High Beta Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, December 11, 2012 | | 0 comments »

When it comes to sleepy, low-beta dividend stocks, investors have plenty of options. Nearly all of the members of the consumer staples, telecommunications and utilities sectors can be considered "low beta" and those three sectors combine for nearly 18 percent of the S&P 500's weight.

What about stocks with higher betas that compensate investors for the added risk and volatility? The perception may be that taking on a higher beta means a significant reduction, if not all out elimination, of dividends. The reality is that there are plenty of stocks out there that simultaneously wear the titles of "dividend stock" and "high beta." Just look at the following list: Deere & Company (NYSE: DE), BHP Billiton (NYSE: BHP) and SeaDrill (NYSE: SDRL).
