Dividends4Life: 7 Dividend Stocks to Buy Amid This Tough Market Environment

If it’s uncomfortable on Capitol Hill, it’s at least doubly so on Wall Street. Again, this is the reason why I’m bullish on dividend stocks to buy. If things go well, you have the potential for capital returns and passive income. If the markets take an unexpectedly negative turn, dividend-paying companies tend to ride out bearish cycles better than less-generous organizations. With this in mind, here are my ideas for dividend stocks to buy, ranging from safer options to speculative bets...

At only a 1.55% dividend yield, Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) doesn’t strike most people as a true passive-income opportunity. I’ll easily concede that Home Depot (NYSE:HD) is not an exciting name. As a ubiquitous consumer-staple name, HD often comes up as a defensive strategy. Take Kimberly Clark (NYSE:KMB) as an example. Among dividend stocks, AMC (NASDAQ:AMC) is a tough one to classify. As boring as it is, International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) paradoxically arouses controversy among investment-analysis circles. Consider National CineMedia (NASDAQ:NCMI) and its 8% dividend yield. I’ll end my list of dividend stocks to buy with my craziest idea: General Electric (NYSE:GE).
