These high-yielders have big and growing dividends, bargain valuations, and rising sales. They’re poised to hold their own in a meltdown, and when markets rise, their attractive payouts and cheap prices nicely set them up to outperform.
These stocks are perfectly positioned for whatever lies ahead: if the market tanks, they’ll likely trade flat, thanks to their cheap valuations (and sturdy dividends). And if it all turns out to be hype and the market keeps rolling higher? They’re poised to skyrocket while handing you a 7.1% average payout.
While I wouldn’t own each and every Dividend Aristocrat, a select few are actually truly worthy of the title. These are stocks that not only have storied histories, but more importantly bright futures. I’m talking about Amazon-proof business models and dividends that will keep climbing for years and decades to come.
