Dividends4Life: Safe Dividend Stocks for a Shaky Economy

Safe Dividend Stocks for a Shaky Economy

Posted by D4L | Friday, October 07, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Do you remember 2008? Wall Street is going crazy, we find out we're in the midst of a recession, and the Federal Reserve is forced to lower interest rates to practically zero and pump money into the economy alongside fiscal stimulus to avoid total economic doomsday. Nearly every pundit frets that zero percent interest and all that money printing would be hugely inflationary. Many announce that the Fed's "panic actions" would cause "Zimbabwe-style hyperinflation."

Take a deep breath. Three years later, none of that has happened. Periods of low inflation and low interest rates leave many investors scrambling for income, which makes dividends more attractive. In fact, interest rates are so low right now that the S&P 500 actually yields as much as 10-year U.S. Treasury bonds.
