Dividend Stocks for the Next 5 Years

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, April 23, 2013 | | 0 comments »

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to stock recommendations. In fact, an investor's time horizon alone often makes or breaks an investment. Fortunately, the exceptionally Foolish, long-term investor has the unique privilege of being able to focus on excellent businesses, and not having to bow to the unpredictable ups and downs that characterize the markets in the short term. Why? Because over the long haul, the market price typically follows business fundamentals.

If you count yourself among the Foolishly patient, here are two excellent dividend stocks for the next half-decade: Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL). It's tempting for income investors to emphasize high yields in their search for the best dividend stocks, but that's not always the best way to maximize payouts. A little bit of patience allows income investors to invest in premium-priced, first-class companies that might not have attractive dividend yields today, but are likely to have handsome yields in the future. Great companies with excellent economics enable these companies to repeatedly boost their dividends, often turning a once-small dividend yield into a handsome payout for investors who hold for the long haul.
