Dividends4Life: 7 Dividend Stocks For 2015

7 Dividend Stocks For 2015

Posted by D4L | Friday, February 06, 2015 | | 0 comments »

It's that time of year again. I'm going to suggest seven stocks for you to consider for 2015. Last year's list averaged a disappointing 6% return, far short of the S&P 500's 12% return for the year. My portfolio's returns were squashed by Meridian Bioscience's (NASDAQ:VIVO) 37% loss. The maker of medical diagnostic test kits ran into tough competition and the resulting price cuts depressed earnings. Another pick, natural gas pipeline operator Plains GP Holdings (NYSE:PAGP), got hit by the energy sector downturn and ended the year with a 1% loss.

I know that it's somewhat unfashionable, but this is a "buy and hold" portfolio; that is, these stocks are intended to be held until year's end. All are dividend payers. That way, if the market tanks, you'll still be collecting dividends while you wait for an upturn. Here's this year's list: Six Flags Entertainment (NYSE:SIX), Cinemark Holdings (CNK), Hospitality Properties Trust (NYSE:HPT), Macquarie Infrastructure Trust (NYSE:MIC), Physicians Realty Trust (NYSE:DOC), Tekla Life Sciences (NYSE:HQL) and Wells Fargo (WFC).
