3 Dividend Stocks that Prove Boring is Beautiful

Posted by D4L | Thursday, January 15, 2015 | | 0 comments »

One of the biggest mistakes investors make (especially the younger ones) is ignoring stocks they consider "boring." Oftentimes, these boring companies actually make some of the best possible investments, delivering consistent market-beating performance and low volatility, allowing you to sleep soundly at night, as you can see from the chart below.

We asked three of our analysts for their favorite "boring" stocks, and here is what they had to say - Selena Maranjian: Many of us would like to believe otherwise, because exciting, high-flying stocks are so much more fun to follow, but some of the best investments are boring stocks. Consider, for example, Waste Management (NYSE: WM). Patrick Morris: It doesn't get more boring than buildings, and that's why National Retail Properties (NYSE: NNN) is a compelling stock for anyone on the hunt for dividend income. Dan Caplinger: When I'm looking for boring stock ideas, the first place I look is my own pantry. Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) has a huge stable of brands that produce billion-dollar sales each and every year, including Gillette razors, Pampers diapers, and Crest toothpaste.
