Dividends4Life: 5 Dividend Stocks that Powered Through the Financial Crisis

The following five dividend stocks grew sales, GAAP earnings per share, and free cash flow during the 2008-09 financial crisis, allowing them to raise their dividends and outperform the S&P 500 by more than 25% in 2008. With global economies facing increased uncertainty and stock markets showing higher volatility in recent weeks, maintaining a dividend portfolio that provides safe income and capital preservation in down markets is more important than ever.

The five dividend stocks that breezed through the great recession are Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), Church & Dwight (CHD), Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA) (NASDAQ:CMCSK) Corporation (CMCSA), Rollins, Inc. (ROL), and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT). WMT has even increased its dividend for more than 25 consecutive years, making it one of the 52 dividend aristocrats. Whether China’s economy slows down or developed markets begin to roll over, these five dividend stocks have demonstrated durability throughout the toughest of times.
