Sounds like you have a well thought out plan, Billiam. Good for you.With interest rates so low, some people put part of their reserve funds in dividend paying stocks. They are equities and somewhat more risky than say money markets or bonds, but yields of 3 to 5% are possible with stocks of good quality.The thought is that their nice yields should support their price if markets crash. Rising interest rates might hurt a bit, but the yield is still attractive compared to money markets--probably for years to come.
