Investors Look For Safety in Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Thursday, June 23, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Six weeks of dropping stock-market indices and dimming prospects for the global economy have investors looking for a safe harbor. That may very well be summed up in one word: dividends. More than in many years, especially since the Great Recession, dividend-yielding stocks are a crucial consideration for investors.

Dan Newhall, a principal in Vanguard's Portfolo Review Department, is among the overseers of the Vanguard Dividend Growth Fund(VDIGX_), which has $5.7 billion in assets. He says there has been "an incredible amount of interest in anything that is income-oriented." That's because a sluggish economy has produced slow inflation -- outside of energy and food prices, he says. Plus, Newhall says, investors have shied away from the equity market.
