Forget Cash ISAs and buy-to-let. I’d buy FTSE 100 dividend stocks for a retirement income

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Generating a retirement income from FTSE 100 shares may seem to be a risky move at the present time. A number of large-cap stocks have postponed their dividends, while the challenging economic outlook could mean dividend growth is somewhat lacking in the coming months.However, with other options such as Cash ISAs and buy-to-let also facing difficult futures, FTSE 100 dividend stocks could be the best means of obtaining an inflation-beating income return from your retirement savings in the coming years.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…FTSE 100 dividend prospectsThe choice available for income investors within the FTSE 100 may be more limited than it was prior to the coronavirus pandemic. But there are still a number of companies that offer attractive returns. In fact, it’s possible to build a portfolio of stocks that currently yields in excess of 4%, or even 5%. With many companies currently trading on low valuations, investors may even be able to obtain higher yields over the medium term.Although dividend growth could be slow, or even non-existent, in the short run, the track record of the world economy suggests that a recovery is likely over the long run. Therefore, buying high-quality FTSE 100 businesses with affordable dividends and strong balance sheets could be a means of obtaining an inflation-beating rate of income growth as the world economy gradually returns to positive growth.FTSE 100 growth potentialAs well as offering a relatively attractive income return today, the FTSE 100 could deliver capital growth in the long run that makes it a worthwhile investment for individuals who aren’t yet close to retirement. They may be able to purchase large-cap shares while they trade on low valuations. Over time, they could recover as investor sentiment improves and their bottom lines move higher. This could lead to a larger nest egg that provides a more attractive passive income in older age.With the index having produced an annualised return of over 8% in its 36-year history, its long-term recovery potential from the current crisis certainly seems to be high. In fact, it’s successfully recovered from every one of its previous bear markets to produce new record highs. And a  similar outcome is highly likely after its current challenges.Relative appealOf course, Cash ISAs may offer greater security than FTSE 100 dividend stocks. However, the very low interest rates on offer mean that you require a large amount of capital to generate even a modest passive income.Buy-to-let investing, meanwhile, may be less attractive than it has been over the past decade. The prospect of slow rental growth, extended void periods and capital losses could mean that buying FTSE 100 dividend stocks is a more profitable and simpler strategy to generate a retirement nest egg, or to provide a passive income in older age. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

first_img Previous articleArmed raid at Raheen foodstoreNext article‘George Kimball touched the hearts of his Southill family’ – Fr Joe Young admin Print THE vacant Limerick County Golf Club at Ballyneety was hit by vandals this Monday night, resulting in extensive flood damage to the premises. Detectives at Roxboro Garda Station have launched an investigation after raiders ripped copper piping from the walls and ceilings of the now liquidated golf club. Shortly after 10.30pm on Monday, security staff disturbed the raiders who had gained entry and were attempting to take the copper piping and other materials.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The unoccupied building is just one of a number of closed premises throughout Limerick that have been targeted as raiders attempt to gather and sell on the materials scavenged from derelict or unoccupied sites.With NAMA having moved into a number of sites around the country, Limerick is no different to this latest upsurge in thefts and burglaries that are evident elsewhere.Limerick District Court has seen a number of such prosecutable cases where raiders have taken scaffolding from unfinished private housing estates, and gates from houses due for demolition under the regeneration scheme, with a view to selling it on.Gardai are advising that all such property should be secured and regularly checked.
