Dividend Dazzlers

With the market losing ground, high dividend stocks with reasonable valuation could be a hiding place


If the world right now was a Mission Impossible movie, global stock markets would be the helpless victims, free falling from a helicopter thousands of feet above the ground. Caught in the crossfire of policies, regulation and geopolitics, they would await the invincible and elusive Ethan Hunt to show up and save some (and lose some). Unfortunately for the market, reality doesn’t offer that luxury. There’s neither a knight in shining armour, nor a sneaky well-trained spy who survives even after falling off helicopters, mountains and sky-high towers. But the villains are aplenty.
