7 Low-Risk, High-Yield Dividend Stocks

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?

If you're an income-oriented investor looking for high dividend yields and low risk stocks to fill out your portfolio and add some stability, you're in luck. Our InvestorPlace experts have handpicked seven great stocks to buy right now. Here they are.
