5 Long-Term Dividend Growth Stocks To Stay Hedged In A Market Correction

The market shows a clear signal that the interest rates should rise in the near future but what should this mean for your long-term orientated dividend growth stocks?

I believe that the high valuations must come down in some way. It could also be possible that the market prices stay stable due to a solid business growth and the high liquidity in the market. 


We still have dividend yields of more than 2 percent for the average market, that's a solid and defensible value during a market correction. What's your opinion about a rising interest rates? Should stocks fall or rise?

However, to stay productive, I've attached a few long-term orientated dividend growth stock ideas with low beta ratios and high dividend yields.

Each of them have raised dividends by more than five consecutive years and cover the market volatility with a beta ratio of less than 0.5.

These are the final criteria:
- Beta ratio below 0.5
- Market Cap over USD 10 billion
- Expected 5-Year earnings growth of more than 5 percent
- Forward P/E under 15

The Top 5 results are...
