Dividends4Life: 9 Dividend Stocks To China-Proof Your Portfolio

9 Dividend Stocks To China-Proof Your Portfolio

Posted by D4L | Monday, February 01, 2016 | | 0 comments »

China’s financial grease fire has officially spread to American stocks. If your portfolio isn’t yet “China-proof” then you’d better protect yourself now. Sell your dividend-paying disasters and get your capital into issues that do pay yields but aren’t hooked on dragon dust. I get it – you probably didn’t think good ol’ U.S dividend-paying stocks would get crushed like this. They do outperform the market over time, after all.

There are three dividend-paying sectors that are doing just fine. China’s stock market could shut down for the rest of the year and it wouldn’t affect these issues one bit – or their dividends: Municipal “Muni” Bonds: A (Mostly) Tax-Free 3.8% to 6% - three funds are in positive territory for 2016, and they’ve whipped the S&P 500 over the last two years. The Nuveen Municipal Value Fund (NUV) is an unlevered fund paying 3.8%, while the BlackRock Municipal Target Term Trust (BTT) pays 4.4% and the Nuveen Municipal Opportunity Fund (NIO) pays 6% (both thanks to leverage). Self-Storage: 100%+ Dividend Growth in Five Years - Three of the largest public payers in the space – Public Storage (PSA), CubeSmart (CUBE), and Extra Space Storage (EXR) have increased their dividends by 112%, 200%, and 321% respectively over the last five years! REITs on the Right Side of the Boomer Demographic Shift - Healthcare REITs are uniquely positioned to take advantage of this demographic trend. In September, I mentioned three of them: Healthcare REIT (HCN), Ventas (VTR), and Healthcare Realty Trust (HR).
