SAFE DIVIDEND STOCKS

The Safe Dividend Stocks list contains the highest rated stocks for safety, making them more appropriate for investors concerned more with safe passive income and less with longer-term growth potential. These companies generally maintain low levels of debt, produce consistent free cash flow, generate moderate-to-high returns on equity, and have moderate-to-low payout ratios.
