Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks the Market Left Behind

Dividend Stocks the Market Left Behind

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 25, 2012 | | 0 comments »

It’s starting to sound like a broken record — the uncertain U.S. economy, the slowdown in China and, of course, the good ol’ eurozone. Nothing’s a sure bet right now, and so, investors have been all over dividend stocks. The proof is in the pudding: While the S&P 500 is in the red about 1% in the past three months, numerous telecoms, utility and tobacco stocks have been marking new high territory. Or look at ETFs: The iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend Index (NYSE:DVY) is up 3%, and the popular Treasury fund iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (NYSE:TLT) is up almost 11%.

People aren’t just running to safety — they’re sprinting. So it’s some wonder, then, that a number of stocks with nice dividends — including some truly defensive names — haven’t fared nearly as well. Here’s a look at 10 dividend stocks that the market has left behind: McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD), General Dynamics (NYSE:GD), Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG), Best Buy (NYSE:BBY), Kellogg (NYSE:K), GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE:GSK), Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT), Walgreen (NYSE:WAG), AK Steel (NYSE:AKS), ConAgra (NYSE:CAG) and Taiwan Semiconductor (NYSE:TSM).
