Dividends4Life: Safe Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

Safe Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

While the American economy remains robust, other headwinds are causing investors to panic. Causing perhaps the most concern, the new Federal Reserve Board Chair — Jerome Powell — seems inclined to keep hiking interest rates regardless of what markets do. That is in stark contrast to Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen, who would always back off whenever markets showed weakness. On top of that, trade war problems are continuing to mount. We’re seeing increasing cost pressures in this earnings season. Add it all up, and things are starting to get tense. That leaves investors wondering where they can go for safety.

People keep eating affordable food during hard times. Enter the multinational food giant Kraft Heinz (NYSE:KHC). Speaking of safe food holdings, let’s turn to Campbell Soup (NYSE:CPB). Pepsico (NYSE:PEP), the leader in snacks, consistently gets a high P/E ratio from the market, as investors acknowledge the stickiness of their brands with consumers. That brings us to PacWest Bancorp (NASDAQ:PACW), which offers a 5.7% dividend yield at the moment. Despite its jawdropping yield, New York Community Bancorp (NASDAQ:NYCB) is an even safer bank stock. Southern Co (NYSE:SO), as one of the highest-yielding large power utilities, checks the boxes for safe dividend stocks here. And Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) as the largest U.S. player is a true sleep-well-at-night stock.
