This is truly one way to appreciate your savings since CD's and even money markets have gone down the tubes.  The problem is that being stocks, there is no guarantee that capital will be preserved over the short term so it not beneficial for funds needed in a ten year time frame.  Using these instruments require some diligence and constant market research.   Winners include Reality Income (O) with an average appreciation of 15% per year.  Losers include US Bank (USB) with a net appreciation of -2.5%.  The 6% dividend sure looked good when I bought it.   One criteria that I have used to evaluate stocks is the executive payout.  Companies have problems with paying high rates of executive compensation and returning equity to the owners (dividends).  The stockholder is not the winner. Case in point is US Bank who cut dividends to ensure compensation.  But the fed made them do it.  Yea, I'm not that dumb but I was caught flatfooted..

Truly these stocks pay better than bonds, CD's and other so called safe investments.  There are plenty of somewhat risky stocks and MLPs  that pay better dividends. I worry about  ATT&T, Verizon and Johnson & Johnson.  They should be more prudent in their policies and products.  J&J have had entirely too many manufacturing errors and recalls.  T and VZ have made what I believe are bad deals with Apple.  It will take years to recover.  Investors must mix dividend earning with possible growth in income and stock price.  Retirees, don't risk you entire investment for a small gain.

[BRIEFING.COM] The S&P 500 (-0.1%) continues hovering right below its flat line with heavily-weighted sectors like financials (-0.2%), industrials (-0.1%), and technology (-0.5%) pressuring the broader market.

On the upside, countercyclical telecom services (+0.6%) and utilities (+0.7%) sport solid gains, but the two groups carry little influence over the broader market since they represent just 5.4% of the entire S&P 500. Meanwhile, the top-weighted sector-technology-accounts ... More
