Dividend Growth Stocks News

If you're worried about the election, you're not alone. According to one poll, nearly half of Americans said they aren't confident that the election will be carried out fairly. Uncertainty around the election has already been elevated by the pandemic and President Trump's casting doubt on mail-in ballots. With the news that the president has tested positive for the virus, that election-related uncertainty has now reached a fever pitch, potentially forcing a number of unprecedented situations on the country.

Investors should brace themselves for volatility around the election, as results may not come in immediately and President Trump's health will cloud the situation in the meantime. Though the stock market should brush off any noise around the election over the long term, the coming months could be stormy as investors face not just election uncertainty, but the risk of rising Covid infections as the weather turns colder and a slowing economic recovery that could lead to a W-shaped recession. Keep reading to see why Walmart (NYSE:WMT), Altria (NYSE:MO), and AT&T (NYSE:T) have what it takes to handle any election uncertainty, and have the strength to keep paying you dividends while they do it.
