Sounds like you're buying!
Trouble is, the yields on these only run from about 2% to 5%
I'm trying to get the courage to rebuy Exxon (XOM) projected yield now over 10%. They could suspend that for a year or two and you'd still be ahead.

Dividend aristocrats with low debt would have been good to hold when this sell off started, although nothing has been left unscathed. When the recovery happens whether it's V shaped or U shaped, the high beta stocks and those most sold off will be the place to be.

Most of these, I wouldn't call "stocks", as in, regular C corp. I would stay far away from Simon, these are the mall people, and I would not have great confidence in their tenants right now. Great company, but, malls. Many REITs in here, too. I am definitely not feeling it with REITs right now, others may vary. I have O and keeping it.

I do own XOM and ABBV. And a lot of food companies and utilities. Debt is of course an even more serious issue now than right before "all of this".

Check out Dividend Champions, Challengers and Contenders at dripinvesting DOT org in the tools and info section. No problem with Aristocrats, but they must be in the SP 500, ignoring thousands of other great companies. The "CCC" list contains companies with streaks of dividend raises. The Champions are at least 25 years of increases. The workbook is packed with info.

Definitely, do your due diligence. Check your picks with ValueLine, Morningstar, etc.

Actually, many companies have not been pushed below their 52 week lows. It was a Very Up market so real "punishment" has not yet been meted out.

But, yeah, it's nice to have already them with divs reinvesting at lower prices.

Avoid insurance stocks. I guarantee their models do not take major, lethal, pandemics in account.
I agree. I'd be out if I weren't already in. I do expect they would write policies tightly to avoid pandemics, but, AFLAC sells critical illness insurance. That alone could be massive claims.

If you are a long term holder, keep holding. If you are a cyclical player, now is the time to sell - and has been for the last couple of months.

(Personal disclaimer - I am holding my long term dividend play, but I am short the Nasdaq 100 with my trading account.)
