    Hmm. I would have thought high divenend stocks, since they tend to be more stable and mature companies, would be something to purchase during a recession or time of economic uncertainy. When the economy is in a growth mode, I would pruchase a stock that has more potential and not worry about the income that dividends can provide.

    Depends where you are. For example a retired person will generally have a higher percent in fixed versus equity. Also there is a greater concern for preservation of capital rather than appreciation.

    But I think what was mentioned is appropriate as people are looking at those stable mature companies as an alternative to buying bonds at low rates. The Fed is pushing people into riskier assets to try and jumpstart the economy. Are they creating the next new bubble. Time will tell.
