Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks That Are Rising In This Market

Dividend Growth Stocks News

When stocks go south, it's useful to see what's going north. An investor can get an idea of what's working under tough circumstances and perhaps get a few names worth further research. IBD did a screen of S&P 100 stocks that rose since the May 2 close. The general market came under pressure May 3 and shifted to correction the day after. The S&P 100 index is comprised of established companies, often large caps. This isn't a bad place to look for dividend stocks.

Only seven stocks in the S&P 100 have gained ground during the market decline. Five pay dividends. The five and their price gains during the market decline are: Allstate (ALL) up 5%, Walt Disney (DIS) up 4%, H.J. Heinz (HNZ) up 2.5%, News Corp. (NWSA) up 2% and Wal-Mart Stores (WMT).
