I haven't been a buyer of individual stocks for several years, but use Exchange Traded Funds ETF's) in my practice. There are several ETF's comprised of high dividend stocks. Since my ETF selection for clients is based mostly on the price history of the various ETF's, I checked the charts of several of the biggest high dividend stock ETF's. The charts are inconclusive to slightly negative. They have not since early this year been subject to any major price declines even as most of the "experts" worry about interest rate increases. Logic says dividend paying stocks should be interest rate as well as stock market sensitive, going down in price as interest rates rise. But then, the equity markets are seldom "logical". If you are interested in this line of reasoning, the website www.etf.com can do a search of high dividend equity ETF's by using the search function on the lower right side of the etf.com home page. That will give you names and symbols. You can then do an internet search on the symbols to see which ones may interest you. Hope this has helped.
