9 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for Every Investor

Dividend stocks can offer another tool for investment success

No matter where we are in the economic cycle, it’s always good to remind ourselves of what worked and what didn’t. In 2017, Wall Street forecast a rough yea,r but quite the opposite happened. Benchmark indices hit all-time records, while investors ended up being upbeat about most sectors.

In 2018, the long-running bull market took a breather as investors switched from risk-on to risk-off.

This year so far has only been a little forgiving and that might not last, which is why I recommend that investors get selective. Fortunately, with dividend stocks, investors don’t have to feel pressured to always pick winners.

Although picking high-flying growth companies is a sexier endeavor, they aren’t always the smartest stocks to buy. With passive-income yielding firms, you get the potential to make capital gains and obtain  residual payouts to bolster your position. During a down period, dividends can also help you ride out the storm.

But don’t mistake benefiting from these yields as “boring” strategies. As with any asset class, you can dial up the risk for the chance of greater rewards.. No one knows your investment style better than you!

The following ideas are broken down into three sections: stable, mid-level and high-yield (speculative). Each section has something to offer, depending on how much risk you’re willing to take.
