Apparently, last week the job growth in US shown weakness and market speculate FED will be delaying the hike for this year. And this causes some rally for the stocks prices to go up.
However, we do not have a crystal ball to predict when will be the actual period for the rate hike. Nevertheless, for dividend Investors like us, we should not be too concern over the short term interest rates rises hence we should think about the long term instead. Which make more sense.
Therefore, buying good quality companies that pay dividend is a way to go. In any cases, should the market tend to tank during the rate hike, we are still able to collect our dividend as usual & at the same time buy more shares if the share price is fairly value or under value.
