    I'm new to HRB, I'm in the retirement age group, CD is about 1%, HRB shows div 4.6%.
    Is this a good Investment for my group?
    I don't want professional opinion, they do more harm to me than good.

    • I like the tax industry but right now there is too much up in the air with HRB to make it a solid divident investment in my opinion.

      Too many questions remain on how Blocks leadership will handle all the changes and what road will they take to start adapting to the new market place.

      Several before me gave some good advice. There are some great dividend plays out there this one has way too much risk and I would advise you to keep in CD vs risking it now with HRB. In the future it very well be a good play but not at the moment.

      Smart move on not listening to the professinals. I was in the securities business fo 15 years and I can honestly say that I was sickened by what I saw. So very few had any ethics at all and so many people need someone they can get good information from but trying to get it usualy ends up being taken advantage of.

      Good Luck

    • DNP has an excellent dividend. Pays monthly so that fits my agenda as a retiree.

    • There are plenty of other choices paying better dividends and safer. ED, BGS, FTR, MO, NYB, VZ etc.

    • Wait a while CD rates will go higher because the FED said they want more inflation in our economy.
      Ladder your CD's just in case the inflation gets out of hand.
      The 4%+ yield may be in jeopardy down the line,If so you will lose principal.
