7 Stocks With Reliable Dividends For Long-Term Retirement Investors

Dividend investing, or choosing stocks with a reliable cash payout, is a proven strategy. 

In the stock market, there are two paths to return on investment: capital appreciation and dividends.


Of the two paths, the only one with any reliability is the cash dividend.

Investors seeking a reliable rate of return can look to blue-chip dividend-paying stocks with confidence. The cash dividend is a company policy.

It must be voted on, declared and authorized by the board of directors, who arguably know the current condition of the company better than anyone else, as well as the prospects for the future. The cash dividend has a record date, an ex-date and a pay date.

Reliable dividends are more important for retirees, income growth investors who like to retire earlier and don't want to look each quarter at the results of the cyclic company while fearing a dividend cut.

Attached I've tried to compile a few dividend stock ideas, large caps with a solid dividend growth history, that may offer a big margin of safety for anxious investors.

Here are the results...
