5 Interesting Stocks For Income Investors With a Long Investment Horizon

Whether it’s your first, second, or third year reading my annual dividend stock picks, I’m excited to share my top retirement income picks for 2017. My theme for the year is “Stay in your lane and go with what you know.” It serves as a reminder that despite all the hoopla going on in the markets since the presidential election, the key to investing success is staying disciplined.

However, staying disciplined isn’t as easy as many investors expect. Simply because, different styles and approaches can ebb and flow with the markets direction. 

This became evident late last year when interest rates shot through the roof. In less than three months, the 10-year US treasury jumped almost 1%, pushing down many of popular dividend paying stocks. For conservative investors who enjoy the income from stocks sectors like utilities, REITs, MLPs, and even boring consumer defensive stocks, 2017 couldn’t come fast enough.

As a result, many income oriented investors and retirees saw their portfolio’s flat-line despite the Dow and other major indices hitting new all-time highs. 

That being said, I don’t think investors should flee from these sectors. While a new administration and Republican Congress might signal changes ahead, the election results have not diminished their long-term brand positioning, cash flow, or ability to make good on their dividends payments.

Attached you will find a couple of stocks that might be interesting for income investors with a long investment horizon.
