7 Great Dividend Stocks to Buy For a Comfortable Retirement - 1 of 7

 

#1 - Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG)

Procter & Gamble logo

One of the best indicators of a strong dividend is a company’s history of increasing its payout. And Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) is among the best with a 59-year history of paying out a solid dividend.

This isn’t a stock that’s going to be confused with the high-flying growth stocks. However, during the pandemic, P&G proved its strength as a defensive stock when its products flew off supermarket shelves. That’s what investors are buying; a dividend stock that will be resilient in any economy, but particularly at times when the economy looks weak.

Investors could quibble about the company’s P/E ratio that is a bit elevated compared to its historical trend. However, as P/E stock has dropped from its 5-year high set late last year, the P/E ratio is drifting to be more in-line with its historical average. And currently, PG stock has a dividend yield of 2.49% and a payout ratio of 50.38%.
