The 7% Solution
As children during the fifties, we were taught by our parents, often subconsciously, four fiscal lessons: live frugally; save something of every paycheck; avoid debt; tithe to the community.

This author, an independent financial advisor for nearly three decades, shares his Benjamin Graham approach to portfolio design and maintenance. You can build a portfolio of investment grade corporate bonds with 5% - 6% yields to maturity. You can discover the many stocks that pay sustaining dividends of 6%+ from firms with strong Free Cash Flow, low debt to equity and a committment to their customers, their community and their shareholders.
