Cheap Dividend Stocks Loved Hedge Funds

Posted by D4L | Monday, December 10, 2012 | | 0 comments »

We have found ten cheap dividends stocks that hedge funds were in love with during the third quarter. Dividends play a big role in total stock market returns, hence the reason we have a special appreciation for those stocks that have solid dividend yields—especially in our current low rate environment. In a span that covers the last 30 years leading up to 2012, the Wall Street Journal notes that dividend-paying stocks have returned an average of 8.9% annually, compared to 1.8% for non-dividend paying stocks.

We have ranked these stocks by the number of hedge funds reported to own these stocks at the end of the third quarter, from largest to smallest: Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. (NYSE:FCX), BP PLC (NYSE:BP), Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX), Walgreen Company (NYSE:WAG), ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), Eli Lilly & Co. (NYSE:LLY), General Dynamics Corporation (NYSE:GD) and Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE:LMT)
