Down Market=Opportunities

With uncertainty still looming over this market, there is good reason to be cautious; but this is also a great opportunity to start building or continue adding to your positions in defensive and/or high dividend yielding stocks. I am going to name my favorite defensive/dividend plays, all of which have increased their dividend within the past year.

1. Altria (MO) $19.96/share, Div Yield: 7.01%
2. Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS) $37.79/share, Div Yield: 6.20%
3. Home Depot (HD) $28.63/share, Div Yield: 3.30%
4. Eli Lilly (LLY) $33.75/share, Div Yield: 5.81%
5. Magellan Midstream Part. (MMP) $46.19/share, Div Yield: 6.24%
6. Waste Management (WM) $31.46/share, Div Yield: 4.01%
7. Procter & Gamble (PG) $60.32/share, Div Yield: 3.19%
8. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) $59.24/share, Div Yield: 3.65%
9. Verizon (VZ) $28.62/share, Div Yield: 6.64%
