How to Find Real Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Friday, January 11, 2013 | | 0 comments »

'm always on the hunt for good dividend payers so I try and read articles and posts on good dividend paying stocks mostly to come away disappointed with stocks paying 2% - 4% dividends. That is not good. Doesn't matter if the dividend is growing or has been growing forever, a current yield of 2% or 3% is not what I would consider a good dividend stock. I want yields of more than 4%, preferably more than 6% and the expectations of growing dividends. And it turns out that this is not a difficult problem at all. I simply needed more research. And here it is.

Let me start with my favorite dividend stock - Kinder Morgan. You have two options investing in Kinder Morgan -- KMP (NYSE: KMP) and KMR (NYSE: KMR). They pay a dividend of 6% and 6.3%, respectively. Another good dividend paying stock is Verizon (NYSE: VZ) (4.8% dividend). Personally I prefer Verizon over AT&T (5.3% dividend) because as of now Verizon has invested in actually having a better network with more coverage. Also the stock has been performing better.Another industry that pays good dividends is the Shipping Container Leasing industry. The leaders Textainer Group (NYSE: TGH) and TAL (NYSE: TAL) both pay excellent dividends of 5.6% and 6.8%, respectively.
