Fellow fools,

I know there's a lot of wisdom here, so I'd love it if one or more of you would help me with this question.

If I took all my 401k money and put it into dividend paying stocks, lets say equally in BP, KMI, O, STAG and VZ, I'd have an average yield of 4.77%, at todays market prices. If I pulled from that 2k per month, if everything stayed the same, my money would last until I was over 100. What's wrong with this strategy?

Thanks in advance,
GlidingMonkey
