Dividends4Life: 3 Good Dividend Stocks for a Rock-Solid Portfolio

3 Good Dividend Stocks for a Rock-Solid Portfolio

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, November 01, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Income investors look to dividend stocks not just for their regular cash payouts but also for their growth potential. The best dividend stocks provide stability to a portfolio while also retaining the opportunity to offer share-price appreciation as well. Below, we'll look at three dividend stocks that offer a combination of attractive traits that any investors can appreciate.

Until we build some sort of Star Trek-esque transporter, rail will continue to be the most cost-effective means to move goods and will be around for decades to come. That bodes very well for Canadian National Railway (NYSE:CNI) and its 20,000 route miles of track that touches ports on all three major coastlines in North America. Many investors are worried about how much longer the bull market in stocks can continue, and in the past, certain dividend stocks have stood out from the crowd in providing protection against market downturns. McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) is one of the best examples, because it was one of the few stocks that actually managed to gain ground during the terrible market year in 2008, when the S&P 500 fell by 37%. I have to admit I'm disgusted by what has happened with Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE:WFC), and I agree wholeheartedly with my colleague and banking expert John Maxfield, that the bank needs a change of leadership at the very top. But at the same time, I'm not selling my shares, and I don't think selling now makes sense.
