10 Recession-Proof Dividend Stocks With High Yields To Beat The Market Over Years

Some companies, such as Dividend Aristocrats, actually perform well during bad times, while others are extremely affected. 

We strongly believe that stocks with a solid financial performance will do better in crises times.

Dividend Aristocrats are a major popular class of stocks that offer solid financials and most of them have outperformed the market in recent years. Dividend Aristocrats are stocks in the S&P 500 that have increased dividends every year for the past 25 straight years.

Today I like to introduce a couple of Dividend Aristocrats that might look good despite the high market valuation and could hedge you against an upcoming market storm. 

For sure, Dividend Aristocrats are also not safe when the markets under pressure but often they perform better. They have a lower beta ratio and could pay dividends.

Here are 10 high-quality dividend stocks that are bear market beaters and how they do it. Many of these blue-chip stocks are holdings in our Conservative Retirees dividend portfolio, which seeks to avoid dividend cuts, earn a 4% yield and preserve capital.

Here are the results...
