Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks To Buy As Interest Rates Begin To Rise

For this week's live discussion at Inside the Market, we were joined by Kash Pashootan, vice-president and portfolio manager at First Avenue Advisory of Raymond James. He is a Chartered Investment Manager and has more than a decade experience in the financial services industry. Mr. Pashootan is a dividend investor with holdings in both U.S. and Canada, and lately has been gravitating to American equities.

Darcy Keith: I’d like to start off Kash with a general question on the outlook for dividend stocks right now. The last few weeks have been a bit of a wakeup call to investors who are heavily in dividend stocks and were thinking they were secure investments. The spike in bond yields hurt income-producing sectors in particular, and fixed income is starting to offer slightly better payouts than they have in some time. Do you feel dividend stocks are poised for a further short-term correction?
Kash Pashootan: Certainly some divident paying names will be more sensitive to + bond yields. ie. reits & telcos. The dividend names that the market believes are more of a yield play then growth story will be more sensitive... I do believe there will be continued volatility for this reits and telco div names as raising interest rates at this point are inevitable.
