Not a bad recommendation so far - when you consider the rest of the market, the fact that the stock price has held ($26.84 today) can be considered a gain against the rest of the market. But even with the dividend, you're still short of 9%. Danged if I know how to get there.

And with some folks in DC wanting to tax dividends at ordinary income rates, danged if I know what to do even worse.

Somebody, please, point me to the road.

An old thread... just an update. I sold my SBUX for around $24.50 a share earlier this year. The tax man cometh later.

Check out the Early Retirement Forum

I did not notice this thread when it came around the first time but it caught my eye today. I think 9% might be possible with a portfolio of income stocks. Another approach might be rental real estate - You buy it with your 100,000 and charge rent equal to 9% but that's a lot of "ifs."

Take a look at another Social Knowledge Forum listed at the bottom of the page. There are lots of good ideas at the Early Retirement & Financial Independence Community forum. Search for income investing, browse for related topics. As I said, 9% is probably possible, but not very likely and certainly not guaranteed principle.

There are some good fee only financial planners out there. Check out Home Page - NAPFA - The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors

There are also several good, straightforward radio talk shows that discuss income investing. One I listen to regularly is on WSB in Atlanta - you can stream it on the web from 9 - 11 (Eastern) on Sunday mornings AM750 and NOW 95.5FM News/Talk WSB on

Buy silver- or whats called 'slick silver'. The Rothchild family is busy buying up their gold.
And silver one day if we ever evolve into a cashless society...silver will still holds it's value. You could also go to Austrialia and go under ground and dig wonderful Opals out of the walls of your own dwelling and live like a KING!

I would look at a mix of Bond mutual funds. Possibly for the next few years add in an ETF for gold.
The bond funds should be a mix of international and US. It might not make 10% but it would get close.
