Over two years ago I started to think about income streams I'll want for retirement and undertook a plan of building a "starter" dividend portfolio in my Fidelity 401(k) account.
- Use 30% of my 401(k) balance to build my dividend portfolio with the anticipation of gaining greater knowledge and wisdom ahead of going "all in" down the road.
- Attempt to quickly build my portfolio with high-quality, high-yielding dividend companies and then reinvest those dividends - along with a percentage of my biweekly 401(k) contributions - to buy into high-quality companies that currently pay a decent dividend and have prospects for future dividend growth as well.
- The ultimate goal as a retiree is to utilize the dividend income while preserving as much of my 401(k) capital as possible.
