    If you’re worried about rising interest rates then Invesco Dynamic Credit Opportunities, ticker (VTA), invests in below investment-grade floating rate bank loans. In other words, these are called senior loans.

    They’re bank loans that adjust their payouts based on prevailing interest rates, so if interest rates go up, these loans will pay higher dividends, so this is a good hedge if you are concerned about rising interest rates.

    Another one that’s really performed, and it’s paying a 6.9% yield right now, Guggenheim Strategic Opportunities, ticker (GOF), that’s actually Claymore Guggenheim, holds corporate and government backed, that it’s mostly investment-grade and it’s paying a 10.1% yield right now, which is pretty high. Those are three that I could recommend right now.

    In the following video, Dan Caplinger, The Motley Fool’s director of investment planning, goes through the three things to look for in strong dividend stocks. Dan notes that dividend yield is the first thing most investors look at and is in fact important, but counting too much on high-yielding stocks Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR  ) and Windstream (NASDAQ: WIN  ) can create big risks. Dan suggests also looking at dividend growth, with well-known companies Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG  ) and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO  ) having made annual dividend increases for decades and delivering increasing amounts of income to shareholders over time. Finally, Dan talks about the payout ratio and comparing earnings to dividends to make sure a company isn’t getting overextended in a way that could force it to make a dividend cut, as Cliffs Natural Resources (NYSE: CLF  ) did last year.

    While it may be melodramatic to say my following of Liquidmetal Technologies Inc.

Yours truly turned explicitly bullish on LQMT back on November 22nd, after the stock broke above a key falling resistance lines. Then, on January 14th, I made a point of saying the rally had run its course, and it was time to lock in your 47% gain on Liquidmetal Technologies and walk away… at least for a while.

    Well, I hate to be the one to say I told you so, but, I told you so. Back on November 22nd I told you the gain from Liquidmetal Technologies Inc. (OTCBB:LQMT) was no ordinary gain. It was a catalyst for a much bigger bullish move. See, with that day’s advance, LQMT hopped above a nagging resistance line. The end result was a stock that was not only proverbially free to move about the cabin, but a stock that had proven it had already established some upward momentum. Sure enough, Liquidmetal Technologies shares are up 47% since then. You’re welcome.
