Investors in retirement typically gravitate toward solid companies producing consistent returns over the years. You don't want to be selling your stocks at temporarily depressed prices to finance your income retirement needs, so soundness is of utmost importance for retired investors.

In that spirit, companies such as Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE:CL), Nike (NYSE:NKE), and Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) are top candidates for investors in their golden years. Investment decisions are ultimately about balancing risk and potential rewards. Big and established companies such as Colgate-Palmolive, Nike, and Berkshire Hathaway are unlikely to deliver explosive gains over a short period of time. However, they have what it takes to continue producing consistent returns over the years, so they are world-class investment alternatives for investors in retirement to consider buying.

It’s Not Too Late To Buy Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 24, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Income-seeking investors have long had a difficult time, given that interest rates have been so low for so long. And with bond yields falling even more this year than many people thought possible, the resulting flight to yield and safety has pushed prices of many dividend stocks to lofty levels. But it’s still not too late to consider dividend stocks — if you really need the income.

As you can see, the two S&P 500 SPX, -0.09% sectors that have risen the most so far this year are telecommunications and utilities, which are well-known for high concentrations of stocks with high dividend yields. Katie Nixon, the chief investment officer at Northern Trust Wealth Management, recently described investors’ clear preference for dividend stocks and high-yield bonds this year, and warned that investors’ psychology can “make you do things at precisely the wrong time.”

4 Big Dividends Slashed: What To Do Next

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 24, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Your favorite dividend stock just chopped its payout – should you sell? It depends. Believe it or not, some dividend cuts are actually wildly bullish signals. They mark the bad news being officially “priced in” as shares soon embark on a furious contrarian rally. Other payout cuts, however, are red flags begging you to sell before you lose even more money. They are truly a white flag of financial distress that shows the firm failed at its sole responsibility to shareholders – to get the dividend paid.

We’ll discuss post-cut strategies in a moment, including specifics on recent dividend disappointments from the likes of American Capital Agency Corp (AGNC), Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (USA) (POT), Williams Companies Inc (WMB) and the iShares US Preferred Stock ETF (PFF). Should they be sold now, or held in hopes of a relief rally?

Feel like going fishing? With dividend stocks getting red hot in this rally, we went bottom fishing for some worthy candidates which may have been overlooked. This stock yields over 19% and has a new 80% dividend payout policy. Industry tailwinds have created 49% revenue growth and four-digit EPS growth. It's selling at a good discount to book value, and is just 3% above its 52-week lows.

Feel like going fishing? With dividend stocks getting red hot in this rally, we went bottom fishing for some worthy candidates which may have been overlooked. But this seems like an oversight at best. Over the past five quarters, EURN has put up huge numbers, thanks to booming spot rates brought on by increasing demand for oil and vessels to carry or ship it. In addition, the company started paying dividends. Like many European companies, EURN pays two semi-annual dividends; one, in May, is its final dividend, and the other, in September, is its interim dividend.

5 High-Yield Dividend Stocks to Buy in August

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, August 23, 2016 | | 0 comments »

For investors looking to generate superior returns while still enjoying some semblance of relative stability, it's hard to beat buying and holding good high-yield dividend stocks. But it's easier said than done to actually identify those high-yielders with the greatest chance of beating the market. We asked five Motley Fool contributors to pick a high-yield dividend stock they believe investors would be wise to consider buying this month. Each is yielding significantly more than the S&P 500 average of 2%. Read on to see which companies they chose and why...

I believe income investors who want a discounted high-yielding stock should consider France-based content provider Orange (NYSE:ORAN) in August. Orange was rocked, as was much of Europe, after Britain announced it was going to leave the European Union. After Qualcomm's (NASDAQ:QCOM) most recent quarterly report showed encouraging signs of an early turnaround, I think now is a great time for investors to pick up shares of the high-yielding semiconductor specialist. If you're after a high-yield stock and you can stomach an above-average amount of risk, I'd suggest you put Seaspan (NYSE:SSW) on your watch list. Shares are currently yielding just under 10%, which should grab the attention of any income-focused investor.
