Dividends4Life: Bunker-Worthy Dividend Stocks

Bunker-Worthy Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 14, 2013 | | 0 comments »

China is slowing down and battering emerging markets as its commodity demand cools. Europe remains mired in recession and debt fears. America’s economy is slogging along with persistently high unemployment and stagnant revenue at blue chips … not a whole lot to be cheery about. So now is the time to be defensive and look at bunker-worthy dividend plays that will keep stable in the event of a downturn, but won’t be left behind if the rally keeps running for a while. Think of them as non-perishable emergency supplies like water, canned food and batteries. Here are five dividend stocks to stock up on, just in case:

Big oil may not seem like the best bet if you want to avoid volatility, but geopolitical unrest and a “risk premium” for crude makes a pretty good floor in major oil stocks like Chevron (CVX). Clorox (CLX) is one of the most powerful consumer brands in the world, with a name that is synonymous with household bleach and cleaning products. Consolidated Edison (ED) hasn’t really gone anywhere since early 2012 as the market has gotten a bit more “risk on.” But investors in utility stocks like ConEd shouldn’t ever expect big fireworks and huge share-price appreciation. Telecom AT&T (T) is certainly not growing at a breakneck pace either, however the stability of this megacap company coupled with a robust dividend yield makes it very attractive to long-term investors. Universal Health Realty Trust (UHT) is a real estate investment trust that invests in hospitals, surgery centers, medical office buildings and other related businesses.
