    7 Stocks to Beat the Market's Wild Swings

    A time-honored strategy for conservative investors is to focus on stocks with high dividend yields and a history of dividend increases. "Companies that consistently grow their dividends tend to be high-quality companies with the potential to withstand market turmoil, and they can still deliver strong risk-adjusted returns over time," according to ETF provider ProShares, as quoted by Barron's. Barron's found 53 stocks in the S&P 500 Index (SPX) that have increased their dividends in each of the last 25 years. Among the highest-yielding stocks in that group are: Kimberly-Clark Corp. ( KMB), 3M Co. ( MMM), Consolidated Edison Inc. ( ED), Cardinal Health Inc. ( CAH), Leggett & Platt Inc. ( LEG), PepsiCo Inc. ( PEP) and Federal Realty Investment Trust ( FRT).

    Consumer Stocks' Sell-Off Is a Flashback to Financial Crisis

    Consumer staple company stocks took a dive yesterday, inciting some analysts to draw parallels between this year’s market sell-off and that of the financial crisis that shook the global economy just 10 years ago. Consumer staples, supposed safe haven stocks in turbulent markets, declined by 4% last week, making it the third such decline in the past two months. Cappelleri illustrates the weakness in the sector by pointing to the Consumer Staples ETF ( XLP), which includes stocks like Procter & Gamble Co. ( PG), PepsiCo Inc. ( PEP), Colgate-Palmolive Co. ( CL), Philip Morris International Inc. ( PM), Kimberly-Clark Corp. ( KMB), and Mondelez International Inc. ( MDLZ), all of which have fallen more than the S&P 500 since the broader market sell-off first began near the end of January.

    ‘Amazon Effect’ Stings Consumer-Staples Stocks as Pricing Woes Mount

    Investors once attracted to the steady payouts of companies selling staples like breakfast cereal, toothpaste and razors are shopping elsewhere. A series of disappointing earnings reports from industry giants such as Philip Morris International Inc., Procter & Gamble Co. and Kimberly-Clark Corp. have sent consumer-goods shares tumbling in recent days—a sign that many investors remain skeptical of the companies’ ability to cope with rising costs, as well as to fend off online competitors such as Amazon.com Inc. The sector’s underperformance comes as a surprise to analysts who had expected signs of a pickup in inflation to drive investors into shares of businesses that sell household goods and basic necessities, products that consumers would typically be willing to buy even when rising prices crimp their spending elsewhere.
