Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks for an Overheated Market

Dividend Stocks for an Overheated Market

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, June 05, 2013 | | 0 comments »

The stock market has been on an absolute tear this year, and the bullishness surrounding the market continues to build. However, Bernanke's comments on Wednesday hit the market hard. If the jitters surrounding higher interest rates continue to spook the markets, a pullback could be coming. As such, we look at three stocks that make good investments even if we head into a pullback in the markets.

One of the major components of any sound buy-and-hold stock portfolio should be dividend yield. A strong dividend suggests financial stability and sufficient cash flow to maintain all business operations. Dividend yield will also ensure that the investor continues to earn income, even if stocks pull back a bit. These stocks should hold up better than the broader market index: Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG), Altria Group (NYSE: MO) and Kimberly-Clark Corporation (NYSE: KMB).
