3 Dividend Aristocrats for the Long Term

- By Faisal Humayun

Overview

While I have mainly focused on the broad energy sector recently, it is critical to have a well diversified portfolio not only in terms of sectors, but also in terms of having growth and dividend stocks.

Currently, the broad markets look stretched so it might be a good time to shift to some quality dividend stocks with low betas. If markets do see a correction in the foreseeable future, these stocks are relatively insulated. Furthermore, these stocks have a track record of delivering good dividends even in challenging economic times.
