Dividends4Life: 3 Consumer Staples Stocks to Buy to Beat the Market

3 Consumer Staples Stocks to Buy to Beat the Market

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, February 03, 2016 | | 1 comments »

China, the Federal Reserve and questionable fourth-quarter earnings have thrown a curveball to investors clamoring for a way to ease their portfolio’s pain. While the knee-jerk reaction may be to buy something that will snap back, investors in 2016 should KISS and make up — meaning, “keep it simple, stupid!” That’s right, simple and unsexy is what’s likely to help investors outpace the market in 2016 as questions about valuations and growth rates cast a haze over highfliers.

Notching the level of difficulty a little higher is the fact that correlations among the major indices and sectors are still on the decline, underscoring the fact that 2016 will remain a stock picker’s market. The best KISS stocks to buy right now are in the consumer staples sector, what with it’s relatively steady revenues and ample dividends. Here are three at the top of our list: Clorox Co (CLX), Procter & Gamble Co (PG) and Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. (DPS).

    I own 2 out of 3. The consumer staples are my favorite sector overall to invest long term. It may not have the most stellar growth but those dividends are as reliable and steady as they come for a sector.
