Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks to Buy for December

Dividend Stocks to Buy for December

Posted by D4L | Friday, December 02, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Despite a barrage of wicked headlines from Europe, domestic equities have held their ground remarkably well in recent weeks. The headline indices likely will make one more upside run in December, lifting the S&P 500 to 1,300 or a little higher. Meanwhile, the flow of events “over there” bears an eerie resemblance to America’s mortgage crisis as it unfolded in late 2007 and early 2008. Policymakers tried to stick one patch after another on the deflating balloon. None of the fixes worked for long. Ultimately, stock markets worldwide paid the price.

To cope with this high-risk environment, replace high-volatility stocks with safer dividend stocks. As a rule of thumb, any stock that fell more than 25% during the July/August swoon is a candidate for elimination. Replacements should throw off a dividend yield of at least 3%. Here are five such dividend stocks to buy now:

1. Clorox (NYSE:CLX)
2. Waste Management (NYSE:WM)
3. Kellogg (NYSE:K)
4. PepsiCo (NYSE:PEP)
5. Government Properties Income Trust (NYSE:GOV)
