Dividend Stocks You Want In Your Portfolio

Posted by D4L | Sunday, August 04, 2013 | | 0 comments »

To help you out in your hunt for stable, long-term investments, we’re taking a look at a number of dividend stocks that meet a few important criteria you’d want for the long haul. They’re long-standing dividend payers (in fact, a minimum of 10 consecutive years of increases, not just payouts), they yield more than today’s 2.6% T-Note, and they’re not trading at a terribly frothy valuation (P/Es are capped at 20). Here are five that make the grade, listed by yield:

Air Products & Chemicals (APD) serves customers in the food, beverage, healthcare and energy industries, supplying gasses like helium, nitrogen and oxygen, as well as specialty products like epoxies and polyurethane adhesives. McDonald’s (MCD) is one of the most recognizable brands on the planet, and one of the most consistent dividend payers out there. Leggett & Platt (LEG), founded in 1883, designs, manufactures and sells engineered components for home and industrial use. ConocoPhillips (COP) is an “upstream” energy company, meaning it’s involved in the exploration and production of oil and natural gas. Lockheed Martin (LMT) is a defense industry giant, dealing primarily in security infrastructure and aerospace.
