  • 5 Best Stocks For Retirement Investors

    If you are in retirement, it's important to have multiple income streams, such as Social Security and savings and investments you built up on your own. For the lucky, there are pensions, but those are fast disappearing. Investing in stocks that pay a dividend is another way to generate income while you're in retirement.

    Dividend stocks offer investors an attractive alternative to traditional fixed-income investments. Dividend-paying stocks have the potential to generate income in two ways: first, through the regular dividend payment, and second, through potential appreciation of the stock price itself. Investors can expect to receive an annual dividend ranging from 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the stock's value.

    Below is a selection of stocks with solid yields that could be interesting for traders and investors.

    Here are the detailed results...

    AT&T -- Yield: 5.37%

  • 5 High Yielding S&P 500 Stocks With A Very Predictable Business

    Who don't like stocks with recurring income? For sure, I do. There are many stocks that are deeply woven with the economy and their business model growth with the economy when it enlarges.

    In reality, it isn't easy to find those stocks. At the first sight, there are many companies that seem to fill the predictable business but in fact, they are driving and growing a business which is hanging on a thread.

    What a company need is to have an inimitable business. I'm not talking about low hanging fruit business. China could faster imitate this kind of business. Data storage or harware are such examples.

    Today I like to introduce 5 companies that might have a deeper integrated business with a predictable income. I used the gurufocus predictable companies' screener for my work. Attached are the 5 top picks that earned the highest rating on the database.

    These are my results. Which do you like?

  • Dividend Growers Of The Week

    I'm a dividend growth investor and watch daily what companies have raised their dividends. During the past week, seven stocks with a market capitalization of more than 1 billion increased dividends. Five of them have a current yield of more than 4 percent.

    I've compiled all stocks with dividend growth in one sheet. Attached, you can find the list. The biggest names are U.S. Bancorp which Warren Buffett also owns. He recently added the company to his portfolio.

    Agilent, Morgan Stanley and the monthly dividend payer Realty Income increased dividends.

    Others are the fast growing semiconductor company Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) who has an unbelievable momentum as well as the Retail REIT W.P. Carey.

    Agilent is also a stock that Warren Buffett should love while Morgan Stanley announced a huge dividend hike in April this year. Realty Income is still one of the most favored High-Yield stocks that pay monthly dividends.

    Many banks and REITs are on the list. It should be a sign that those stocks benefit from low interest rates and quantitative easing.

    Banks benefit not as much as REITs due to the low interest rates, but banks start to hike because their regulation allows it after the shocking financial crises in 2008.

    Remember that those two industries are not in my dividend growth focus because they are cyclic and offer a kind of black-box for investors which I don't like. I like to see what I get.
