Dividend Stocks For A Slow Growth Economy

Posted by D4L | Monday, August 01, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Large companies that pay dividends will lead North American stock markets over the next three to five years as government austerity limits economic growth, said Bruce Cooper, head of equities at TD Asset Management. International Business Machines Corp. (IBM), Kraft Foods Inc. (KFT), PepsiCo Inc. and Canadian Oil Sands Ltd. are among the best bets to outperform estimated returns of about 5 percent a year from the U.S. and Canadian stock markets, said Cooper, a vice chairman at the unit of Toronto-Dominion Bank that manages about C$190 billion ($200 billion).

“We could be in a low-growth environment for several years,” Cooper said in a telephone interview from Toronto. “If you can buy stocks that have dividend yields of 3, 4, 5, 6 percent and can deliver dividend growth, we think that’s a solid way for investors to protect themselves.” Economic growth in developed markets will remain slower than before the recession as governments in the U.S. and Europe cut spending to address their budget deficits, Cooper said.
