Investors in a defensive mood can always turn to dividend stock plays, writes Russ Koesterich. Indices of dividend stocks have volatility of just 80% or less than the S&P 500. And don't forget emerging markets, where dividend indices also exhibit lower volatility than the broad markets in which they reside.

    E.M.?
    Lower volatility?
    Dude, I really need some of whatever you are smokin'!

     

    This kind of garbage is typical from good old Russ.
    Russ, with all due respect,
    do you see any risk to the downside with all the fires burning over in the E.U.?
    Do you even remotely caution your clients to think of what would happen if we get a run on the Euro?

     

    Spain?
    Greece?
    The nightmare of this countries non existent tax policies that are going to blow up at the end of the year?

     

    Iran?
    Syria?
    North Korea?
    And you can in all good conscience tout risk assets here?
    And to take it to the 10th power of E.M. ?
    You sir are a danger to you clients wealth!
