Dividends4Life: Profitable, High-Yielding Stocks to Buy and Hold for Years

In today's market of historically low interest rates, quality yield plays are hard to find. Sure, you can find stocks whose share prices have gotten crushed and offer high dividend yields, but those dividends are in danger of being slashed due to questionable fundamentals. That's why finding companies that pay high -- and, more importantly, safe -- yields is extremely difficult. Even after the post-jobs-report rally in the bond market, 10-year Treasuries still yield just 2.75%. A stock market soaring to new highs hasn't helped income seekers either; the S&P 500 index offers just a 2% yield.

As a result, for the right mix of yield and sustainability, look to these three stocks with easy-to-understand businesses and familiar brands: Verizon (NYSE: VZ) is in full-on growth mode. Meanwhile, food giant Kraft Foods (NASDAQ: KRFT ) has recently spun off several of its major brands, but it still holds a large portfolio of products that are used every day by millions of consumers. Finally, defense giant Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has proven throughout the year that it can meet global security challenges, even amid sequestration, and the threat of defense budget cuts.

    All three companies are on my watchlist.
    First I think I'll buy LMT - somedays befor christmas: -0
    And the other two are also well.
    Although I already have AT & T in my portfolio, I will also buy Verizon yet!
