Dividends4Life: 3 Top Stocks for Risk-Averse Investor

3 Top Stocks for Risk-Averse Investor

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, April 06, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Let's face it, not everyone has the stomach to invest in individual stocks. The volatility of the market can prevent the risk-averse among us from getting a good night's sleep. Or, even worse, can cause us to make rash decisions about our money when it may not be the most prudent thing to do. For investors like these, rather than trying to chase those roller-coaster growth stocks, it's better to invest in solid, boring businesses that may not overwhelm with huge gains over a couple of weeks or months but may help to build a foundation for long-term wealth.

In this vein, we asked three of our contributors to highlight a stock that is better suited for low-risk investors, and here's what they had to say. Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) is one company that ought to be considered as a core holding in any long-term portfolio. Waste Management (NYSE:WM) has taken those competitive advantages and amplified them through a continuous effort to innovate and cut costs. PepsiCo (NYSE:PEP) is a market leader in nonalcoholic drinks and snacks. The company owns an enormously valuable portfolio, featuring 22 different brands making over $1 billion each in global revenue.
