Good Dividends are a safe bet

The current economic times  are worrying , yet there is gold among the rubble. While millionaires  and the rich are  or selling their  yachts ,  posh cars , and houses on ebay or then auctioning off their bfalling_moneyig boys toys . there is still hope  as buffets says “  The US government is doing the right thing to keep the economy in  check and running ok.

 

So where are the good stocks that can pay  dividends in even these troubled times.According to Lincoln indicators charts  > it shows us that  Agl Energy  and origin energy  are more conservative ways to invest  in the utilities and energy sectors.

Some of the companies giving good  dividends even in these troubled times   and ahead are listed below. But keep an eye out for reporting season which is near.

Some fully franked Dividends (100% ) giving companies

AGL ENERGY , ANZ , BHP BILLITON , WOOLWORTHS , WESTPAC , RIO TINTO , LEIGHTON HOLDINGS ,  CAOAL AND ALLIED INDUSTRIES

SOMECOMPANIES THAT ARE STILL GOOD THOUGH NOT GIVING FULLY FRANKED DIVIDENDS 

BILLABONG INTERNATIONAL , QBE , SONIC HEALTHCARE

Now is the right time to  have a second look at those stocks in your portfolio which have their dividend come down to ZERO .Its time to detach yourself from sentimental value and give the flick to  those  stingy companies  and embrace these new  companies  that are willing to share their profits even in tough times.

Warren buffet says the future is uncertain."There's no signs of any real bounce at all in anything to do with housing, retailing, all that sort of thing," said Buffett, 78, told Bloomberg Television

Berkshire Hathaway's first-quarter operating earnings declined to about $1.7 billion from about $1.9 billion in the year-ago period. Buffet stated that the firm's book value per share fell by 6% over last year, due mainly to the decline in the value of its investments. Gains and losses from derivatives are usually reflected in net income, which was not revealed.
