Dividends4Life: Stability, Growth, Income in Dividend Stocks

Stability, Growth, Income in Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Thursday, December 15, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Bob Shearer, portfolio manager of the BlackRock Equity Dividend Income Fund (MDDVX), urges income investors to look at dividend-paying stocks, which he says offer income that’s competitive with bonds plus growth bonds can’t offer, along with lower volatility than the broader stock market and attractive valuations. Here’s Shearer:

Our advice is to search for companies with solid franchises that are in a position to meet real, growing demand for their services. By focusing on companies with healthy balance sheets and a commitment to increasing their dividends, you can sleep a little better at night as an investor, while also collecting a growing stream of income — and that’s during a time when income is increasingly difficult to come by.
