  • Dividend Yield Vs. Dividend Growth: Intel & Microsoft [View article]
    My wording is definitely not that great here. I did not mean that I don't take into account any price appreciation. I meant that I assume there is no price appreciation to keep the examples simple. Thanks for pointing this out. I will clarify in the future.

    You can offset short-term gains with capital losses as well.

    Who said I was backtesting anything? It's all forward looking.

    Exactly. Thanks for replying what I was about to. Many people simply don't understand the strategy very well.

    Right, the numbers do work using that assumption. Thanks for clarifying. I may add an option to our calculators that allows for an assumption that the stock price moves to keep the dividend yield constant. Thanks for the feedback.

    That implies a total return of over 10% per year. I'm assuming you must be inputting some sort of stock price growth as well. Otherwise the numbers cannot be right.

    Yes, I did assume dividend reinvestment. I should have pointed that out. As for the price gain due to dividends going up, it's really just a matter of the difference in taxes at that point. Capital gains would be better in one respect, and that is that they are not taxed until the holdings are sold. But the difference in the overall retirement plan numbers is not that stark.

    I actually think the numbers are worse than that because they don't take into account how much debt these people are in. Many people have some money saved, but they also have credit card debt, student loan debt, etc.

  • AT&T And CenturyLink: How Will These Telecommunication Stocks' Dividends Fare Over Time? [View article]
    CTL is a good example of why many of us push "high quality" dividend payers. By high quality I mean those with little to no debt, a long history of increasing dividends, and a payout ratio below 75%.

    The couple in my example is 55, not 35.

    Sorry for the confusion. The "all in IRAs" is a misprint. Thanks for pointing it out.

  • Retirement Strategy For The 40-Somethings [View article]
    No doubt having the income in retirement support you is the way to go. But unfortunately with interest rates so low and many people refusing to have too much money in stocks in retirement, that is simply not possible for a lot of people any more.

    Thanks richjoy- It does seem that 68 is the new 65. Actually, 72 might be the new 65 for many people these days when it comes to when they can retire.
