High Dividend Stocks With Sustainable Payments

Posted by D4L | Thursday, January 19, 2012 | | 0 comments »

High-yielding stocks are investors’ best friends. The extra payout helps increase a stock’s returns or offsets losses. As such, they make great defensive stocks. We expect that they will outperform 10-year Treasuries over the next 10 years. And, that’d be great if dividends were the only important criteria – but, it’s a little more complicated than that. After all, if you choose a dividend-yielding stock, you probably want to be able to depend on the fact that the stock will keep paying out.

We compiled a list of mega-cap U.S. stocks with high current dividend yields. The market data are sourced from Finviz. All companies in this list have market capitalizations above $10 billion, 12-month dividend yields of at least 4% and positive EPS growth. Some of these companies have more than 100% payout ratios, however these companies are expected to increase their earnings. Their payout ratios are expected to fall below 100% over the next few years.
