Dividends4Life: 5 Risky Dividend Stocks to Dump From Your Portfolio Now

In April, the McKinsey Global Research Institute released a report warning that the 30-year run of near-8% annualized returns will soon be a memory. That’s because the forces that drove it — falling interest rates, strong Chinese growth and a North American workforce in its prime — are slowing, and even starting to turn on us. The upshot: over the next 20 years, McKinsey says investors can expect gains no higher than 6.5% annualized … and as low as 4%.

In the sub-7% era, the last companies you’ll want to be caught holding are those with meager sales growth and overstretched valuations. That’s a recipe for big drops as investors come to realize there’s little to support their lofty expectations. Here are five stocks you’ll want to keep far away from your retirement portfolio—or dump now if you own them: Home Depot Inc (HD), Realty Income Corp (O), Anheuser Busch Inbev SA (ADR) (BUD), Constellation Brands, Inc. (STZ) and Altria Group Inc (MO).
