Dividends4Life: My Favorite High-Yield Retirement Stocks

My Favorite High-Yield Retirement Stocks

Posted by D4L | Saturday, January 31, 2015 | | 0 comments »

As millions of Americans approach retirement age, many are concerned about how they'll be able to fund their existing lifestyles during their golden years. Dividend growth stocks can help you achieve financial independence, but what if you're looking for a purer income play? For those seeking secure, high-yield investments that still offer moderate income-growth opportunities, I'd like to introduce you to three of my favorite high-yield investments.

Real estate investment trusts, or REITs, are businesses that generate income from leasing space in real estate properties. REITs pay no taxes so long as they pay 90% of their income as dividends. Thus these securities are beloved by income investors for their high yields. Among REITs, the triple net lease business model is my favorite. That's because the customer pays not only rent, but also the taxes, insurance, and maintenance for the properties. This means triple net lease REITs like Realty Income (NYSE: O), National Retail Properties (NYSE: NNN), and W.P. Carey (NYSE: WPC) often have lower overhead costs.
