I am an individual investor who would be happy to invest in CD's at my local bank for retirement income but the FDIC took my bank and the Fed took that option away. Now I enjoy researching dividend paying stocks that I can invest in for the long term. I know nothing but I love to read. I have been self employed in the building trades all my life.
