Dividends4Life: The Best High-Yielding Stocks For Retirement Investing

Retirement investing is getting a lot more attention because more retirees are living longer. That means higher expenses to better enjoy retirement, and, many times, substantially higher expenses in the latter years when expenses can soar. Formerly, retirement investing meant selling stocks and more aggressive investments to be reinvested in "safe" investments, generally bonds with only moderate yields. Even though investment grade bonds were considered to be safe, interest is flat over the life of a bond with no capital appreciation.

Investment strategy has changed because of longer life expectancy. Now dividends, especially growing dividends, have a greater importance in retirement accounts. In recent years, capital gains have been spotty. Bloomberg just reported that bonds outperformed stocks over the last 30 years! Many of the most highly regarded stocks have had little growth and some are even below levels reached in the heady days of 2000. Dow stocks such as Microsoft (MSFT), General Electric (GE) and Home Depot (HD) are among those with lower prices than 10 years ago. Growing dividends from companies with long records of raising dividends can bring excellent results over the long term.
