Dividends4Life: The 7 Best Stocks to Buy for an Income-Rich Retirement

Portfolio manager Ned Davis studied the returns of S&P 500 stocks from 1972 to 2004. His goal? To figure out what the best stocks to buy were over this 33-year period. Davis concluded that if you bought dividend stocks whose companies grew the dividends paid to shareholders over the 33 years, you’d have achieved an annual return of 10.6%, 330 basis points better than dividend-paying stocks that didn’t increase their yields over the same period. For the purposes of this article, we’re going to recommend the seven best stocks to buy to meet or exceed the returns from the S&P 500 to help you do that...

Clorox Co (NYSE:CLX) is easily one of my favorite stocks of all time. On March 23, Sherwin-Williams Co (NYSE:SHW) announced that it was delaying the closing of its $11.3 all-cash deal to buy The Valspar Corp (NYSE:VAL), one its major competitors, by three months to June 21, so that it could gain the Federal Trade Commission’s approval. Americans have too much stuff, hence the need for self-storage companies like Extra Space Storage, Inc. (NYSE:EXR). A recent job advertisement placed by Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE:GS) suggests that the investment bank is looking to capture the mass affluent market by creating its own robo advisor. I’m going with CVS Health Corp (NYSE:CVS), a company with its fingers in many pies. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock is up 35.5% over the past 52 weeks through March 28 and is now the largest publicly traded company in the world. I’m including Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) in my list of seven stocks to buy for an income-rich retirement.
