Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks For Your Portfolio To Hit New Highs

Back in the fall of 2007, when the Dow Jones and S&P 500 established new highs, media trucks located outside the New York Stock Exchange were five deep, champagne corks were bursting all around, drinks were on the house at Harry’s and price was no object at the Peter Lugar Steakhouse. Oh, how times have changed. The Dow has set a string of new highs, and the S&P 500 is within a whisker of doing the same … but this time around, no media trucks. So what’s the deal? Shouldn’t we all be whooping it up?

Well, this time around doesn’t feel the same. I have neighbors with families that are struggling like never before, and I’m sure you do, too. The “Great Recession” is still very real to millions of Americans, and the new high for the Dow has not just caught a lot of people off guard, it almost seems out of place. Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t think so. It’s great news that Americans — those who didn’t sell at the 2007 highs and buy at the 2009 lows — are back to the flat line and have regained their once lost wealth. But do you honestly know anyone who didn’t undergo drastic portfolio upheaval in the past five years? I don’t. Let it be known that it’s been a grueling five years trying to get back to the flat line.
