Six Stocks for Living the Good Life

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, June 09, 2010 | | 0 comments »

The lowest-risk, most secure way to a great retirement is to invest in blue-chip stocks. One caveat before we get started: Blue chips are not the way to grab slam-dunk, overnight returns -- you won't be eating caviar and vacationing in Majorca by next week. But because they produce steadily rising payouts and are the most solid companies around, dividend-paying blue chips are the surest way to guarantee that you'll have income when you need it most.

My case for dividend-paying blue chips is based on their rock-solid stability. You want to invest in blue chips that have proven they are committed to maintaining and increasing their payouts over time, and a company that survived this recession without slashing dividends is a pretty solid bet. Such businesses will reward your trust over the long term, as they've rewarded countless investors before.
