Blue Chips Paying 5%

This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series in which advisor Charly Travers and analyst Jason Moser discuss topics across the investing world.

Bonds are plain and simple a bad bet. They offer all the risk of inflation eroding an investor's purchasing power with no substantive yield to compensate for that risk. Investors seeking income to provide for living expenses have to look to high-quality equities. We recommend blue-chip companies that have the pricing power to keep up with inflation, which should lead to a dividend payout that rises over time.

If you're interested in some of these dividends on your quest for high-yielding stocks, The Motley Fool has compiled a special free report outlining our nine top, dependable, dividend-paying stocks. It's called "Secure Your Future With 9 Rock-Solid Dividend Stocks." You can access your complimentary copy today at no cost! Just click here to discover the winners we've picked.
