Top Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Thursday, February 03, 2011 | | 0 comments »

According to the Pew Research Center, about 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 every day for the next 19 years. Between rising consumer prices, falling home values, and a tough economy, today’s newest oldsters are finding that, when it comes to a comfortable retirement, many of them are increasingly coming up short. In fact, according to a recent Employee Benefit Research Institute survey, one-third of people age 55 and older have less than $10,000 saved for their golden years, while a full two-thirds have less than $100,000 socked away.

So what is a prospective retiree to do? you ask... The answer is pretty simple: They need to begin creating an income stream from their investments to close the gaps they will inevitably face when they retire. And the time to get started was yesterday. This means building a portion of your portfolio around a solid base of dividend stocks. Because with the FED waging a virtual war on savers, the dividend payers are your next best option — versus things like CDs, or at this stage, even bonds... That's why long-term investors are so eager to gobble up high dividend yields these days.
