5 Dividend Stocks For Simplifying The 4% Rule

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, February 10, 2015 | | 0 comments »

The "4% rule" of retirement has been hotly debated the past few years as more and more baby boomers leave the workforce. Many now say that 4% is too high of a withdrawal rate for the average retiree considering the low interest rate environment. If you intend to follow the typical retirement investing advice that most financial companies will recommend to their clients (which usually involves recommending one or more of their company's mutual funds that have a high bond allocation), then the fixed-income portion of your portfolio will certainly fall short of covering a 4% return.

Below are five stocks that could be the start of a well-diversified dividend income portfolio that yields at least 4%, should provide investors with annual increases to their income each year, and meets the above safety criteria: AT&T (NYSE:T), Kimberly-Clark (NYSE:KMB), Main Street Capital (NYSE:MAIN), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM).
