Doubling Down on Patience

By Roger S. Conrad on Aug. 30, 2013

Investors are dumping dividend-paying stocks of strong companies due to misplaced fears about interest rate sensitivity. That’s opening up new opportunities in our favorite stocks, but be patient with prices.

“Buy dividend paying stocks when interest rates are falling, and sell when they’re rising:” It’s always somewhat shocking to me when I hear investors repeat this bit of nonsense, and frankly sad when they tell me how they’ve acted on it.

The recent downside in many of the stocks I cover here is proof positive that more than a few people—institutions as well as individuals—are paying attention to this siren call. It’s hard to see what they’re buying as substitutes. But there’s little doubt they’re scared again, and they’re having an impact on near-term trading.
