A while back I heard about a strategy that seemed quite resonable- so, I'd like to share it here, and see what the good FoolFolks think.It's about investing a part of ones post retirement savings in such a way as to receive monthly income from at least four different stocks which pay on alternate quarters and have histories of increasing their payouts. This would ideally call for four utility stocks. However, if we're assuming this position as an inflation adjustor (using dividend increases to offset inflation), then it's obvious that dividend jumps in utilities hardly keep up with inflation. Most other stocks in other catagories pay a much lower rate, thereby requiring a higher $amount of allocation.I'd be interested to read any modified, or alterred versions of this plan. Thanks.Eddie
