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. For these three energy stocks, CLICK HERE.
A real estate investment trust that is required to pay out the bulk of its profits as dividends (and whose management anticipates 4% annual dividend growth over the next 3 years), a well-run Canadian pipeline giant that is likely to increase its payout significantly in the coming quarters, and a renewable energy focused yieldco whose management expects 12% to 15% dividend growth through 2022 are the three stocks highlighted in today’s article that could be prime picks for a retirement portfolio.

The energy sector has had a rough year – and the five energy-focused closed-end funds highlighted in today’s article have gotten beaten up right along with it. For the contrarian investor, then, the author of today’s article advises that “if you think 2018 is going to be oil’s year and you want a big income stream while you wait for the market to realize the commodity’s potential, these are the funds for you.” For these five funds – each of which offers a yield above 10% – CLICK HERE.
Risk and retirement don’t go together. As such, given the difficult times (to put it mildly) that the energy sector has experienced over the last couple of years, energy stocks might not seem like goods bets for a retirement portfolio. However, the author of today’s article argues that “those planning (or even in) retirement might be doing themselves a disservice by avoiding energy stocks right now”, and highlights seven energy stocks that he states “you can count on to get you through your golden years.” To see what these seven energy stocks are, and for an analysis of each, CLICK HERE.
While today’s article takes the position that stocks should still be a major part of the investment strategies of retirees, it acknowledges that “certain stocks work better in retirees’ portfolios than others.” As such, the three contributors each highlight one of their favorite stocks for retirement. To read more about these stocks – which include a real estate investment trust that invests in retail properties with high-quality tenants with businesses that are resistant to economic downturns and an energy stock “with tremendous financial predictability, even when there are huge swings in energy prices” – CLICK HERE.
