Dividends4Life: Battered Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

Battered Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

Posted by D4L | Thursday, March 13, 2014 | | 1 comments »

Dividend stocks — particularly telecom companies and utilities — flourished during the past couple of years, thanks to the Fed’s low interest rate policies and an economy emerging from the Great Recession. But this quest for safety and high yield had a predictable consequence: Many of these stocks have been extremely overbought. For income investors — particularly those nearing retirement — dividend stocks are a valuable part of their portfolios. After all, they boast the double benefit not only of providing reliable payments that can be reinvested, but many top dividend stocks — particularly utilities — are mature and stable, they and offer a hedge of protection in times of volatility.

Some of the best bets now are reliable dividend stocks that have taken some lumps in the market in recent weeks. Here are five battered dividend stocks to buy now: AT&T (T) stock is down 9% since November 4. Chevron (CVX) is down 9% since Dec. 27. FirstEnergy (FE) is down 16% since Nov. 8. CVR Energy (CVI) stock is down 9% since Jan. 2. Consolidated Edison (ED) is down 3% since Nov. 6 and has a dividend yield of 4.6%.

    Hello D4L,
    I know you can't mention all of beaten up dividend stocks, but I am curious why you didn't mention Coca-Cola. Is there a particular reason?

    In regards to AT&T......now that the price war has broken out with VZ, don't you think their limited growth will lead to a long term struggle.
