5 Battered Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

Dividend stocks — particularly telecom companies and utilities — flourished during the past couple of years, thanks to the Fed’s low interest rate policies and an economy emerging from the Great Recession. But this quest for safety and high yield had a predictable consequence: Many of these stocks have been extremely overbought.
