Dividends4Life: High Dividend Stocks Safe From Market Meltdowns

High Dividend Stocks Safe From Market Meltdowns

Posted by D4L | Thursday, November 27, 2014 | | 0 comments »

With the S&P 500 fighting its way back to 2,000, many investors out there are convinced that the worst of the selloff is over and that it’s smooth sailing from here into 2015. While that would certainly be nice, the bottom line is that the global economy is quite challenged right now with fears of a “triple-dip” recession in Europe, a China slowdown and general mayhem in the Middle East. The U.S. has indeed improved, and is looking strong. But you have to wonder how long stocks can keep this up when America is just about the only bright spot in the global economy right now.

Regardless of your definition of a crash or a correction or even a “dip,” the bottom line is that losing a big chunk of change in a downturn can have serious impacts on your investment portfolio. In many ways, limiting losses is just as important as setting yourself up for big profits. That’s especially true if you need or want an income stream via dividends. So to help you stay safe if a correction hits, here are five of my favorite crash-proof dividend stocks to consider right now: Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR), Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (TEVA), NuStar Energy L.P. (NS), Entergy Corporation (ETR) and HCP, Inc. (HCP).
