In other news, an Seeking Alpha contributor has shared their weekly top stock picks for a dividend portfolio. The goal of this portfolio is to collect weekly dividend checks that cover monthly expenses in retirement. The contributor highlights companies such as AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), which have a history of consistent dividend payments.

The contributor also notes the importance of considering the inflation rate when selecting dividend stocks. Inflation is an expansion in the supply of money - not a rise in prices. When an individual saves, what matters is saving purchasing power. Therefore, selecting stocks with a strong history of dividend growth can help offset the impact of inflation on retirement income.
