The Dividend Aristocrats Look Attractive Right Now

(New York)

Dividend stocks usually don't fare as well in periods of rising yields, but guess what, yields have been largely paused for some time. Further, investors may be wise to stay away from tech for awhile as it seems the sector is going through a reckoning. Well, interestingly, the famed Dividend Aristocrats-a group of companies who have raised their dividends for 25 straight years-has just one tech company in it, ADP, the payroll processor, so it is a very good way to earn income and hideout from the tech turmoil. Furthermore, and somewhat surprisingly, the average P/E ratio of the group is 18.1x, below the S&P 500's average of 18.8x.

FINSUM : This seems like a nice stable group to buy into, and the ever rising dividends provide a nice cushion for any potential losses.
