Top Dividend Stocks of 2013

Posted by D4L | Monday, January 07, 2013 | | 0 comments »

In the current economic times of record low interest rates and in many cases checking accounts yielding 0%, investors are left wondering where we can simply park our money and not fall victim to the dreaded I-word (inflation). High-quality dividend paying stocks seem at this time to be the best option, as two year treasury bonds yield essentially nothing nominally and negative real returns while an average S&P 500 stock yields approximately 2%.

Below are a few well-run dividend paying companies that investors may want to put on their radar to protect their investment capital and possibly keep them ahead of inflation: Fast food giant and world-renowned company McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD), Fellow fast food giant Yum! Brands (NYSE: YUM) and Consumer and personal products giant Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG).
