The absolute best dividend stocks in America
This little-known index contains a collection of reliable, high-yield stocks. It could lead you to some of the most attractive yields on the market.
I'd bet most income investors know about the S&P Dividend Aristocrats Index.
What a strange, misleading article. Many issues such as VZ, T, MSFT, or GE now pay much better, have been paying much better, and can reasonbably be expected to continue to pay much better.
Plus, their payouts don't require an annual fund expense of 0.35%, as does the SPDR S&P Dividend ETF. Such a fund expense may not sound like much, but run a few numbers and see what such an expense can do to your actual gain.
What a crock! Pittney-Bowes just cut it's dividend in half, announcing it the same day this article was published!
Leaving out 3 in February...They pay an Average of 6.2%....(One only pays about 1.8%)
Left out a few others, that vary and average about 2-4%...BUT you can get the picture.?
AND it ALL started over again on May 1st.
It's fairly easy and anyone can do it with an Account and a little work, and of course cash.
O, ARR, WSR, CIM, WIN, PSEC, SFL,?
All of these I own and are from 4- 13%
I guess the '10' are just the ones the article staff owns....
REGAL.....I know you have some MF/ETFs that pay Monthly...That's great if you want a Rev-Stream that pays the bills..
But we/I have managed to build my own little Mutual Fund...Usually runs between 22-28 Equities at anyone time(26)....I do trade in and out, calling it re-allocation...Or sometimes "better choices."
The point I'm making is we get dividends just about EVERY WEEK...Year round...And I was not trying to accomplish that...It just happened...No fees from Funds or Managing FA...etc.
Some come in the same days, other come in a different week.
Only in February and a 3 month cycle from that, do we not receive on a weekly basis...!!
Three different Companies pay on that same day...It was 2/14 this year.
When a Mutual or ETF pays once a month, they have been collecting divs all month long and then pay you...
In the meantime they have manipulated your money for 1-4 weeks and made a bundle.
Phil....Those are all good choices...I guess MSN chooses the Flavors of the Week??
I didn't list some other info, takes too long, but there are good plays in Energy oil/coal/gas/reatail
and Pipelines..Some or many are MLPs or LPs...
And Home improvement had/is on a tear...But like many good stocks...Everything is pricey.
That's part of the reason "Dividend Percentages" are down a little.
Any one investor has to make those choices and should do the research...imo.
Mix it up and be diversified..
someone has an agenda ! Best Dividend Stocks? How much did SPDR pay you to write this article ?
