Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks To Calm A Nervous Investor

Dividend Stocks To Calm A Nervous Investor

Posted by D4L | Thursday, August 22, 2013 | | 0 comments »

As the economy continues to improve, it’s pretty clear that the Fed will curb its buying of securities to signal a change in interest rate policy. The very mention of this has caused Treasury yields to increase, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Although interest rates have risen lately, we shouldn’t project this trend to continue at the same rapid rate. I think the pace will slow, as the Fed takes specific action over the next several months.

You should look for dividend paying stocks that have a rising trend and the financial strength to make the increases without causing the company additional financial stress. In addition, I suggest you run any dividend stock candidate through my dividend integrity index concept on Forbes. It is a useful check to see if the dividend payout ratio is compatible with the rate of dividend increases. Here are several of my favorite portfolio holdings that are still attractive regardless of how high interest rates rise: People’s United Financial (PBCT), Tronox (TRONX) and Philip Morris International (COP).
