Buy High Yielding Safe Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 28, 2010 | | 0 comments »

This big rally presents a big problem for retirees looking for income. Bonds have increased in value so much, and interest rates have fallen so low, we're simply not able to earn big, safe yields like we did last year. Fortunately, there's a solution... All you have to do is buy stocks that offer the safety of bonds... and the upside of stocks.

Bond investors demand regular income over a fixed period of time. They also demand their initial investment (called "principal") be returned in full. The problem now is that government bonds yield a measly 3%... and safe corporate bonds yield about 5.5%. While these yields are better than losing money, I believe investors can do better right now by owning stocks with rich dividend payouts of at least 5%... whose dividends are safe and growing. You can find plenty of these stocks in the drug and utility sectors.
