2 Top Stocks for Retirees

Posted by D4L | Saturday, June 25, 2016 | | 0 comments »

You've spent your over four decades in the working world, toiling to make sure you and your family were taken care of. Once you enter retirement, it's time to pursue your passions, spend time with family and friends, and take a nap whenever you want to. The very last thing you want to do is worry about money. But with the typical American retiring at 62 and living until 82 (male) to 85 (female) years old, your nest egg needs to be able to provide for at least 20 years. That's why selecting the very best stocks for your retirement portfolio is so important.

Below are two stocks that share three important characteristics for retirees: They have sizable and healthy dividends, they trade for a fair price, and -- most importantly -- they have significant competitive advantages that should make them just as relevant two decades from now: There are only four major telecoms left in America, and none has a larger market share than Verizon (NYSE:VZ). While Verizon is a huge telecom, AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV) is one of the nation's largest pharmaceutical companies.

I really hope you didn’t follow the flawed “sell in May and go away” strategy I warned you about last month. Because if you dumped all your stocks on, say, May 1, you’ve already missed out on a 1.5% rise in the S&P 500. The problem? With S&P 500 trading at an overstretched 24 times trailing-twelve-month earnings, deals like these are getting tougher to come by, at least here in the U.S. But luckily for us, there are still plenty of attractively priced dividend growers beyond our borders. What’s more, international companies boast dividend yields that crush those of their American cousins.

According to Nuveen Investments, the MSCI EAFE Index, which includes large- and mid-cap stocks from 21 developed nations outside North America, has delivered yields 50% higher, on average, than the S&P 500 over the past decade. Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD), a 3.9% payer with a lovely habit of dropping two dividend hikes a year on investors, which it did from 2011 to 2015. Across the pond, U.K.-based Diageo plc (ADR) (DEO), which trades in the U.S. as an American depositary receipt (ADR), boasts a 3.1% yield and has been serving up dividends since its creation in 1997. Templeton Global Income Fund (GIM) is a closed-end fund that trades at a 9.9% discount to net asset value (NAV).

General Motors (GM) is still the leader in trucks and is powered by a robust lineup of models. Even if its plans for automated cars face some delays, the company boasts strong fundamentals. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) Marina Bay Sands in Singapore is its most profitable property, and Las Vegas Sands is planning to expand it through the construction of a new tower of 1,000-1,200 rooms and an entertainment arena.

Dividend stocks can be the foundation of a great retirement portfolio. Not only do the payments put money in your pocket, which can help hedge against any dips in the stock market, they're usually a sign of a financially sound company. Dividends also give investors a painless opportunity to reinvest in a stock, thus compounding gains over time.

However, not all income stocks live up to their full potential. Using the payout ratio -- i.e., the percentage of profits a company returns to its shareholders as dividends -- we can get a good bead on whether a company has room to increase its dividend. Ideally, we like to see healthy payout ratios between 50% and 75%. Here are three income stocks with payout ratios currently below 50% that could potentially double their dividends: Comerica (NYSE:CMA), Ingredion (NYSE:INGR) and Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA).
