4 Stocks You Should Prefer Government Bonds

Four Dividend Stocks safer than US Treasuries By Dividend Growth Investor. Over the past few weeks, financial markets have gotten concerned about the possibility that US congress would not raise the debt ceiling on US government debt. The implications range from credit downgrades on US Treasuries to de facto default by the US government if it chooses to delay payment of Social Security Benefits. Currently, US Treasuries are rated AAA, and are regarded as the safest investment instrument in the world. As a result, institutions and foreign governments hold trillions of dollars of this highly liquid and safe investment. The high budget deficits as well as the high level of US government debt however, have some experts doubting whether the status quo of US Treasuries as “safe investments” will change.

Here are four dividend growth stocks which have global operations that spot AAA ratings:



Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
Yield: 3.40%


Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM)
Yield: 2.30%


Automatic Data Processing (ADP)
Yield: 2.70%


Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)
Yield: 2.40%
