Dividends4Life: Dividend stocks preferable to Treasuries

Dividend stocks preferable to Treasuries

In his latest commentary for the macroeconomic forecasting consultancy, economist Leigh Skene (pictured) argues that real interest rates in the US are likely to rise in the next few years and create problems for those who have piled into Treasuries when seeking safe havens from the eurozone debt crisis and fears over US growth.

“The bond market bubble that people talked about earlier this year has probably inflated to its maximum and may deflate as fast as the 2008 bubble,” the economist says. “Why own bonds when the dividend yield on the S&P 500 is only slightly less than the yield on 30-year Treasuries?”
