NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- After budget troubles in Europe sparked some gut-wrenching moves in the market over the last few weeks, many investors may be looking for a safe place to hunker down and hide. And in times of trouble, there are fewer equities that are more attractive than low-risk, high-yield dividend stocks.These blue chips not only have the staying power and stable share price that make them good long-term investments, they have a history of strong dividend growth and high dividend yields that mean a regular paycheck. Rather than chase down a stock that will jump in share price, why not stick with a steady and reliable large-cap stock that regularly pays a hefty dividend?
