Dividends4Life: 3 Low Beta Stocks to Reduce Volatility and Increase Income

When it comes to protecting to the downside, something not everyone considers when in the midst of a bull market, investors in dividend stocks need to be aware of the volatility of their stocks. Owning too many high-risk positions can create a scenario where your portfolio loses more than the S&P 500 index. To help prevent this, we suggest that investors consider a stock’s beta (a common measure of stock volatility) when purchasing a stock. The higher the beta, the more volatile it can be relative to the S&P 500 index, which means greater losses in a market downturn.

This article will examine three of our top-ranked low beta stocks that have relatively low volatility compared to the broader market. The names discussed here include: Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB), Conagra Brands (NYSE:CAG) and Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ). These three stocks also generate consistent growth on a yearly basis and pay a healthy and safe dividend.
