In retirement, investors must figure out how to generate enough income without a job while also ensuring that they don't outlive their income stream. The best retirement stocks to buy in 2020 (or any other year), then, assuredly must be dividend-paying ones.Receiving regular dividends reduces an investor's dependence on the market's fickle price swings to make ends meet. Whether or not the market rises or falls in 2020, a portfolio of quality businesses can continue delivering predictable, growing dividend income.Compared to many fixed-income investments, dividend stocks also can generate higher current income in today's low-interest-rate environment, growing their payouts each year to help preserve one's purchasing power. Dividend stocks, like other equities, provide meaningful long-term price appreciation potential as well.Research firm Simply Safe Dividends published an in-depth guide about living on dividends in retirement here. However, a key component to this strategy is finding the best retirement stocks that can deliver safe dividends and grow in value over time.On that note, these are the 20 best retirement stocks to buy in 2020. The 20 stocks on this list appear to have safe dividends, yield between 3.5% and 6.9%, and have solid potential to continue growing their payouts in the long term.

It was another down day as traders fear that the trade war could worsen before it gets better. Let's look at a few top stock trades in the meantime. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Coupa Software (COUP)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comCoupa Software (NASDAQ:COUP) was just unlucky when it came to its earnings date. The market took a hit on Monday and Tuesday, with COUP reporting after the close on the former.It sent shares reeling at the open, but the stock has since recouped most of those losses. Okay fine, I'll show myself out after the charts, but this one is exciting.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe stock found support at the 50-day and 100-day moving average. After briefly breaking below these marks, shares reclaimed them and rallied higher. Conservative bulls who go long COUP can now use a close below the 50-day and 100-day moving averages as their stop-losses. More aggressive traders will use Tuesday's low. * 7 Exciting Biotech Stocks to Buy Now Either way, let's see if the stock can rally up to resistance between $155 and $160. If it can, a breakout could be on deck. On the flip side, a move below Tuesday's low could put $125 and/or the 200-day moving average on the table. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Peloton (PTON)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comFirst Peloton (NASDAQ:PTON) was hated. Then it was apparently loved as momentum traders got a hold of it and ran it from the low-$20's to a high of $37 just the other day. The stock even rallied 4.5% in the face of a market-wide correction. There were only a handful of stocks showing relative strength that day.In any regard, shares were down 9% with less than one hour to go in Tuesday's trading session. It leaves PTON sitting right on the 78.6% retracement. After such a big move up, I'm not in any rush to buy Peloton on its first sign of a pullback.If the 78.6% retracement holds, let's see if PTON can erase some of these losses. If not, look for a test down into the $30 to $31 area, where Peloton will find a momentum breakout spot, as well as the 61.8% retracement and 20-day moving average. Falling below that level puts the $29 IPO price on the table. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Canopy Growth (CGC)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comThe S&P 500 spent much of the session lower by more than 1%, yet cannabis stocks were holding up. In fact, they weren't just avoiding new lows, they were actually trading higher.Specifically regarding Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC), bulls have to see two things from the stock, one of which needs to happen, the other of which can't happen. CGC needs to break above downtrend resistance and needs to avoid making new 52-week lows.Regarding the latter, the 50-day moving average has been a lid on the stock price and most recently rejected CGC amid its late-November surge. While holding up over $17.50 in the short-term is good, we need to see more before we can trust CGC on the long side. Clearing the 50-day is the first step in that process.Trading higher amid a down day in the markets could be a positive development in that regard. Let's keep an eye on this one. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Realty Income (O)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comOne of America's favorite REITs, Realty Income (NYSE:O) has been struggling lately. For those looking to buy, they may hope those struggles continue.Shares look to be setting up in a descending triangle pattern (blue lines). That's where downtrend resistance continues to squeeze a stock lower into a static level of support. If it gives way, it should usher in lower prices.I don't know that O will get down to $72, but it would make an excellent buy as it pertains to risk/reward. If its decline takes time, though, the 200-day moving average may support the stock before it gets there. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 5: FedEx (FDX)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comIt feels like FedEx (NYSE:FDX) stock has been struggling for a long time now. $150 has been support over the past year, with one slip down to $138 in October.Falling below $150 puts that sub-$140 level on watch again. Below that and even more selling can take place. Before we can really trust FDX on the long side, we need to see it reclaim downtrend resistance and the 50-week moving average.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

Dividend stocks are about the only game in town to generate a decent income. Many people rely on dividend income to live in retirement, notes Tom Hutchinson, editor of Cabot Dividend Investor.
The typical American's life tends to be organized around monthly payments, yet somehow, monthly dividend stocks are the exception, not the norm.Your mortgage, your car payment, your phone bill ... even your Netflix payment is on a regular monthly payment plan. That's perfectly fine when you're working and are used to getting one or two paychecks every month. Budgeting is simply a matter of making sure your regular monthly income covers your monthly expenses with a little left over for emergencies.But once you retire, the situation changes. Sure, the Social Security check still comes monthly, and if you're lucky enough to still get a pension, your income generally comes in monthly as well. But the payout from the vast majority of your investments tends to be a lot more sporadic. Most stocks pay their dividends quarterly, and most bonds pay interest only semiannually."Cash flow mismatch is a common problem for recent retirees of all income levels," says Mario Randholm, founder of alternative investments specialist Randholm & Co. "And the cash drag from keeping more cash on hand to compensate for erratic income reduces long-term returns."High-yield monthly dividend stocks can be part of the solution. Stocks that pay monthly dividends better align your income to your spending.You shouldn't buy a stock simply because it pays a monthly dividend, of course. That would be as ridiculous as choosing a mortgage bank based on the specific day of the month your payment would be due. Clearly, the stock needs to meet your criteria for yield, quality or growth prospects. But if a stock checks all the right boxes, why not also enjoy a monthly payout?Here, we'll look at 10 high-yield monthly dividend stocks to buy in 2020. SEE ALSO: The 10 Best REITs to Buy for 2020
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) - companies that invest in a variety of properties, from office buildings to apartments and self-storage buildings - built big gains in 2019.A prominent REIT gauge, the FTSE Nareit All Equity REIT Index, gained 25.4% through Nov. 21 (including dividends), with many of the best REITs doing far better. In contrast, the small-cap Russell 2000 Index (used for comparison because the majority of REITs are smaller companies) has gained 18.9%.Of course, people don't ordinarily invest in REITs to beat the stock market averages. They invest in them for income. By law, REITs must pay out at least 90% of their net earnings as dividends. The average REIT in the FTSE index delivers a dividend yield of 3.6%, compared with 1.8% for both the bellwether 10-year Treasury note and the S&P; 500\. When the yield of bonds and stocks are so low, REITs become extremely popular.Real estate also provides diversification. While REITs are still stocks, they don't always move in the same direction as the broad market. And their above-average dividend yields are a nice shelter in a downturn.While you can invest in a real estate fund, such as the Vanguard Real Estate ETF (VNQ), there are plenty of good individual REITs to buy, many of which offer high yields and reasonable valuations, despite the sector's towering heights this year. "REITs are not a homogenous group," says Chris Kuiper, equity analyst at CFRA Research. In just the past year, REITs have a performance difference of 160 percentage points.Which ones have the top prospects for the future? Read on as we examine the 10 best REITs to buy for 2020.

Most U.S. companies that pay dividends do it quarterly, or once every 90 days or so (foreign firms usually pay but once or twice a year). If your income stocks are on the same schedule, your payments will come much less regularly than, say, your relentless gas and electric bills.That's why many retirees and other dividend fans try to arrange matters so the income arrives more frequently. You can easily assemble a set of excellent dividend stocks with staggered pay dates. That's the idea of our Dividend-a-Month portfolio, assembled by the editors of Kiplinger's Investing for Income: cash every month, without interruption. You can play the calendar without dabbling in questionable stocks or worrying about the reliability of dividends.As a practical matter, note two key dates for dividend stocks. One is the "record date," the deadline to be a shareholder so you get the next payment. The record date is usually three to six weeks before the "payment date," which is when the dollars should appear in your brokerage account. We're using the actual arrival of the payment to match companies with their months. SEE ALSO: 14 High-Yield Dividend Stocks to Buy for the 4% Rule
