Dividends4Life: 5 Dividend Stocks to Help You Through the Market’s Mayhem

The steady stream of payments from dividend stocks can act as some ballast in the rough seas. After all, if you’re already getting a 3 to 4% return in cash, market swings may not matter as much. Moreover, reinvested dividends can provide an extra boost when the markets return to gains once again. All in all, dividend stocks can be a portfolios best friend in markets like these. The question is which dividend stocks to buy. High yield isn’t everything. It takes a certain combination of payout growth and current yield that makes a dividend stock great. And with that, here are five dividend stocks that are perfect for the market’s current situation...

Simon Property Group (NYSE:SPG) is one of the largest mall operators around — with hundreds of properties across North America, Europe, and Asia. Monopolies are great for investors. And one of few legal monopolies left in the world happens to be the railroads. That’s great news for dividend stocks in the sector like Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP). A lot of ink has been spilled on the state of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), slowing iPhone sales and perhaps the lack of recent innovation at the company. Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) has now been paying a steady and increasing dividend for over 40 years. What global slowdown? That’s exactly what investors in United Technologies Corporation (NYSE:UTX) are asking themselves after the firm’s last results.
