Big, Safe Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Sunday, July 08, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Whether you're new to investing or have been at it for a lifetime, you need to understand the business models of the companies you invest in. Understanding exactly how a company makes money greatly reduces your overall investing risk. In that spirit, today I'm going to look at three companies with straightforward business models and strong dividends, focusing on companies that have been around awhile and look like they're going to stay around. Because what good is a great dividend if the company's not going to be there to pay it out?

Without further ado, then, here are three, big safe dividend stocks for the beginning investor, along with my personal favorite reasoned-out at the end: 1. Wells Fargo (NYS: WFC), 2. United Parcel Service (NYS: UPS) and 3. Unilever (NYS: UL).Who's better, who's best?
I'm going to go with Unilever here, and not just because the consumer-goods giant's dividend yield of 3.9% is the highest of the three.
