Dividends4Life: Boring but Beautiful and Bountiful Dividend Stocks

Dividend investing is all about owning investments that pay you — and pay you well — through thick and thin markets. And whether you are building a portfolio or living off of a portfolio in retirement, dividends equally make for better returns. If you are starting out and working to increase your portfolio, piling up dividend cash and re-investing, makes for a great deal more certainty over placing a bet that the general stock market will simply go up. And of course, in retirement, dividend cash is an excellent compliment to other retirement income.

To start investing in preferred stocks, there are three main ways to proceed — mutual funds, exchange-traded funds and individual preferred stocks. One of my favorite funds is the closed-end Flaherty & Crumrine Preferred Income Opportunity Fund (NYSE:PFO), with a 6.6% dividend yield. Then on the ETF front, one of the more prominent is the iShares Preferred and Income Securities ETF (NASDAQ:PFF).
