Fat Dividend Stocks for Lean Times

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

I'm certain that ten years from now, on the other side of the current eurozone debt crisis, higher demand and global scarcity will lead to higher prices for a wide range of commodities, such as corn and copper. If you've got a long-term perspective and can stand the current pain, I think betting on that long-term trend makes sense. But it doesn't make as much sense as betting on the long-term scarcity of income-producing assets with solid credit ratings.

Why start any kind of a portfolio, even a dividend portfolio, in this scary market? Because when stock prices are depressed, you can buy the most dividend for your investing buck. And the dividend bargains are even more attractive when you consider that many of the world's strongest currencies are either in countries near the eurozone—where stocks have taken a pounding due to the debt crisis—or in commodity economies where stocks have been hit hard by the strength of the US dollar and fears of a slowdown in China's economy.
