George Foreman, an American Boxer said: “The question isn’t at what age I want to retire, it’s at what income.” But how do you create an income big enough in your portfolio to live off safely in the future? You see, one good way is to pick large, stable companies which are growing year after year.  And compared to bonds or fixed deposits, these companies help create a higher income in today’s low interest-rate environment. They not only grow dividends year after year but also grow in value over time.  Your money is not only safer this way, but what’s more important is these solid companies help you live on a passive income in retirement. Here are some of the biggest US companies you need to be looking at if you want to build and grow your wealth safely for retirement. Johnson & Johnson’s Ticker: (NYSE: JNJ) Market Cap:
