Introduction: the need for safety
Globally, people remain scared. The market has moved out of panic mode and is rallying on the hope that we might be able to conquer the Covid-19 pandemic within the next few months.

Within a month or so we’ll see quarterly earnings pouring in, and we all expect them to be really bad.
Throughout the last month, my suggestion has been consistent: purchase high quality dividend stocks which can weather the pandemic, and which will do well after the crisis.
With that in mind I’ve been compiling multiples lists, looking at the market from different angles, running dozens of screeners in an attempt of seeing the bigger picture.
It is always a good idea for investors to buy high quality stocks rather than trash. After all, if you were to operate a business, would you rather run one which grows consistently, has a great balance sheet and can share returns with investors? Or would you rather own one which doesn’t make money, has a super leveraged balance sheet and dilutes shareholders at any opportunity?
The answer is obvious, but during bull markets, it would seem that for some, common sense runs away as fast as the prices of certain growth stocks.
When everything comes down, attitudes change. Just like when Icarus realized that he had burned his wings and that he should have flown further from the sun, investors turn to safety in times of panic.
