7 Dividend Aristocrat to Buy for 2019

It’s not a perfect list but it should get the job down in a year that’s expected to see lots of volatility

We’re quickly approaching the end of 2018. That’s got most investors reminiscing about the year that was in the markets while also pondering which stocks to buy in the year ahead.

I know I sure am.

This year volatility returned to the markets making the average investor’s job picking winners that much more difficult.

Right now, it’s hard to say if 2018 will go down as a winning year for the markets or not. Case in point, S&P 500 stocks were up 5.1% year to date through November 30, while this would have been the lowest annual return since 2015, and the second worst over the past seven years, it still would’ve been positive. Just two sessions later, the S&P 500 is essentially flat on the year — up .16%.

One area that’s always going to attract investor interest are dividend stocks. That’s especially true when returns are meager like they were in 2018 and investors fear they will be again in 2019.

Dividend Aristocrats, those stocks increasing their annual payment for 25 consecutive years, are the cream of the crop for dividend investors and some of the best stocks to buy for 2019.

Currently, there are 53 Dividend Aristocrats in the S&P 500. Here are seven stocks to buy in 2019, all of them yielding at least 3% or more.
