Volatile markets like today's are a good time to remind long-term investors of the virtues of big, stable dividend stocks like those found in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It's hard to beat blue-chip dividend stocks when it comes to long-term performance. Witness the highest-yielding Dow dividend stocks.
