Dividends4Life: 7 Best Dividend Stocks for a Rocky Market

One knock on dividend stocks is that they'll falter if interest rates turn up. Stocks bought mainly for their payouts become less attractive than bonds as rates climb, the argument goes, so the share prices must come down to bring their yields closer in line with those of fixed-income investments. And high-yield stocks tend to be more sensitive to that effect. But with the economy looking feeble, rates aren't likely to rise much this year.

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).
