Dividends4Life: A Current Review Of Dividend Safety Superstars

One night I had the occasion to be watching Jim Cramer. On the night in question, Cramer was interviewing the CEO of Weyerhaeuser (WY). When the interview began, the right hand corner of the screen caught my eye. It showed the stock ticker and its gains and losses for key periods. In the case of WY, everything was in the red. The stock had lost money that day, that month, for 3 months, 1 year, 3 years, 5 years and even 10 years. I remember thinking to myself, buying that stock would be a real leap of faith. Then it dawned on me. Why not look for those stocks that were winners more often than they were losers. I chose the period 2002-2011 because it included two bear markets.

In Part One of this series, we looked at the safest of the safe. Now it's time we move on to our list of Level Two stocks and see how they fared. To qualify for Level Two, stocks must possess the following: Each must be a Dividend Champion, Challenger or Contender yielding 2% or more. Each must have incurred a loss less than the S&P 500 during 2008. Each must have incurred no more than three down years during the period 2002-2013. Please note that the above are minimum standards. Many of these stocks just missed Level One honors.
