Dividends4Life: Income Investing: 3 Dividend Stocks I’d Buy with $5,000

You can’t beat dividend stocks. While share prices are wild, dividends are like the German trains of finance. They almost always arrive on time, regardless of what the market is doing. As a new investor, you could do worse than dividend stocks. But sifting through hundreds of businesses is daunting if you’re just getting started. To help you get going with income investing, I’ve highlighted three of my favorite names. Here are three dividend stocks I’d consider buying if I were investing my first $5,000.

Enbridge Inc (NYSE:ENB) is in the oil business, but this isn’t your typical energy stock. Enbridge owns pipelines, terminals, and storage facilities across the continent. In exchange for shipping products like oil and gas, the company charges a fee. If you want to wow folks at a cocktail party, then Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P. (NYSE:BIP) is not for you. But if you like good, old-fashioned dividends, then a stock like this one will do just fine. Brookfield owns railroads, toll roads, and other infrastructure properties around the world. Realty Income Corp (NYSE:O) gives you the benefits of owning real estate without being a landlord. Realty’s empire totals some 5,300 properties totaling more than 70 million square feet. Of this, more than 98% is currently occupied.
