Top Dividend Stocks for February

Posted by D4L | Monday, February 07, 2011 | | 0 comments »

The S&P 500 is now up a whopping 90% from its March 2009 low. After the last snarling bear market (2000–2002), it took the index 54 months to achieve the gains it has racked up in just 22 months this time. To make the most of the remaining upside in the current cycle, investors should follow some simple stock dividend advice. Every investment you purchase from this moment on should deliver some sort of immediate cash return. We’re past the stage when you could safely buy depressed assets for their rebound potential alone, regardless of whether they produce any income.

Obviously, you want to make sure the payouts of the dividend stocks you buy are sustainable under a variety of stress scenarios. Assuming they are, a generous cash yield offers your best assurance that the price you’re paying is real, not a pipedream. Here are the top dividend stocks to buy for the month of February: McDonald’s (MCD), Ship Finance (SFL), Merck (MRK), CoreSite Realty (COR), Western Asset Emerging Markets Debt Fund (ESD), CPFL Energia S.A. (CPL) and Telkom Indonesia (TLK).
