Why Not Use Dividend Stocks for Retirement Income?
Today we answer a question from a listener. He asks:
I am looking to retire soon and trying to determine the best way to generate retirement income with interest rates so low. Traditionally, you could have done this with treasuries or CDs. Why wouldn’t buying dividend stocks paying 4% to 5% makes sense? In addition to the dividends, you have the opportunity for appreciation.
We talk about the challenges of this strategy.
