Dividend stocks are one of the best ways for long-term investors to play the market.
How so? Because dividend stocks provide investors with the extra benefit of returning profits on a regular basis – usually in the form of a quarterly or monthly dividend payment.
Investors can use dividend stocks as a stream of reliable income in their retirement, or they can reinvest their returns in the stock market to build their positions even faster.
My Dividend Grader tool has identified some A-rated dividend stocks to buy now. Any and all of these names would be solid choices for investors with a long-term horizon.
