12 Attractive And Recession Proven Stocks With High Quality Dividends

Since major central banks began cutting interest rates in 2008, investors have been desperately searching for decent income from their investments. It's not easy.

Remember back when rates were at 5% when the financial crisis began, but within five months had shrunk to a record low of 0.5%. Most savings accounts still pay next to nothing, which is why dividend-paying equities remain incredibly popular.

A spectacular turnaround in corporate earnings post-2009 - the result of heavy cost-cutting and a return to economic growth in major global economies - left companies with pots of cash to fund bigger dividends.

That growth went unchecked until 2013 and then last year, when sectors such as oil ran into trouble. Others, like the mining industry, look shaky, too, raising some concern about the sustainability of payouts. It looks that it's only a question of time if they cut dividends but they are fighting tough against headwinds.

Attached you can find my latest stocks ideas that shift around those problems. Stocks with low debt, good earnings growth and a proven business model could stay dividends at current level or even hike them when the market gets more difficult.

Look at EMR. It's a great Dividend Aristocrat but the whole market environment is getting harder and harder but recently, they announced a small dividend hike of 1.06%.

These are much more examples. However, let's look at those stocks. Here are 12 stock ideas that might offer a great safeness in crises times and having a good or attractive valuation. Do you agree with me? Please let me know some of your thoughts by leaving a comment. Thank you.

Here are my results...
