Last week, we outlined a smart, sound retirement income strategy funded by dividends alone. Now, let’s talk growth.

We’re already well ahead of the flawed 4% fallacy – the notion that you can (or should) sell some capital every year for retirement income. With our “no withdrawal” technique, we’re already keeping our capital intact – and collecting 8% yields to boot!

Believe it or not, we can do even better with some savvy asset allocation. If you’re not yet as filthy rich as you hoped you’d be by now, don’t worry – we still have plenty of time to get you there.…

Is retail dead? It depends.

While Amazon.com (AMZN) is indeed making life miserable for many brick-and-mortar outfits, I’d like to show you five dividend stocks in the space that could be a month or two away from getting a big shot in the arm.
