7 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for 2016

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, December 08, 2015 | | 0 comments »

The best dividend stocks to buy right now are crucial parts of any investment portfolio. That’s because now is not a good time to be an income investor. Not with the yield on 10-year Treasuries at a meager 2.3%. Dividend stocks and high yield investments are the only way to get a good payday, then, and may be the only reliable source of income for investors in the near future. Sure, a December rate hike is widely anticipated, but how much do you think the Fed will crank rates up? 25 basis points? Big deal.

The sad truth for dividend stock investors is that you’ll either have to buy longer-term Treasuries, which still don’t pay but about 3% annually on the 30-year…or take a deep breath and hunt for high yield stocks in the equity market today. If you’re a patient investor looking for some safe investments and a modest stream of income, these are the stocks for you as you prepare for a continued low-interest-rate environment in 2016… and probably beyond: Cisco Systems (CSCO), Reynolds American (RAI), Paychex (PAYX), Chevron (CVX), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), HSBC (HSBC) and Merck (MRK).
