It's easy to be wary of dividend stocks right now. Not only are low interest rates being reflected by relatively low dividend yields, any rate increase would work against dividend stock prices. And there's really nowhere for interest rates to go from here except up.
There are some resilient stocks, however, with yields that remain too high and valuations that remain too low to continue ignoring. AT&T (NYSE: T), KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY), and LyondellBasell Industries (NYSE: LYB) are among the best names that fall into this category right now.
