Dividends4Life: Protect Your Portfolio With These Dividend Growth Stocks

Growth is slowing in the U.S., Greece is on the verge of leaving the Euro, and some economists are now predicting a recession this year. Add to that the possibility of the Fed finally raising interest rates and we have a recipe for a potential plunge in corporate earnings and the stock market. I have been asked many times, where should I be invested if we do indeed have another recession? The easy answer used to be bonds. But with their paltry yields, this won't cut it for many investors.

We do have recent history to help guide us in terms of which companies can weather the storm of a recession and even keep their dividends growing. In the major downturn and recession of 2008-2009, there were actually several dividend growth stocks that increased their dividends. These companies generally are non-cyclical in nature and sell staple items that people will not give up even in a recession. I want to look at three such companies today. They are Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG), Kimberly-Clark (NYSE:KMB), and Altria (NYSE:MO).
