It seems that nearly every day the stock market is reacting to tweets ornewsabout the trade war.

Whether its responding to made-up stories about China placing a couple of phone calls, real negotiations or breakdowns in talks, themarkets reactionsto trade-related events have been strong.

Considering the world is more connected than ever, its hard to find stocks that shouldnt be badly affected by a trade war ortariffs.

However, today I have three all-American, relatively tariff-proof companies for you that have safe and soliddividendyields.

Investors have shied away fromAT&T(NYSE:T) because they think its a dinosaur. They couldnt be more wrong.

The stock, which is recommended inThe Oxford Income Letter, is trading near 52-week highs and yields a whopping 5.8%.

Free cash flow has been rising sharply, and AT&T pays just over half of its free cash flow in dividends. That gives the company the ability to continue toboost its dividend payoutevery year, as it has since 1985.

Ninety percent of AT&Ts revenue comes from the United States, making it an all-AmericanPerpetual Dividend Raiserthat should be fairly immune to any further intensification of the trade war.

Healthcare giantCVS(NYSE:CVS) is uniquely American. The retail pharmacy recently expanded into the pharmacy benefits management business an arguably necessary evil in an attempt to keep a lid on thehigh cost of drugs.

The company gets all of its revenue from the United States. This year, free cash flow is expected to soar 25%, more than double last years growth. CVSpayout ratio(based on free cash flow) is just 30%.

The stock yields 3.3%, and the company has not cut the dividend in the 22 years it has paid one. In fact, it hasraised the dividend many times(though not in the past two years), including in2008 and 2009.

CVS is another company that should not be affected by a trade war.

The last company in this list is a real estate investment trust (REIT).

Preferred Apartment Communities(NYSE: APTS) ownsapartmentsand retail centers in 12 states. Its properties include

All of its properties are in the United States and, like CVS, 100% of its revenue comes from the USA.

The companys funds from operations (FFO), a measure of cash flow for REITs, have nearly quadrupled in the past four years.

In 2019, Preferred Apartment Communities is expected to pay 72% of its FFO to shareholders in the form ofdividends.

The stock pays a robust 7.7% dividend yield and hasraised the dividend every yearsince it began paying one in 2011.

These three companies should allow dividend investors to breathe easy no matter what news comes out of Washington, Beijing or anywhere else in the world.

With a portfolio featuring all-American winners like these, you can rest secure in the knowledge that your dividends are safe.
