Dividends4Life: 5 Dividend Stocks to Buy in Case the Santa Claus Rally Doesn’t Come

It seems that investors may be pricing too much growth into stocks today. Those hoping that the gains could continue throughout the end of the year and into next maybe mistaken. The so-called Santa Claus rally may never come. That certainly was the case last year around this time. This is why dividend stocks could be best way to play the uncertainty. It takes a certain set of dividend stocks that have quality attributes to get the job done. Which ones fit the bill? Here are five dividend stocks that will help you get through the potential market malaise.

We all know the duck, but we really should get to know the parent firm behind the quack. That’s because Aflac (NYSE:AFL) is dividend stock royalty. When it comes to diversification of product, no one has industrial giant Illinois Tool Works (NYSE:ITW) beat. Finding dividend stocks among the retailers is rare, but Walmart (NYSE:WMT) truly is in a league of its own. Consumer staples can be a prime place to find conservative dividend stocks. Take McCormick (NYSE:MKC), for example. For those investors looking for a one-and-done solution to own quality dividend stocks, the ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats ETF (BATS:NOBL) could be a wonderful choice.
