Keep Targeting Dividends, Bond-Like Stocks

Posted by D4L | Sunday, October 07, 2012 | | 0 comments »

In its quarterly outlook briefing Tuesday, Barclays says investors should keep looking for stocks that exhibit bond-like characteristics – namely defensive stocks, large caps and high dividend payers. “Dividend stocks are in the sweet spot for the move out the risk continuum,” says Barry Knapp, head of U.S. equity portfolio strategy at Barclays, “but we’re conscious of what’s gotten a little expensive.”

Knapp urges focus specifically on four defensive sectors: Healthcare, Utilities, Energy and Big Banks. Knapp notes that all of these sectors are beneficiaries of Federal Reserve policy and are leveraged to take advantage of domestic growth.
