What Are the Best Stocks to Invest in?

Dividend stocks are a great investment. The dividend is proof that a company is actually making money. I look for companies that have regularly raised their dividend over an extended period of time. Dividend.com is a useful site that shows historical dividend payouts.

The value of a company is the present value of its future dividends. If a company goes bankrupt without ever paying a dividend, the return to investors is zero. Here’s a few of my favorite dividend paying stocks:

  • Procter & Gamble (PG)
  • Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
  • General Mills (GIS)
  • Heinz (HNZ)
  • AT&T (T)
