With interest rates continuing to hover at historically low levels, investors looking for income are understandably frustrated. Perhaps it should come as no surprise, then, that more people are recommending dividend stocks as an alternative to bonds, CDs, or even savings accounts.

As such articles sometimes (but not always) point out, stocks are not bonds, and they’re sure as heck not CDs or savings accounts. Stocks have an entirely different risk profile and, no matter how high their yield, they’re not a reasonable replacement for fixed income investments or cash equivalents.
