With the VIX volatility index pushing towards record levels over the last month, long term investors have turned their attention to safe haven plays. Investors usually count on dividend paying stocks during hectic times in the market believing in the company's security and real earnings power. Additionally, when interest rates get as low as they currently are, the return on dividends can far exceed that of bonds.

Companies in the Oil & Gas Drilling & Exploration sector have posted surging top lines in recent quarters as oil prices remain high. Last week The International Energy Agency said that while oil demand is likely to slow over the next year, prices will remain high because of challenges facing the much-watched resumption of Libyan oil production.
