Dividend Stocks For a Safe Retirement Portfolio

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, December 18, 2012 | | 0 comments »

This year has been an interesting year for the income investors. As a result of low interest rates, the money has flowed into high dividend stocks. Many companies have realized that, and increased their dividends in order to attract investors. I liked three companies in particular due to solid earnings growth and an impressive history of dividend increases. Companies with such dividend growth histories could be nice additions to a safe retirement portfolio.

These companies generate free cash flows in excess of dividend payments, which should provide stability to dividend payments. Furthermore, all of these companies have the history of raising dividends by generous amounts. I believe income hunters should definitely take a look at these companies: ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM), Walgreen (NYSE: WAG) and GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK).
