Yes, as interest rates rise, investors will see new opportunities to increase yield. That should cause the value of dividend stocks to drift downward too.

But the saving grace is that dividend stocks are equities. Their dividend has potential to grow over time as their earning increase. Hence, growth potential moderates the downside.
