Utility stocks have historically been popular dividend stocks for retirement investors

Utility stocks include electric, gas, water and other provider companies. Utility equities often come as bonds since those companies have significant debts from the infrastructure needed. Therefore, Fed interest rates greatly affect the utility sector, which understandably prefers low interest rates. Utilities pay out dividends that have historically risen faster than inflation rates. So, utility stocks are often a decent choice for older or retired investors.
