2 Cheap Dividend Stocks You Can Buy Right Now

Dividend stocks are the cornerstone of many well-run retirement portfolios -- that's a fact. The reason is that dividends act as a beacon to investors, inviting them to take a deeper look into a company whose business model is so sound it can pay out a percentage of its annual profits on a regular basis to its investors. Further, dividends can provide a downside hedge in volatile and bear markets. Investors in dividend stocks tend to be more oriented toward the long term, which usually means far less day trading and volatility.

With that in mind, let's have a look at two cheap dividend stocks you should consider buying right now. Fifth Third Bancorp (NASDAQ: FITB) - We're more than five years removed from the Great Recession, but Wall Street and investors still aren't in a forgiving mood with banks, including Fifth Third Bancorp, a 1,300-branch operator in around a dozen U.S. states. Two Harbors Investment (NYSE: TWO) - Two Harbors is a mortgage real estate investment trust, or mREIT. As a REIT it's responsible for returning a minimum of 90% of its profits back to shareholders in the form of a dividend in return for paying less in taxes at the end of the year.
