Dividends & Income
This user currently has no profile.
I'm a couple of years past 65 and still work full-time in a field unrelated to investing. My employer makes it difficult for me to retire.
I work 15 minutes from my home, come and go as I please, take vacations pretty much when I want and am under virtually no stress. As I said, my employer makes it difficult for me to retire.
Until about five years ago, and for a period of almost ten years, the majority of my retirement-building investments were in Canadian Income Trusts. I was very lucky and did very well. Then one day the Canadian government decided to pull the plug on that type of investment over a 5 year period. The next day I took a rather big hit, sold everything and began to concentrate on
building a US income portfolio.
At the present time my portfolio consists of dividend growers and preferred shares.
The things I like most about an income portfolio are:
a) Even though I'm probably very close to retirement, due to the income, my investment portfolio horizon is quite far out.
b) When I start living off the income I shouldn't have to make selling decisions (hopefully).
