3 Dividend Stocks We Love

Posted by D4L | Monday, August 24, 2015 | | 0 comments »

High-quality dividend stocks are arguably the most effective investing vehicle for accumulating wealth over long time periods. Furthermore, as a group, they exhibit lower volatility than the broad market, which means they inflict a lower emotional toll on their shareholders. Have I got your attention? Then here are three of our analysts' favorite dividend stocks:

Alex Dumortier (Mead Johnson): At 1.80%, the dividend yield of Mead Johnson Nutrition Co (NYSE:MJN) is lower than that of the S&P 500, so if an above-market yield is an absolute requirement, this isn't the stock for you. Dan Caplinger (Altria): Tobacco giant Altria Group (NYSE:MO) is a controversial pick among many investors, with the idea of profiting from cigarette sales running afoul of some tenets of socially responsible investing. Brian Stoffel (Apple): I won't judge if you scoff at Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) 1.7% dividend yield. Compared to the S&P 500's current yield of about 2%, it looks puny. But there's a lot more strength in the company's payout than meets the eye.
