Dividends4Life: High Quality Dividend Stocks

High Quality Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 08, 2012 | | 0 comments »

It is generally believed that high quality stocks provide a cushion during market downturns. Standards and Poor’s has verified this belief in empirical research. Moreover, it has concluded that in the volatile markets, high quality stocks carry a decent premium relative to returns of lower quality issuers. The same holds true during the periods of widening credit spreads and steepening yield curves.

In the next several articles we look closely at high quality stocks that represent attractive income and value plays for prudent investors. We start with four industrial companies that have market capitalization above $7 billion and an average dividend yield of 2.6%: Eaton Corporation (NYSE:ETN), Rockwell Collins Inc. (NYSE:COL), Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP) and CH Robinson Worldwide Inc. (NYSE:CHRW).
