New rules are coming into effect this month that the author of today’s article states “will fundamentally change the way money market funds operate.” In light of these new rules – which are aimed at preventing runs on money market funds as happened in the 2008 financial crisis – the author looks at the case for investors moving their cash into internet savings accounts, concluding that these options “may offer the best combination of liquidity, safety and yield.” To read about why this may be the case, what some of the downsides of internet savings accounts are, and to learn more about the new money market fund rules taking effect, CLICK HERE.
The hunt for both yield and safety is the task undertaken by the author of today’s article. He highlights four quality dividend-paying (and dividend-growing!) stocks with high yields – averaging 4.9% – and good “Dividend Safety Scores”. To find out what these four stocks are – including two healthcare focused real estate investment trusts and a Dividend Aristocrat telecommunications giant – , as well as for an analysis of each and to learn more about Dividend Safety Scores, CLICK HERE.
