I'm just about at retirement so what I'm doing with my stock investments is to provide an income stream to supplement my retirement without touching the principal. So I'm consolidating/moving IRA's etc into a IRA Brokerage account. Not done yet, and started 6 weeks ago.

But yesterday we got our first dividends. About $850. We are on pace for about $1000 a month. The point is, following a dividend strategy can provide a very nice supplement to your retirement income without pulling any money out.
I'm not sure why anyone would object or take that badly. I think its good advice/experience to share for anyone that reads the title of this thread and thinks it might be worthy.
