Concerns that a stock market correction is overdue may be turning investors, particularly those near or in retirement, into yield hounds. And since dividends on fixed-income securities are still at historically low levels, with the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasuries at less than 2.5%, they would do best to look for stocks with growing dividends being paid by high-quality companies, both for their yield and their potential share-price appreciation.

In addressing that interest, ratings and research firm Morningstar, which tracks the portfolio changes of 26 top-performing mutual funds for its "Ultimate Stock-Pickers" series, screened its funds list. It found the most dividend-focused funds with stocks that pay an annual yield greater than that of the S&P 500's 2% for last year. Pharmaceutical and health-care stocks dominate the list, with five representatives.
