5 Best Stocks For Retirement Investors (Yield And Value)

If you are in retirement, it’s important to have multiple income streams, such as Social Security and savings and investments you built up on your own. For the lucky, there are pensions, but those are fast disappearing. Investing in stocks that pay a dividend is another way to generate income while you're in retirement.

Dividend stocks offer investors an attractive alternative to traditional fixed-income investments. Dividend-paying stocks have the potential to generate income in two ways: first, through the regular dividend payment, and second, through potential appreciation of the stock price itself. Investors can expect to receive an annual dividend ranging from 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the stock’s value.

Below is a selection of stocks with solid yields that could be interesting for traders and investors.

Here are the detailed results...

Dogs Of The Dividend Aristocrats Index 2015

The “Dogs of the Dow Jones” theory is a popular investment strategy. Put most of your money into those stocks from the Dow Jones with the highest yield, cheapest price ratios and big expected earnings growth.

It's easier to tell you this than to do it. However, I like to enlarge this philosophy to stocks from the Dividend Aristocrats index.

Here are the detailed results:

20 Healthcare Dividend Stocks Each Investor Must Love

Buying and holding dividend-paying stocks has proven to be a terrific strategy for long-term investors. Companies with the ability to raise their dividends over time can become reliable sources of income for shareholders.

The healthcare industry can be a great place to find dividend-paying companies since healthcare spending tends to be recession-resistant. This allows companies with strong competitive positions to continue to pay out strong dividends, even if the economy takes a turn for the worse.

I've compiled some of the 20 most attractive dividend stocks from the sector in one sheet.

Here are the 5 best picks from the sector by yield...more in the attached sheet....

8 Attractive Looking Dividend Growth Companies

The recent small sell-off gave me an opportunity to look at the current dividend achievers lists; those also include lists of Champions, Contenders and Aristocrats.

I've looked for cheap opportunities with a solid growing business. ACE and TROW were both stocks that cached my thoughts in the recent days. For sure, their yields stand only at 2.54 and 2.67 percent as well but remember that they pay only a small amount of money to shareholders while the business models enables it to pay much more.

ACE also started to buy bigger amounts of own shares. That's fantastic because in the past, they thrown only shares on the market to finance growth.

TROW paid a special dividend earlier this year but still has enough capability to raise dividends in the future. The current payout is only around 40 percent with no debt on balance sheets.

Here are the top picks from my screening results. Which do you like?

17 Fast Growing Dividend Stocks With An Unbelievable Momentum

Growth investors are looking for the next big thing that rules the market. They scout for stocks with enormous growth with hopes to pay later big dividends on a small investment when they have grown out.

Growth is wonderful and if I'm honest, I like stocks like Apple or Facebook too. Regretless, they are not only unicorns, more often prices are skyrocket; more likely in the case of Salesforce or Amazon than for Apple.

Today I've tried to compile a list of the fastest growing dividend stocks with unbelievable high growth rates, stocking not at a rate of more than 10 percent for the latest quarter over quarter reports.

I've selected only those stocks with a very large market capitalization of more than 10 billion in order to keep the big risk off the table.

As a result, 17 stocks joined my finishing list. Four of them have a yield over 2 percent, which is very comfortable in times of low interest rates.

Please let me know your thoughts about the winning list. Do you like some of the stocks?

REIT Investing: 6 Top Picks From The Dividend Growth Space

As a long-term reader of my blog, you may have been noticed that REITs and MLPs are some of the highest paying dividend stocks.

When comparing REIT yields to investments with qualified dividends, you must always look at them on an after-tax basis. REITs trade on major stock exchanges and have become immensely popular since their introduction.

REITs pay high dividends due to the fact that they need to pay high amounts of their assets and gross income in order to keep their REIT status and therefore the tax optimized corporate structure.

Below are 6 top REIT picks from the dividend growth space that have a dividend yield of 5 percent or more.

These are the results...

7 Cheap International Dividend Stocks

I've found a new screener who selects stocks by several criteria and is more forward looking and more international. The database is from Reuters in my view but I'm not sure about that.

However, I run several screens based on yield and valuation ratios. Today I like to show you the cheapest stocks with top yields from the international market.

I've also included business stability measures into the screen. Below are the top results with a market capitalization of more than 10 billion USD. Which do you like?

Maybe The Best Dividend Stocks Of The S&P 500

Investing in indexes is a great way to avoid big risk especially when they are highly liquid like the Dow Jones or S&P 500. 

Both are survival indices because over the recent years and decades, bad companies become eliminated and good stocks were included. Today, Apple is a star in the Dow Jones. 

 By eliminating the bad stocks from the good ones, investors can create an outperformance. The only question is how do we beat the market by selected better performing stocks? 

To find the best dividend payers today, we need to divide the index into "High-yielders" and "dividend-growers". The first class of stocks pay a higher dividend but has a slow growth rate while the second group grows faster while paying only small amounts of money to shareholders. 

In addition, I run my screen for firms with solid earnings outlooks and solid fundamentals, both within the high yielders and dividend growers’ category. 

Finally, a list of nine dividend paying stocks remain. Please find attached the detailed results of the screen. Which do you like?

4 Great Dividend Stocks With Double-Digit Earnings Growth

Long-Term dividend growth investors need to look at the expected earnings growth of a company. The idea is simple: A growing company will also raise dividends if they don't strengthen their dividend policy.

What you also need to do is to observe the current market price of the company. If you pay 20 times of actual sales, you must have a very fast growing and highly profitable busienss to achieve a solid return in the future.

Below, I've compiled 4 stocks with double digit earnings forecasts for the mid-term and solid valuation figures.

4 Safe High-Yielding Stocks To Consider

Safety comes first, that's also one of my rules when I started to invest money into the stock market. I believe that it gives you a solid return to avoid the big risks because each loss you don't need is also a gain you don't need to catch by taking higher risks.

Growth is just as important. Investors in or near requirement should demand their investments grow dividend income at least as fast as inflation - and hopefully much faster. This gives you a boost in your standard of living each year.

Today I like to introduce 4 stocks with a large dividend growth history (more than 30 years that give investors a solid ground to invest.

Each of these businesses also has maintained a growth rate higher than the inflation rate for the last several years and has a dividend yield 3% or higher. These high yield stocks should provide income now and growth for future income. 

They all have exceptionally low stock price standard deviations. These 3 businesses also have strong competitive advantages that insulate them from the worst effects of recessions. In short, these are 4 high quality businesses that score high marks for safety.

4 Great Dividend Value Picks From The Old Country

Large cap investors are looking for high liquidly stocks. Most investors think that they offer a better risk profile but the truth is that a higher liquidity and media presence avoid a bigger mispricing on the market. 

Recently, I wrote about domestic and foreign dividend paying small-and midcaps that could give investors a bigger opportunity for rising returns via a small capitalization. The disadvantage is definitely the higher risks.

With the Standard & Poor’s 500 having tripled off its financial-crisis low to trade near an all-time high, investors have started to look overseas for cheap stocks.

Big money flooded the European market within recent months and pushed the local stock markets in Europe.

While the Euro is still in a down trend, the current QE program of the ECB could lead to further fire power on the market.

Attached are 4 big names from the old country with deep values and solid dividends. Most of the results come from the healthcare sector, especially from the pharmacy industry.

6 Mid Capitalized Dividend Achievers For Growth And Income Seeking Investors

Recently, I wrote about foreign small cap dividend stocks with growth potential. Small- and midcaps offer investors a higher opportunity because sales could grow faster from a low basis.

But there is no free lunch. Those stocks are also much riskier than large caps. Generally, smaller cap securities are more volatile, but often offer a higher rate of return over the long-term.

 Today I like to show you 6 small and mid capitalized stocks form the Dividend Achievers list that have risen dividends over more than 10 years in a row.

7 Of The Most Underestimated Dividend Stocks

It's hard to define a solid investing criterion which could bring you solid gains while excluding the big risks. 

I personally believe in dividends as a safe haven criteria because cash you have received in the past could compensate a potential loss. 

For sure, this is not a good return driver, especially when we are talking about yields of 1-2 percent yearly, but each penny sums to dollars if you compile enough of them.

Today I run my daily screen about cheap dividend paying stocks with double-digit earnings growth forecasts for the next five years. 

In addition, the stocks have a very comfortable debt situation, measured by a debt-to-equity ratio of less than 0.5.

These are my favorites from the screening results:

Dogs Of The Dow Jones: These Are The Cheapest Index Members

In the past, I've written more about cheap stocks. Due to the current market situation, there is a huge problem to discover cheap stocks. Today we classify stocks with a P/E multiple of less than 20 as cheap.

That's a risky way. Your expected yield will not be high but in the current situation, it's the cheapest play in the market.

Today I like to talk about the good old Dogs of the Dow Theory. Those are the 10 cheapest stocks of the Dow Jones index.

These are the results in detail:

10 Foreign Dividend Small Cap Ideas

I read an interesting article during my daily resarch about UK dividend stocks. The article introduced some small cap UK stocks with a promising dividend future.

"Apart from a dividend growth streak of at least six years, we looked for companies that are forecast to grow dividends next year and have generated double-digit compound earnings growth over the past five years. The stocks also needed to have a QualityRank of at least 75 (out of 100). This scores and ranks every company in the market using measures of profitability, financial strength and low risk - from zero (low quality) to 100 (high quality)."

Attached is the list from the article. Great work in my view. Which stocks do you like?

The Best Guarantee To Get Dividends Over 100 Years

Dividends are important for investors because they pay down your investment and reduce risk. Growing dividends are good but only a small group of companies could grow their dividends year over year.

Look at General Electric. The company reduced its dividends within the financial crisis but paid investors cash. Is GE a bad stock? No, definitely not.

There are times in which the company has problems but for the long-term the business perspectives should become better due to a stronger and growing economy. This should not work for every company but for the average stock market.

Today I like to show you the 7 best dividend paying stocks that paid a dividend for more than a century, over 100 years or more.

These are the results:

7 Stocks With Current Shareholder Yields Of 15% Or More

You know that dividends are essential but buybacks also play a significant role in creating shareholder value.

Today I would like to show you those 7 stocks with the highest shareholder yields. I'm not talking about yields of 5 percent or so. I'm taking the extreme of 15 percent or more. The results came from Goldman Sachs latest Total Cash Return to Shareholders list from April 23, 2015.
