Dividends4Life: Solid Dividend Stocks to Let You Sleep at Night

Noted economist Paul Samuelson once said, "Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas." Of course, that's doesn't mean investing can't be exciting. To the contrary, it's a great feeling to watch your due diligence pay off over time as an investment thesis comes to fruition. That said, it's a safe bet Samuelson would agree that your investments shouldn't keep you awake at night.

On one hand, some of us have no problem weathering the extreme ups and downs of more speculative, high-beta growth stocks. After all, with greater risk comes greater reward, right? On the other hand, other investors would rather put their money to work in larger, stronger, well-established companies. While the potential reward may not be as great, you can be sure your chances of losing a substantial sum of money are much lower. With that, here are three solid businesses with which any sleep-deprived investor might find relief: Costco (NASDAQ: COST), Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and Diageo (NYSE: DEO).
