Dividends4Life: 5 Very Safe Dividend Stocks to Buy Now and Hold Forever

With the markets warming up to the reality of a Donald Trump presidency and administration, some people have become nervous about dividend-paying stocks as they see higher interest rates and inflation ahead. While the bond proxy sectors like real estate investment trusts and utilities may hold less appeal as they are very slow growers, other sectors like consumer staples and telecoms still make sense since they can continue to grow market share. We screened the Merrill Lynch research database for stocks with the firms best volatility rating, and solid growing dividends that were rated Buy. We found five that growth and income investors could buy now, and put in their portfolios forever.

What investors will want to not ignore is that some of these are still well off of highs. The post-election rally has been targeting many infrastructure and higher interest rate winners, so some of these may be overlooked. AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) is the world’s largest provider of pay TV. The company has TV customers in the U.S. and 11 Latin American countries. The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO) is the world’s largest beverage company, refreshing consumers with more than 500 sparkling and still brands. GlaxoSmithKline PLC (NYSE: GSK) offers pharmaceutical products in the therapeutic areas. Royal Dutch Shell plc (NYSE: RDS-A) operates as an independent oil and gas company worldwide. The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG) is a solid consumer staples stock for conservative investors to consider.
