The Best Insurance Dividend Stocks For 2017

The insurance industry has created many great fortunes. That's because it's slow changing and highly profitable. Investing in insurance stocks is how Shelby Davis made $900 million from $50,000 starting in his late 30s.

The Best Opportunities From The Retail Sector

Physical retailers took it on the chin last year. The retail industry is being disrupted at a rapid pace, due to a shift in consumer buying preferences.

This could set the stage for a retail rebound in 2017…or not?

With that in mind, the following 7 retail stocks are cheap, generate solid profits, and offer high dividend yields to boot.
