Your go to dividend stocks?


Looking at buying some long term dividend stocks. If you had 50k to invest and wanted to keep it liquid yet earning a return what would you choose?

Coke is around 2.75%.


AT&T is around 5.3%


Verizon @ 4.7%


Put 1/3 on each.

What's the MT opinion on MLP's? Many of them offer dividens around 10%. Most are in the energy business and have exposure to commodity prices. Some are heavier in energy transportation which should do better in a Stock up vs. Commodity down situation, MMLP comes to mind on this.

Read up on tax treatment of MLP's before making investment decision. Not appropriate for tax advantaged accounts. I have investments in three MLP's, all pipeline & storage. Have had for 5+ years and will more than likely have for 15+ more years.

Didn't know that. But after looking they can't be bought in IRA's. Or they can, but the dividends are taxes.

Generally has to do with larger investors and partnership income that a large investor would have to pay. This is based on their % ownership of the partnership. Also believe there is a IRS limit on the amount of L.P. income that can be earned in a tax advantage account. The really good thing is that once your cost basis is down to zero because of return-of-capital, leave in your estate and your heirs will receive the units at the stepped up basis.
