5 Dividend Stocks Yielding More Than 5%

Posted by D4L | Sunday, May 04, 2014 | | 0 comments »

High-yield dividend stocks are not all created equal. If you’re an investor seeking income, you’re also frequently seeking stability, and stocks that boast massive dividend yields can also pose a big risk to your portfolio. As the old joke goes, the easiest way for a dividend stocks to double their yield isn’t to pay out more … it’s to have their share price cut in half. So where can investors look if they want high-yield dividend stocks but don’t want high-risk investments that could see shares crash or see distributions slashed?

Here are five solid dividend stocks, all with yields north of 5% but also with a good measure of stability: AmeriGas Partners (APU), Altria (MO), Medical Properties Trust (MPW), Douglas Dynamics (PLOW) and Icahn Enterprises (IEP). If you believe that the stock market will get choppy, it may help to have a shrewd money manager on your side like Mr. Icahn. And dividend stocks aren’t a bad idea, either. If you want income but don’t want to settle for the meager yield of Treasuries, you could do much worse than the hefty 5.7% yield in IEP stock right now.
