6 Low Beta And High Yield Dividend Stock Ideas

Over the past months, I've published a lot of long-term orientated stock ideas on my blog. The aim was to get new and fresh ideas for our asset allocation and I generated tons of great articles but most of them have a clear focus on dividend growth.

This weekend, I've also looked at my dividend growth stock database but I still notice that yields are low and price ratios are very ambitious.

I decided to start a new screen which is not based on dividend growth but count in safe heaven criteria like the beta ratio and high market valuations.

I've attached 6 big names below with some great charts about the long-term yield, dividend and price developments.

The 6 top safe heaven stocks with yields above 3.5 percent are...
