Dividend Stocks For Your Watch List

Amidst an overarching climate of uncertainty, John Buckingham of The Prudent Speculator sees a number of possible investing opportunities among the stocks that have performed the worst since July. While investors should remain cautious, Bucking urges his readers to keep their faith in equities.

“We’ve endured plenty of scary sell-offs in the 24+ years. Just last year, for example, stocks dropped 17% between April 23 and July 2, yet the S&P 500 still finished the year with a 15% total return. And who can forget the drama in March 2009 when the S&P 500 was in free fall, off 28% at its lowest point, only to end that tumultuous year with a 26% increase?” One reason to stick to stocks, particularly those that pay regular dividends, is the long-term returns of stocks relative to bonds. His Buckingham Portfolio boasts a dividend yield of 2.5%, which beats the 2.4% yield on the benchmark 10-year US Treasury.
