Dividend Stocks: The Place To Be

Posted by D4L | Sunday, November 04, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Okay, so this company has been around for quite a while and over its long history has been very successful: Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG). However, in recent history, Procter & Gamble has struggled mightily. Missing earnings expectations and layoffs were typically the headlines for this once proud company. The chart below shows how their return over the past 5 years has been decent when including dividends, but still left something to be desired.

There is no way to be sure that these slow and steady companies will always beat the S&P 500. But if you are looking to keep investing simple, while still being successful and increasing your odds of capital preservation to go along with the solid returns, then add these high-quality, high-dividend names to your portfolio. You'll sleep much better at night.
