Defensive Picks

More conservative investors who value both capital appreciation and preservation of capital might look to these stocks, which should be far less risky than most publicly traded companies. Firms on this list are enormous, with market capitalizations above $50 billion. On top of that, they have at least a 10-year streak of paying dividends without interruption, whether that be on a monthly, quarterly, semiannual or annual basis. Stocks with higher one-year returns will appear first. The payout ratio – the percentage of net income that’s used to pay dividends – must be below 85 percent as well.
