Hey want to know how to get paid even in a down market? 

Here's a hint though: Own some dividend stocks. You essentially get paid to ride out a falling market. And then when the market finally turns around -- you get paid again!

Dividends often come from the old guard -- companies like JNJ (JNJ) , Colgate-Palmolive (CL) and Coca Cola (KO) -- because they're financially strong and actually have extra cash to give back to their shareholders. And also that often means they have less debt.

Which is exactly why you should consider owning some dividend paying stocks.

Sure they may lag when the markets on fire -- but they're probably going to outperform when the market is in the toilet.

These are the stocks that will help you sleep at night.
