re: Sounds like you are putting all your eggs in one basket. I am in a similar situation in that I am living off my dividends from 20 stocks. No way would I put everything into one stock. If that one stock cuts or eliminates its dividend you would be hurting big time and probably looking to get back into the work force. If one stock of 20 cuts/eliminates, might hurt some but the overall plan would survive.

Concur. 2020 was quite <ahem> instructive.

If REITs are your thing then make it a basket of REITs.

And don't make them all the same (e.g. retail)

Diversify across industries/sectors.
