Dividends4Life: Buy the Dips: 3 of the Best Dividend Stocks Just Went On Sale

A number of factors have contributed to the Dow 30's decline, including fears of slowing economic growth in emerging markets and the U.S.; geopolitical uncertainty stemming from the Brexit vote; and oil's recent decline back to $40 a barrel.

1. Coca-Cola (KO) - This stock has lost 4.7% in the past five trading sessions. The catalyst for the downturn was the company's second-quarter earnings report. Although earnings per share came in ahead of expectations, sales fell 5%. 2. ExxonMobil (XOM) - Shares of ExxonMobil have declined 6.9% in the past five trading days. Investors are once again concerned about the price of oil, which recently fell back to $40 per barrel. 3. McDonald's (MCD) - The stock is down 7.4% in the past five trading days. The sell-off was sparked by the release of McDonald's second-quarter earnings, which showed that sales failed to meet analyst projections.
