The bear market is making retail and professional investors nervous, but the market will not be down forever.

However, the bear market creates opportunities for many to follow a dividend growth investing strategy. Similarly, investors seeking income from high-yield stocks are likely to buy too.

One stock that should be near the top of your list to buy is Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO), the networking giant. The company is now yielding 3.5%+, and the dividend continues to grow annually.
