We may have emerged from a bear market already but it would be pretty irresponsible of us not to prepare for more rough weather ahead. These two giants of the healthcare sector are about as reliable as businesses get. Here's why you can count on steadily growing dividend payments from these two healthcare stocks.

You've more than likely seen some of Abbott Laboratories' (NYSE: ABT) COVID-19 diagnostic products. If you've been having a hard time finding baby formula you're also aware of this company's nutrition business. What you probably don't know is that Abbott Laboratories recently paid its 394th consecutive quarterly dividend. The company's also raised the payout for 50 consecutive years. If you're willing to trade slower growth in the future for a higher yield in the present, consider Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ). With a AAA credit rating and a 60-year record of consecutive dividend raises, this healthcare conglomerate is a dividend investor's dream come true.

An 8.5% Yield With Room To Run

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 10, 2022 | 0 comments »

Last time some investors asked about the current opportunities in preferred shares. The preferred shares for mortgage REITs are looking great. Prices got hammered as credit spreads opened due to recessionary risk, but the risk to these mortgage REITs is much smaller than it was in the pandemic. What happened then? All of the preferred shares recovered to trade at least relatively close to $25.00. The ones that had paused dividends repaid all missing dividends and resumed normal payments. Today I want to share one of our latest trades.

On June 20th, 2022, we published an article detailing opportunities to swap between the preferred shares. About a week later, we followed our own article by swapping our AGNCP (AGNCP) for NLY-G. This move continues the sequence of trades between similar preferred shares. To put this in a sequence, we swapped 403 shares of AGNCP for 423 shares of NLY-G, then swapped those shares for 434 shares of AGNCM. We had another 1,185 shares of NLY-G that came from selling part of our position in NRZ. Those shares were also sold to buy more AGNCM.

Savvy investors know, though, that when the market crashes, the opportunity for real wealth creation is at hand. Not from shorting stocks, but because bull markets always follow bad times, and you now have the chance to buy good companies at discounted prices. Also, dividend-paying stocks help smooth over the harsh reality of those market downturns, which is why I look for those businesses that can weather both the highs and lows of the cycle with their dividends not only remaining intact but continuing to rise through it all. Here are a pair of stocks you can count on to make it through no matter the market, and to help you achieve a lifetime of income and wealth.

Because 3M (MMM) has been around for over 100 years, it has been through all types of markets and global macroeconomic and geopolitical events: depressions and recessions, world wars, global pandemics, and natural disasters. It may have gotten its start in mining, but today it's arguably best known as a maker of N95 masks and respirators. ou might not have even heard of Lancaster Colony (LANC -0.23%), which has only been around half as long as 3M and has a $3.6 billion market cap, which is but a fraction of the size of the household-name conglomerate. But what this company lacks in stature, it makes up for in financial prowess.

3 Dividend Stocks to Buy for a Bear Market

These five dividend stocks will provide a steady income stream throughout the fiscal year and beyond. Dividend stocks are a popular investment vehicle for individual investors that offers a steady income stream...

Stocks generally will offer the best cushion against inflation, especially the reliable high-yield dividend payers. First, stocks have a long-term history of showing gains despite nearer-term losses. And second, dividend stocks offer a steady income stream, that help to offset losses elsewhere. With this in mind, we've used TipRanks' database to pinpoint two of the market’s dividend champs, with long histories of keeping the payments reliable, and high yields that offer some chance to soften today’s inflationary environment. Let's take a closer look.

We’ll start with Viper Energy Partners (VNOM), one of the many mineral rights companies operating in the Texas oil patch. Specifically, Viper holds an asset portfolio with more than 26,000 net royalty acres, the lands where the company owns mineral rights and derives income from oil and gas drilling activities. The next high-yield dividend stock we're looking at is another mineral rights hydrocarbon player. Brigham Minerals (MNRL) owns assets in five major oil and gas basins which, together, make up some of North America’s richest energy production regions.
