8 Top Dividend Stocks I Like In This Capital Market Environment

While I made my daily research, there came a lot of interesting stocks on my screen.
Most of them offer a great opportunity but they still have a risk.

I personally look for stocks with a 10+ billion market cap as well as a P/E ratio of less than 20 combined with a 5+ percent mid-term earnings growth.

Below are eight stocks with solid fundamentals and a good long-term dividend growth history that could be helpful for your own asset allocation. My favorite industries are telecoms and insurer.

  1. Great defensive stock list in these markets! I too was looking into blackrock this week. Definatley worth a solid look. Still many people with bloated mutual fund holdings will transfer over to ETF,s in the future where blackrock is sitting pretty.

  2. Great list of proven dividend payers. All 8 companies have long track records of dividend growth and should continue to reward its shareholders nicely. Personally, I like ACE, BLK and CB at current valuations. Thanks for sharing. AFFJ
