Dividends4Life: 7 Stocks to Fund a Happy Retirement

7 Stocks to Fund a Happy Retirement

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, July 28, 2015 | | 0 comments »

I spend a lot time thinking about my investments. It sort of comes with the job description. But when I eventually retire, I don’t intend to spend my days with my eyes glued to a monitor. I want to retire with my mind at ease and with a steady stream of cash coming in. So, what are some of the qualities I would look for in an ideal retirement stock? To start, it absolutely must pay a respectable dividend. I buy plenty of stocks that do not pay dividends, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Young, fast-growing companies generally have more pressing needs for their cash. But any stock I would feel comfortable holding in retirement needs to be mature enough to pay a dividend — potentially for decades. And finally, the stock should have survived a good crisis or two without cutting its dividend. If you’re planning on living off dividends, you need to have faith that they’re going to be there for you when you need them. So with no more ado, let’s jump into my list of seven stocks to fund a happy retirement: Realty Income (O), Ventas, Inc. (VTR), McDonald’s (MCD), StoneMor Partners (STON), Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI), Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) and ExxonMobil (XOM).
