Safe Stocks to Invest In

Safe Stocks to Invest In

The stock market, no matter how steady it may seem today, can become volatile and dangerous tomorrow.
Investors who want to see a steady increase in return over time may not be as willing to throw in their lot
with high-risk stocks, even if the potential for a high return is admirable.

For those who have money to invest but don’t want to see their portfolio crash any time soon, here is a list
of safe stocks designed to steadily increase in value over the upcoming years.

Walt Disney

The entertainment giant always posts positive stock performance from year to year. It is one of the best, most
safest stocks to add to a stable portfolio. Disney owns the television network ABC, is set to release the next installment
in the blockbuster hit series “Star Wars” in 2015, and its amusement park success continues to grow. There is no
better stock when looking for a well-rounded company
with proven past, present and most certainly future success.

Coca-Cola

Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, Coca-Cola has shown tremendous growth over time. They have not reduced their dividend pay out in
over 25 years. For investors looking for high yield, dependable stocks, adding Coca-Cola to the portfolio is a smart move. In total,
Coca-Cola owns 22 different brands that are each responsible for generating over $1 billion in revenue every year. Even though
the stock market crashed by 38% in 2008, Coca-Cola only went down 28%, a 10% differential on the average stock. Even though it’s a
safer option, investors can still expect an overall gain of 10 to 12% per year.

General Mills

General Mills is known for being an essentially recession-resistant company. During the Great Recession of 2008, they actually increased
the value of their stock by 6.8%. The company has paid dividends to its investors for 116 years uninterrupted. They are recently deciding to
embrace natural food options, acquiring the organic-focused company Annie’s and marketing their Chex cereal as “gluten free.” Obtaining shares in
General Mills is a wise move for investors looking for dividends and future growth.

Kellogg’s

Sticking with the cereal industry, Kellogg’s is an up and coming competitor in the healthy eating arena. They are copying the tactics of General
Mills, focusing less on sugar-based products of old and catering to the health food craze currently in sync with consumers. They own the Bear Naked
brand, Kashi and are promoting their own healthy Special-K brand. Buying stock now is recommended, since their major business decision are expected to
seriously boost stock value in 2016. Right now Kellogg’s
provides a 3% dividend yield but that number is expected to rise to 5%.

Verizon

Lastly, now is the time to get on board with the wireless giant that has a 34% share in the wireless market. Offering an impressive 4.5% dividend
yield, Verizon is expected to grow in leaps and bounds in the coming years. They continue expanding wireless offerings and data packages, so stock holders
can expect to receive 12.5%
