Dividends4Life: Bear-Beating Dividend Stocks

Bear-Beating Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, August 09, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Protecting yourself from being mauled by a bear is easier said than done. So if avoidance isn’t an option it’s really all about mitigating the damage when you meet one and being opportunistic in your next life. I’ll cover both options here. In the bear-mitigation category we have an obvious choice these days and it comes in the form of relatively cheap, high-quality, dividend-paying stocks. Yes, I get that it’s not sexy, but neither is being mauled by a bear,

You don’t have to be a genius to see that names like PepsiCo (PEP), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Procter & Gamble (PG) are cheap today. At 3.2%-plus, dividend yields on all of these firms are well above the yield on 10-year Treasurys and are higher than the yield to maturity on their respective corporate bonds. That’s a rare thing. There are certainly select opportunities to spice things up a bit. In that category, global telecom giant Telefonica (TEF) — and it’s 10.4% current dividend yield — is an obvious choice.
