Dividends4Life: 4 Very Safe Dividend Stocks to Buy to Ride Out the 2016 Political Cycle

With interest rates remaining low, and the odds for an interest rate hike in June only 10%, there is a good chance that the Federal Reserve will try to remain cautious until after the election. The probability of a hike in September is only 35%, so there is a fair chance they won’t raise until December, after things have been settled. We screened the Merrill Lynch research database for safe stocks rated Buy that pay solid dividends and that likely wouldn’t be affected regardless of who wins the election. We found four that make good sense for investors to consider now...

Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) is an energy sector play that the Merrill Lynch analysts are very positive on long-term, as the overall corporate strength of the massive integrated giant plays a significant part in the company’s usually solid earnings reporting pattern and in maintaining dividend coverage. Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is the third-largest food and beverage company in North America and the fifth-largest in the world, with eight $1 billion or more brands. Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG) is a solid consumer staples stock especially for conservative investors to consider. The company sells lots of run-of-the-mill household items that are essential for everyday life, and it is not content to rest on its laurels. PPL Corp. (NYSE: PPL) serves 321,000 natural gas and 397,000 electric customers in Louisville and 16 surrounding counties, and 543,000 customers in 77 Kentucky counties and five counties in Virginia.
