Forget Gold - Get These Stocks to Ride Out the Volatility

May 16, 2019

Richa Agarwal, Research analyst

We Indians are fond of gold.

It is passed from one generation to the next in the form of family heirlooms.

And the love for gold cuts across economic class barriers.

In fact, Indians see gold not just as an investment but as security against uncertain times.

This is because the value of gold is intrinsic to the metal itself and has remained resilient over long periods of time.

Richa Agarwal's #1 stock pick for 2021 is out

It is a little-known company that is now tapping into a Rs 4 trillion opportunity...

Setting it up to potentially deliver huge gains in the years to come.

Now, this stock has already started to move...

As the word spreads, there's a chance that this stock could move up rapidly.

Hence the urgency to act now...

Here are the full details of the company I'm talking about...

And sure, gold does have value as a hedge against volatility... but...

It is unfit for those who want to live off their assets.

Gold does not produce any income, which is ironic since it is touted as a stable currency. Every currency, stable or not could generate some sort of income return over a period of time, except gold.

It is true that investors could sell a chunk of their gold each year in order to meet their expenses, but this would leave investors with a diminishing amount of gold. The rate of decrease of the amount of gold holdings in your portfolio would depend on the fluctuations in the commodity markets.

If you are someone who would rather own an asset that could not only generate potential capital gains but also pay you to hold it your answer is not gold.

Dividend stocks are the answer.

According to Warren Buffett, well-established franchise-based businesses that operate on little or no investment but generate hordes of cash offer gold-like economic moats.

So, these are the kinds of businesses investors must latch on to.

The best dividend stocks have strong competitive advantages, which allow the companies to pass any cost increases to consumers, which lets us increase profits over time.

This leads to a higher dividend payment over time as well, which provides an inflation adjusted stream of income.

In other words, investors in solid dividend stocks do not have to sell off their holdings in order to meet expenses.

They could just pick the right dividend stocks, create a diversified dividend machine, and live off dividends. And if they choose to reinvest dividends, they can generate even more earnings through the power of compounding

Dividend paying stocks can provide solid hedges for volatile environments like the one we are currently in.

As I pointed out yesterday, even when stocks are going down, companies are set to pay a large proportion of their profits out as dividends as they declare their annual results.
