9 Safest Stocks That Offer Growth And Growing Yields

Dividends and safety are an excellent combination for long-term investors, and safe stocks with high dividends are the best kind of all. Unfortunately, many high-paying stocks are volatile and risky -- the exact opposite of what long-term investors want. 

To help you sort through all of your options, four of our contributors would like to tell you about dividend-paying dividend stocks that will let you sleep soundly at night.


My main criteria are the beta ratio. The financial market ratio compares the stock volatility with the broader market. Is the stock more volatile or risky, the ratio exceeds the magic number one.


Attached you will find a couple of stocks with the longest dividend growth history and lowest beta ratios on the market, a value below 0.50. Each of the presented stocks are had half of the market volatility.


These are the highest yielding results in detail...
