Dividends4Life: Great Dividend Stocks for Retirement

Great Dividend Stocks for Retirement

Posted by D4L | Sunday, November 24, 2013 | | 0 comments »

It’s hard to beat telecommunications stocks for retirement income, especially the bluest of the blue chips, because they aren’t going away — and hold the promise of market-beating returns over the long haul. Yes, they’re slow-growth businesses and fairly boring stocks, but AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) — both members of the Dow Jones Industrial Average — are perfect stocks for retirement planning and retirees.

Past performance in never a guarantee of future returns, but if history is even a rough guide, T and VZ — thanks in no small part to their generous dividends — will inexorably outpace the S&P 500. Indeed, over the last decade, T’s total return (price appreciation plus dividends) beats the broader market by more than 42 percentage points. VZ did even better. Its total return of nearly 186% clobbered the S&P 500 by 78 points.
