5 Buy And Hold Forever Dividend Stocks With Initial Yields Over 3%

Whether you look back to the European debt crisis of 2011 or the mortgage meltdown of 2008, long-term investors with a focus on high-quality stocks are nearly always made whole — and often come out significantly ahead on a total-return basis.


Particularly if you’re at or near retirement and focusing on income, you need to think about where stocks are going to be in a decade or two instead of a month or two.

That’s because hiding out in cash doesn’t give you much to live on, while long-term bond funds may expose you to considerable interest-rate risks.

The answer for many investors, then, is to rely on stable dividend payers that have strong operations that enable them to weather anything the market throws their way and sustain their dividends even during a downturn. Here are five such “forever stocks” I think investors should consider. 

Each of the results pay a minimum dividend yield of more than 3 percent. It's important not to count on stocks that start with 1 percent.

These are the results:
