For much of 2022 and 2023, investors could take shelter in dividend stocks. They were, as the saying goes, the best houses in a bad neighborhood (the equity markets). It’s not that the analysts loved these stocks, but they hated them less. That sentiment is changing which makes it a good time to look for strong buy dividend stocks.
That doesn’t mean it’s time to sound the all clear for stocks. There are any number of macroeconomic and geopolitical concerns that could derail investors. However, it’s important to invest in the market that is – and right now that means looking for strong buy dividend stocks. You’ll get stocks with potentially good upside and a dividend to protect you if that growth takes longer than you expect.
