stocks that appear to be well-suited for soon-to-be retirees, CLICK HERE.
The author of today’s article calls them “the single best way to maximize the chances of a rich retirement” – whether one is still decades away from retirement or is quickly approaching (or already in) retirement. The “them” in question? Dividend growth stocks – and with Congress forever kicking the can down the road on fixing Social Security, they may be more pivotal to one’s retirement planning than ever.

When it comes to what retirees typically want in their stocks, today’s article sums it up as “dividend stocks that have high yields, consistent payments, and good outlooks for the future.” The author proceeds to highlight three stocks that seem to fit this bill perfectly: a major oil company (which is positioned to continue to do right by its investors even if the oil market slumps), one of the biggest chemical companies in the U.S. (that you’ve probably never heard of), and a master limited partnership (with a decade-long track record of consistent payout increases).

Retirees generally want two things from their stocks, note the authors of today’s article: security and income. They further note that “Ideal picks are established companies with wide moats and a long history of dividend hikes.” They proceed to highlight three such stocks that may be particularly solid picks for retirees – including one “rock-solid dividend stock” that may currently offer investors an attractive entry point thanks to a pullback.
