I'm at the point in mylife that my wife and I are transitioning from the accumulation phase to thedistribution phase. About 7 years ago Imoved from mutual funds to individual stocks and in my humble opinion dividendstocks are the only way to go. Mutualfunds, ETFs can go up or down (which effects withdrawal rates) but dividendspay every month, quarter or yearly regardless of the price of the stock. Yes there can be dividend cuts, or otherdisasters (manmade or otherwise). I can go with treasuries and lose money dueto inflation or I can try and grow dividends through picking companies that paya dividend and then grows that dividend every year. Since I have been doingthis my current yield on cost has been 4.52% and the DGR this past year was8.8%, I can live with these numbers. Will this plan work for my wife and I until we leave planet earth? Only time will tell but I am comfortable withthis plan. Many thanks go out to all theSeeking Alpha contributors they have provided me choices and also allowed me togrow as an investor.
