Dividend Stocks For Safety-Conscious

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, June 05, 2012 | | 0 comments »

The bear market is back and Canadian investors have the claw marks to prove it. Fortunately, there is good news even during a rough patch like this. Lower prices can be an opportunity for bargain hunters. In fact, a bear market can be an excellent time to track down a few juicy dividend stocks while they’re on sale. To guide us in our hunt, let’s follow the path of conservative dividend investors – a group that has historically done quite well over the long haul.

Investors of this type tend to stick to larger companies because big guys tend to be more stable than small fry, which have the disconcerting habit of swooning after every economic twitch. When it comes to size, I think it’s good to employ a two-stage test. Start by looking for firms with market capitalizations in excess of $500-million, then search for those with revenues of $500-million or more. Each factor weeds out slightly different stocks and they work well in combination. For instance, by demanding large revenues you effectively eliminate many speculative junior mining concerns from consideration.
