Dividends4Life: 3 Top Dividend Stocks for Volatile Markets

3 Top Dividend Stocks for Volatile Markets

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, October 28, 2015 | | 0 comments »

Admittedly, there are a large number of high dividend-paying stocks out there with annual yields above 35% and 45%. But there is always a trade-off. High yields come with higher risk. On one hand, it might be tempting to get a 40% annual dividend; on the other, it might sting to see your initial investment evaporate. Buy-and-hold investors are patient, but that stretches it. If you’re looking for dividend stocks in this climate, focus on larger companies with dominant positions in stable sectors. As well as companies that can respond to market volatility. Better still; look for stocks that reward investors with long-term dividend growth and capital appreciation.

Don’t judge this company by its web site. American States Water Company (NYSE:AWR) provides water and electric services to residential, industrial, and other customers in the United States. The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) is a $195 billion behemoth. But its share price has taken a beating, down 18.5% year-to-date. That said; its share price is up 5.2% since the middle of September. Northwest Natural Gas Company (NYSE:NWN) provides natural gas to more than 700,000 commercial, industrial, and residential customers in western Oregon and southwestern Washington. It is the largest independent natural gas utility in the Pacific Northwest with $2.9 billion in assets.
