Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks For The Conservative Investor

Dividend investing is difficult. It is simple to go to the market and pick the stocks with the highest yield, but this strategy is fraught with danger, as those high yield figures could indicate the market's lack of faith in the company to maintain its payout. So in this four part series I am going to pitch several stocks that meet the criteria for several different styles of dividend investing.

My focus will first be on the conservative dividend investor, who is looking for safety and stability from a buy-and-hold dividend stock that offers a payout above the market average and inflation. I believe the two best contenders for the conservative dividend investor's portfolio are Urstadt Biddle Properties (NYSE: UBA), currently offering a 4.5% yield, and AT&T (NYSE: T), currently offering a 4.9% yield.
