Safe Dividend Stocks for a Post-Obama

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, November 14, 2012 | 0 comments »

Same administration, same problems. Investors (especially retirees) still need income to live on, Treasuries aren’t cutting it and the fiscal cliff still looms large for dividend investors. What else is new? It just cements in my mind the value of high-yield stocks. The obvious winners for a second Obama term include healthcare, master limited partnerships, municipal bonds and corporate debt. A couple things come to mind about the macroeconomic picture. Higher taxes in one form or another are on the way — and with the Dow down 313 points yesterday, the market is sending a clear message: If we set aside business interests in favor of social interests, then capital formation, lending and GDP growth will be stifled.

Once the market prices in whatever compromise Congress settles on, the indices will then begin to trend higher based on earnings and future dividend increases, as has been the case for the past 50 years. Here are four names to buy on weakness to take advantage of that situation: Senior Housing Properties (NYSE:SNH), Teekay LNG Partners (NYSE:TGP), Dreyfus Strategic Municipals (NYSE:LEO) and Franklin Templeton Limited Duration Income Trust (NYSE:FTF).
