Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks Built To Last

Dividend Stocks Built To Last

Posted by D4L | Saturday, June 22, 2013 | | 0 comments »

Dividend stocks are wildly popular these days. Most investors know that a bad bond market makes dividends attractive. However, very few know what really makes a good dividend stock. The pay-out ratio, the percentage of a companies actual earnings that are paid out in dividends, is the key to successful dividend investing. Study after study has shown that high dividend payers with low pay-out ratios crush the markets' returns.

n the spirit of crushing the market going forward I've compiled a list of top dividend payers. These stocks all have a low pay-out ratio, below 60%, and a dividend yield over 2%. Here's the best of the best: General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) and Deere & Company (NYSE:DE).
