Safe Large-Cap Blue-Chip Dividend Champions For Your Retirement Portfolios: Part 2

Chuck Carnevale - Thursday, August 28, 2014

Summary

  • Retired investors should appropriately be more concerned about safety and growth of income than about earning high returns.
  • Retired investors no longer have the opportunity for pay raises associated with working.
  • Most recognized blue-chip dividend paying stocks have been in business for many decades, and in some cases for a century or more.
  • Many Dividend Champions have increased their dividends for 40, 50 or more years in a row.
  • The notion that blue-chip Dividend Champions are too risky for retired investors is greatly exaggerated.

Testimonials


“I appreciate your work, Chuck. As a subscriber to FAST Graphs™, I use the tool to decide on whether to purchase additional shares of what I currently hold or to add a new holding. Your articles help me make full use of the tool and give other readers valuable information, if they take the time to learn. One of the biggest enhancements that I use is the FFO data added for MLPs and REITs.”


“When FAST Graphs™ were unavailable because of Hurricane Sandy, I realized how much I need them in order to make investment decisions.

(Wish I could be) Long FAST Graphs!!!”


“One more vote for the value of FAST Graphs™; just started a subscription to Chuck's great service (premium), and am having a ball analyzing so many stocks quickly.”


“I feel very ill-equipped to make investment decisions without Fast Graphs. :-)”


“Yesterday, I signed up for your F.A.S.T. Graphs™. It's a really amazing, valuable tool for checking over/undervaluation of stocks. Wish I had it years and years ago!!”
