When it’s time to leave the working world, have your investment portfolio provide a regular income so you can enjoy a comfortable lifestyle for years to come. That means adding a few good dividend stocks to your portfolio to receive regular cash payments. It doesn’t mean there’s no risk involved, but dividend investors can sleep easier knowing that their stocks are relatively stable.

Our annual Retirement 100 list – Fall 2011 offers insight into Canada’s best income stocks, which we’re proud to say beat the markets’ overall returns since it was started in 2007. In fact, if you had invested in our All-Star stocks four years ago and reinvested the dividends, you would be richer by 39.2% right now.
