Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks For This Low Rate Environment

Dividend Stocks For This Low Rate Environment

Posted by D4L | Friday, October 21, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Right now, the Fed Funds Rate is targeted at between 0% and 0.25%. For savers, this means dismal yields on their cash products. Whether you are looking at online savings accounts or 5-year CDs, the result can be disheartening. Even though government figures insist that inflation is not a problem, the reality is that food and energy prices – which are more likely to impact you day to day – are rising and the low savings yields can’t keep pace.

Now might be the time look for solid stocks that can provide decent returns and weather the current situation. Stocks certainly have the potential to provide greater yields than cash. Plus, if you choose value stocks, or choose dividend stocks, you are choosing stocks considered to be less risky. Dividend stocks can even provide you with regular income that can more than make up for the low yields being paid on cash.
