5 Safe And Cheap Dividend Stocks To Invest (November 2019)

Markets have been on a tear lately, breezing past their previous all-time highs. The recent catalysts have been better than expected earnings season, good jobs report, latest rate-cut by the Feds, and optimism on the trade talks with China. It appears more likely now that we will have continued the market rally at least until year-end. But nothing is certain, as the earnings season is over for now, and the Fed may take a pause in its pursuit of lower interest rates. So, further progress may solely depend on the outcome of trade talks. Mind you, this is only phase 1 of trade talks with China, which leaves out the resolution of more contentious issues like intellectual property theft, forcible technology transfer, etc., to a later date, most likely after the 2020 elections.

We need to pay attention to the quality of companies that we buy and buy them when they are being offered relatively cheap. The markets may be expensive at a given point in time, but there always are some stocks that are being traded cheap in relation to their intrinsic valuation. And that's the focus of this series of articles.
