Low interest rates may be good for dividend stocks

With near-zero interest rates likely to persist for two more years, some investors are bullish on gold and high-yielding stocks, while shares of some solid companies out of favor with the market are still relatively cheap, Barron's reported Sunday. In the third installment covering the magazine's 2012 investors roundtable, T. Rowe Price Chairman and investment chief Brian Rogers said he seeks companies that have performed well but are ignored, including JPMorgan Chase & Co, Emerson Electric Co, Ingersoll-Rand, Microsoft Corp, Juniper Networks and Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Abby Joseph Cohen, head of Goldman Sachs' Global Markets Institute, says investors should look for companies paying dividends and buying back stack, which boosts effective yields to 7 percent or 8 percent. She also forecasts a good but not great year for the U.S. economy, while global growth will slip as Europe retrenches and China slows. Her top picks included Exxon Mobil Corp, Boeing Co , Brazil's Embraer SA, American Express Co and Edwards Lifesciences Corp. Delphi Management founder Scott Black projects growth, not recession this year in the United States.
