Just last week, one of those Fools, pirnu, succinctly summed up the Deere bull case for our community: "All the research I've done into this stock has been favorable. It is a well-established brand in the US and seems to be growing in the international market. The recent decline seems to be more of a buying opportunity than a reason to sell."  

Dividend stocks can make you rich. It's as simple as that. While they don't garner the notoriety of high-flying growth stocks, they're also less likely to crash and burn. And over the long term, the compounding effect of the quarterly payouts, as well as their growth, adds up faster than most investors imagine. With this in mind, our analysts sat down to identify the absolute best of the best when it comes to rock-solid dividend stocks, drawing up a list in this free report of nine that fit the bill.
