7 Good Dividend Stock Opportunities In The Retail Sector

There’s really nothing better than finding solid dividend stocks on the cheap.

The stability offered by a stable income stream, coupled with attractive upside stemming from a low stock price, can provide investors with an extremely rare mix of safety and growth. But the problem is that these opportunities are few and far between. Why?

Well, it’s simple: investors love companies that pay consistently rising dividends so much that they’re hardly ever trading at cheap valuations.

Furthermore, it’s nearly impossible to just accidentally come across inexpensive dividend stocks. Unless you’re closely paying attention to the market on a day-to-day basis, you’ll simply never know when a solid dividend stock falls in price enough to enter “buy” territory.

Luckily for readers, monitoring the market for attractive dividend opportunities is all we do here at Income Investors. And you better believe we took notice when the retail sector plunged on Friday, taking down several interesting dividend stocks in the process.

These are the results I'm talking about...

  1. I currently have a position in 2 of these (WMT & TGT). Recently I added to my TGT position so that I could lower my cost basis. I will be looking into some of the other companies that you mentioned. Thanks for sharing.
