Also, I have never tried "Options". Is this a safe idea for one who only owns stocks?

Not unless you REALLY know what you're doing and then it's chancy.

Buying and selling (trading) stocks is like betting at the casino; lots of fun and excitement.

I prefer to buy dividend paying stocks, hold on to them and collect the dividends. Here's a list to choose from.

Below is a DRIP site that lists U.S. Companies with 25+ Straight Years Higher Dividends. DRIPing them is fun but not necessary.

Here are some of my favorites.

PNY (Been paying a dividend for over 25 years.)

WTR (A fast growing water utility.)

SO (Been paying a dividend for over 60 years.)

WRE (Been paying a dividend for 38 years.)
A REIT centered in Washington DC, it'll have renters as long as we have a government.
