In Your 50s? Consider Buying These 3 Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, October 12, 2016 | | 0 comments »

If you're in your 50s, you might not currently need your investments to generate an income stream. However, once your household income from work sources stops or slows down, you could need some of your investments to generate income to help pay for living expenses. So you might consider investing now in the stocks of companies with proven business models that provide solid growth potential -- as many in their 50s can expect to live 20 or more years longer -- yet also pay at least a small dividend that has the potential to grow over time.

Three diverse stocks that fit this bill are Cal-Maine Foods (NASDAQ:CALM), American Water Works Co. (NYSE:AWK), and Walt Disney Co. (NYSE:DIS). Before we dig in, here's a general overview of these stocks. Beta is a measure of stock-price volatility relative to the overall market, so American Water Works and Cal-Maine are just 19% and 70%, respectively, as volatile as the market, whereas Disney is 124% as volatile. Cal-Maine appears to be an income juggernaut, with a 5.9% yield over the trailing 12 months. However, this yield can vary greatly.
