Tuesday, 22 Dec 2009 | 4:49 PM ET

Dividend investing is considered a sound course in times of market turmoil. So what are the best dividend plays for investors in 2010? Dan Genter, president, chief executive and chief investment officer of RNC Genter Capital Management, shared his stock picks.

“You are going to see a shift" in people seeking dividend stocks, "and you’re seeing it already,” Genter told CNBC.

“It’s being driven by investors who are changing their risk profile.”

“As you go forward, you don’t have to give up appreciation when you go for a higher dividend,” he said. “You can still have the appreciation if you’re doing all your underlying fundamental analysis for the capital appreciation.”

“Healthy” Dividends:

Abbott Labs
