Dividends4Life: 5 Big Dividend Stocks That LOVE Higher Interest Rates

Many high-yield dividend payers don’t care about the interest-rate boogeyman – and some actually outperform the market when the Fed lifts rates.

Invesco Trust for Investment Grade Municipals (NYSE:VGM) invests in 490 high-credit-quality municipal bonds that results in a yield of 5.9% currently.
