Low-Beta Dividend Stocks For Retirees

Posted by D4L | Friday, November 09, 2012 | | 0 comments »

High debt levels, stagnant employment, and the slow housing recovery will still be a reality tomorrow when we all wake up. Interest rates will remain near zero for the foreseeable future and income investors will have to continue to scramble for safe yield. We created a rating system that ranks over 700 U.S. dividend stocks on a monthly basis and Apple currently rates very highly. Our composite ratings are derived by ranking each stock based on 28 key fundamental and technical data points in five sub-rating categories: Risk-Reward Profile, Financial Stability, Dividend Track Record, Dividend Sustainability, and Relative Strength.

Based on our ratings, we recommend that retirees consider the following stocks for their portfolio (all of which have an overall Parsimony rating of at least 90 and a 5-year beta under 0.50): Abbott Laboratories (ABT), Altria Group (MO), General Mills (GIS), Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP) and McDonald's Corp (MCD).
