Dividends4Life: 7 Dividend Stocks That Are Perfect for Retirement

7 Dividend Stocks That Are Perfect for Retirement

Posted by D4L | Saturday, December 23, 2017 | | 1 comments »

Dividend stocks and retirement investors go hand in hand. After all, retirement investing is all about income and with the days of living off of bond interest long gone, dividend stocks have taken up the mantle. But dividend stocks could even be better than bonds in some aspects. That’s in part to their ability to raise payouts, dividend stocks can offer plenty of inflation protection as historically most firms will actually increase their dividends by more than interest rate hikes. Meanwhile, reinvested dividends offer higher compounding and downside protection. Here are seven dividend stocks that are perfect for retirement investors.

You can’t get much better on that front than Realty Income (NYSE:O). That dripping sound you hear could be steady stream of dividends pouring into your wallet if you bet on Aqua America Inc (NYSE:WTR). The average person can’t go buy a bridge. But what they can buy is shares of Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P. (NYSE:BIP). Monopolies are great for investors. And one of few legal monopolies left in the world happens to be railroads. That’s great news for Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP). Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) needs no introduction. Patent cliff? What patent cliff? That’s what investors in blue-chip Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) are asking themselves these days. When it comes to the energy sector, there really is only one dividend stock investors should look at and that’s Phillips 66 (NYSE:PSX).
