Dividends4Life: 7 Best Dividend Stocks for a Rocky Market Read

7 Best Dividend Stocks for a Rocky Market Read

Posted by D4L | Saturday, April 23, 2016 | | 0 comments »

With stocks slumping over the past year and the market gyrating wildly so far in 2016, it looks like a good time to settle down with solid, dividend-paying stocks. If share prices resume their slide, dividends can provide some income to cushion the losses. And small but regular dividend payments can add up to big gains over time. Historically, dividends have generated about 40% of the market’s total returns (the rest has come from price gains). Moreover, dividend payers tend to lose less than nonpayers during downturns and vault ahead of the broader market over long stretches.

We chose five firms that are steadily boosting earnings and dividends along the way, measures that should help lift their stock prices, along with two high-yield stocks that seem worth the extra risk: AT&T (T), Automatic Data Processing (ADP), Cisco Systems (CSCO), Kraft Heinz (KHC), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Pfizer (PFE) and Welltower (HCN).
