How To Select Dividend Stocks For 2012

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, January 10, 2012 | | 0 comments »

With investors braced for another tumultous year on equity markets, it is widely expected that dividend stocks will remain in high demand. Here are three high-quality and attractively-priced plays that offer investors attractive yields for now and also into the future.

Wal-Mart has hiked its dividend rate for 35 straight years and there’s no reason to believe the impressive streak will end. Indeed, the discount retailer is widely expected to raise its quarterly payment for March to 40¢ from 36.5¢, potentially bolstering its current yield of 2.4%. While the stock has been a hot buy over the past six months – rising 24% since mid August – it continues to trade at a multi-year low price/earnings of 13.5x and remains significantly underowned by institutional investors.
