Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks to Take Into 2014

Dividend Stocks to Take Into 2014

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 21, 2013 | | 0 comments »

As the back-half of 2013 gets underway, it is time for investors to position their portfolios for 2014. In addition to the usual full-year earnings releases in the first half of the year, a new Federal Reserve Chairman will be appointed to replace the outgoing Ben Bernanke. In light of the fragile state of the U.S. economy and the prospect of Federal Reserve tapering, investors need to be ready for anything. Below are three solid dividend stocks that will position investors for whatever may come in 2014.

Three solid dividends: CVS Caremark (NYSE: CVS), Walgreen (NYSE: WAG) and ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM). Dividend investors should not reach for yield; instead, they should look for strong companies that have a long history of paying a good dividend. CVS, Walgreen, and ExxonMobil fit that profile. Dividend stocks can make you rich. It's as simple as that. While they don't garner the notoriety of high-flying growth stocks, they're also less likely to crash and burn. And over the long term, the compounding effect of the quarterly payouts, as well as their growth, adds up faster than most investors imagine.
