Dividend Stocks for Uncertain Times

Posted by D4L | Monday, February 24, 2014 | | 0 comments »

he trend channel remains up for the S&P 500 SPDR (ARCA:SPY), but the lows of that channel are being tested and prior support has been broken. Caution is at minimum warranted, and given the strong prior run up, moving some funds into more conservative dividend paying utility stocks could prove prudent. Seeking income doesn't necessarily mean giving up potential upside if the stock market does move higher from here, as these stocks are showing some technically positive signals.

All paying greater than 3.5% dividend yields, these stocks generally attracts investors if the stock market falls, helping buoy the stock price. Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK) has a 4.46% dividend yield, and has also managed to make overall progress higher over the last five months, putting in higher swing highs and higher swing lows. Public Service Enterprise (NYSE:PEG) has a 4.35% dividend yield and has been moving predominantly sideways since June. American Electric Power (NYSE:AEP) boasts a 4.12% dividend yield and a currently climbing stock price. Dominion Resources (NYSE:D) has a 3.64% dividend yield, although the smaller yield can be attributed to the stock's strong performance of late, putting in a new 52-week high at $68.86 on February 3.
