    3 Tobacco Stocks Quietly Rising

    Behind the eye-catching headlines of trade wars, rising interest rates and market sell-offs, tobacco stocks have quietly tracked higher. In September, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) threatened to remove e-cigarettes – an alternative to traditional cigarettes that don't burn tobacco – from shelves if manufacturers don't take preventative measures to curb widespread teenage use. Investors have welcomed a regulatory clampdown on e-cigarettes, as they directly threaten tobacco companies' sales.

  • 20 Dividend Stocks to Fund 20 Years of Retirement

    20 Dividend Stocks to Fund 20 Years of Retirement

    The conventional approach to funding retirement is to withdraw 4% of your savings in the first year, followed by "pay raises" in each subsequent year to adjust for inflation. Over a 30-year retirement, the thinking goes, there is little chance of running out of money if this retirement portfolio is invested in a mix of dividend stocks, a few growth stocks and bonds. Today's world is different. Interest rates and bond yields have never been this low for this long, reducing future expected returns. And Americans are living longer than ever before. Instead of facing the uncomfortable decision of what securities to sell or wondering if you are at risk of outliving your savings, you can lean on the cash from dividend stocks to fund a substantial portion of your retirement. Simply Safe Dividends published an in-depth guide about living on dividends in retirement here. Many companies in the market yield 4% or more. And unlike with the 4% withdrawal rule, if you rely on solid dividend stocks for that 4% annually, you won't have to worry as much about the market's unpredictable fluctuations. Better still, you'll have a chance to leave your heirs with a sizable portfolio when the time comes. Here's a look at 20 quality dividend stocks, yielding roughly 4% or higher, that should fund at least 20 years of retirement, if not more. They have paid uninterrupted dividends for more than 20 consecutive years, appear to have secure payouts and have the potential to collectively grow their dividends to protect investors' purchasing power.
