Dividends4Life: 3 Crash-Resistant Dividend Stocks For 2017

3 Crash-Resistant Dividend Stocks For 2017

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, March 29, 2017 | | 0 comments »

I was having dinner with friends recently, and someone asked the question, "Stocks are expensive. How should I protect myself in case the market crashes? Should I short something, or maybe use options?" For most investors, an exotic strategy like one of these isn't necessary. Instead, you can protect yourself from a stock market correction or crash by keeping some defensive stocks in your portfolio. Here are three good examples you may want to consider.

The financial crisis left many investors with a lingering fear of bank stocks, and understandably so. However, not all bank stocks are the same. One that I bought specifically for its track record throughout tough times is Canada-based Toronto-Dominion Bank (NYSE:TD), which is better known simply as TD Bank. The first of two REITs in this discussion, Welltower (NYSE:HCN) is the largest real estate investment trust focused on healthcare properties. One of my favorite dividend stocks to own in good times and bad times is net-lease retail REIT Realty Income (NYSE:O).
