Dividends4Life: 3 Worry-Free Dividend Stocks to Buy in an ‘Earnings Recession’

One thing I’ve learned about Wall Street in 40 years of investing: The trading crowd never runs out of subjects to worry about. Sometimes the worries are legitimate. Sometimes they’re just fluff — filler to keep the conversation going. For example, consider the recent fuss over some analysts’ forecast of an “earnings recession.” Mind you, almost nobody is calling for a real recession in the near future — a drop in the nation’s output of goods and services. A real recession would likely trigger a significant setback, perhaps 20% or more, for the marquee stock indexes.

Finding well-priced stocks to buy at today’s levels poses a stiffer challenge. Many companies on our recommended list have surged above our buy limits — a reason for caution in the near term. f you’re looking to put cash to work, stick with names that haven’t yet broken out on the upside, such as General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). In company news, healthcare real estate investment trust Ventas, Inc. (NYSE:VTR) jumped 5% on word that VTR will be buying hospital chain Ardent and spinning off Ventas’ nursing-home business.
