Page 1 of 2

There is plenty of geopolitical and economic uncertainty present in the middle term. The military conflict in Syria is getting more complicated by the day and the situation in Egypt is far from reaching a stable equilibrium. If that weren´t enough, monetary policy in the US, decelerating growth in China and long-term structural problems in Europe can add some serious volatility on the economic front.

These are just a few examples about well-know risk factors to consider. The unavoidable truth is that we live in a world full of uncertainty where almost anything could happen, and some bad things will inevitably happen sooner or later. Considering this, it`s understandable to feel concerned about how different scenarios may affect your portfolio. After all, if you don`t take care of your financial future and the well being of your beloved ones, nobody else will.

The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG)

Just remember that trying to time the markets on a short-term basis is a loser´s game, especially when making investment decisions based on emotions like fear.

Still, if you are one of those people who believe in hoping for the best but preparing for the worst, here are three rock-solid dividend plays that are strong enough to protect your portfolio under the most terrifying scenarios.
