There’s no better time than now to invest in dividend stocks.

And some of the best dividend stocks that beat the S&P 500’s average yield of 2.00% can be found in the healthcare sector.

Global dividends fell by 12.2% in 2020 after the pandemic forced businesses and corporations to make a total of $220 billion in dividend cuts between the second and fourth quarters of 2020.

Here Are Three of My Favorite Dividend Plays - Including One with a 7.4% Yield

Our Shah Gilani calls this time "The Era of the Income-Challenged Investor."

And with good reason.

Fed policymakers just voted to keep benchmark short-term interest rates down near zero and they're likely to stay there until 2022.

In fact, the Fed's held rates so low for so long that there are no decent-yielding fixed-income investments.

And the stock market's no exception.

Thanks to the pandemic, 40 S&P 500 companies suspended dividends and another 18 cut them completely in the first five months of the year.

But that doesn't mean there aren't great dividend plays available.

Lots of companies pay fat dividends to their stockholders, earn plenty of money regularly to keep paying them, and offer a wealth-building "kicker" called appreciation.

Today, Shah's going to tell you about three of his favorites.

They'll add a nice income stream to your investments no matter where you are in your investment journey...

The Two Things to Do When the Dow Falls 500 Points

My colleague Keith Fitz-Gerald told you yesterday how we could see a 3% to 5% market drop as more coronavirus news comes out. The Dow's lost about 1.8% since Friday.

Usually this week we'd be diving into earnings-related profits – it's one of the biggest earnings weeks of the quarter.

But that's getting overshadowed by virus-related volatility.

When markets have big down days – when the Dow drops 500 points and the S&P drops 50, with reason to keep going – I think two things: 1) Where's safety? and 2) How do I trade it?

If you know how to answer both of those questions, you don't have to sweat market drops. In fact, you just use them to make money.
