This 5.8% Hyper-Yield Dividend Stock Is Great for Retirees

This 5.8% Hyper-Yield Dividend Stock Is Great for Retirees

Pharmacy giant Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ: WBA) has paid shareholders for a long, long time; it's a Dividend Aristocrat -- and nearly a Dividend King -- with 47 years of steady dividend growth. The facts show strong evidence that investors, especially retirees, can buy Walgreens in confidence and continue cashing those generous dividend checks. Walgreens has a long history as a pharmacy store chain with roughly 8,900 retail locations across the United States.
