If you’ve looked at your 401k or brokerage account over the last few months, you may have become a bit seasick. As the markets have continued to rise, they have gotten much bumpier. Traders can no longer brush off tariff concerns, missed expectations or other geopolitical events. Because of this, many investors have started to flee toward safer assets like cash and Treasury bonds.
But investors with a big slog of dividend stocks in their portfolios may want to stand pat.
