Dividends4Life: 2 Dividend Stocks to Buy as the Market Plunges

2 Dividend Stocks to Buy as the Market Plunges

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, September 15, 2015 | | 0 comments »

Investing in the stock market takes a lot of patience. Impatient investors often sell solid stocks during market downturns, then regret it a few months later when share prices bounce back to new highs. If that sounds like you, consider buying dependable dividend stocks to ride out the near-term volatility. Not only will dividend payments encourage you to hold a stock for years instead of weeks, they can serve as passive income or boost your stake through dividend reinvestment plans.

Today, we'll discuss two low-risk income stocks which are worth a look -- Reynolds American (NYSE:RAI) and Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ). Be aware that not all high-yield stocks are great long-term investments. If dividend payments exceed free cash flow or earnings for too long, the payout could be reduced. Other companies only have high yields due to huge declines in their stock prices, which could be caused by problems with their core businesses. But in my opinion, solid plays like Reynolds American and Verizon can help you ride out market turbulence, and refrain from prematurely selling your stocks.
