On the lookout for safe dividends? (Who isn’t, right?)
These days, you generally have three options: large-cap stocks with long dividend histories, municipal bonds and US Treasuries.
Treasuries are considered the safest of that group, and large-cap stocks the riskiest, but they’re still much safer than plenty of other investments, such as small caps and junk bonds.
I’ll show you two low-risk investments that are great buys now in a moment. But first, I want to tell you why recent events have called the safety of some of the options I just named into question.
Let’s start by looking at the following chart:
“Safe” Assets Turn Volatile
First, note how the iShares S&P National AMT-Free Municipal Bond Fund (MUB), a good proxy for municipal bonds as a whole, is the least volatile of the three funds shown above. But right now, it faces a steep downturn relative to its earlier stability.

Best Safest Stocks To Watch Right Now: DarioHealth Corp. (DRIO)
- [By Jim Robertson]
On Tuesday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested going long small cap digital health (mHealth) stock DarioHealth Corp (NASDAQ: DRIO):
The entry here is rooted in the rebound’s “second wind,” which materialized today. You can see the late-Janaury/early-February rally was nice, but went too far, too fast. Sure enough, the profit-takers dug in. There weren’t a ton of profit-takers though – there was just a distinct lack of buyers.
