Stocks That Will Make You Richer [RIGHT NOW!!!]

Volatility tanking your portfolio?

Not if you’re following my advice and are focusing on select, high quality dividend-paying stocks.

Aside from rich dividend yields that pay you cash income while you’re waiting for markets to settle, they’re also some of the best performers during times of stock market weakness. Like right now…

The 42 out of the 53 dividend aristocrats, stocks that have raised their dividends for 25 or more years, actually increased in share value during the month of November.

That’s right!

79% of the dividend aristocrats went up, while the rest of the stock market was getting clobbered.

Here are some perfect examples:

  • AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV) up 18%
  • Franklin Resources (NYSE: BEN) up 10%
  • PepsiCo (NASDAQ: PEP) up 9%
  • Kimberly Clark (NYSE: KMB) up 9%
  • WW Grainger (NYSE: GWW) up 9.1%

Not only could you have bagged a fistful of dividend earnings, you could have made money in November while your friends were getting hammered.

That’s the type of success I love to talk about while rubbing elbows at holiday parties and family gatherings.

You will too!

The icing on the cake is U.S. companies are also returning money to shareholders in the form of stock buybacks.

Buybacks by the 500 companies of the S&P 500 hit $200 billion in the third quarter, a 56% year-over-year increase.

About the only thing I like better than a dividend payment showing up in my brokerage account is the news that the size of my dividend is getting bigger.

After all, who doesn’t like getting a raise?

And American companies are giving out a mountain of “raises” to their shareholders this year. In the third quarter of 2018 alone, U.S. companies paid out $120 billion in dividends, a 7.3%year-over-year increase.

These include companies like:

  • Nike (NYSE: NKE) increased by 10%
  • Automatic Data Processing (NASDAQ: ADP) increased by 14%
  • Snap On Tools (NYSE: SNA) increased by 15%
  • Tyson Foods (NUSE: TSN) increased  by 25%

Great right?

But you could get even fatter dividend payments if you expanded your horizons beyond the U.S. borders. I say that because the average dividend increase for the global market is 9.2%.

That’s 26% more than U.S. companies.

The Janus/Henderson Global Dividend Index,  the 1,200 largest companies in the world by market capitalization, paid out $354 billion of dividends in the third quarter.

“The outlook for dividends and income investors remains well underpinned. Dividends are flowing through from decent corporate profitability,” said Jane Shoemake of Janus Henderson.

In short, companies are making more money than ever and are passing on those profits to their investors.

And 2019 is expected to generate even fatter payouts.

Dividend-paying stocks aren’t only for widows and orphans.

They are perfect for anybody who enjoys cashing fat checks and doesn’t want their portfolio to get slaughtered when the stock market is struggling.

That’s the definition of a WIN-WIN!
