Dividends4Life: A Basket Of 5 Bear Market Dividend Stocks Yielding 5%

Dividend-paying stocks are back in vogue in 2014. The leading stocks year-to-date are the utilities and defensive sectors like the Mortgage REITs. Despite getting off to a nice start, and even with the bounce-back the last few days after a minor correction, stocks and bonds have largely traded in lock-step in 2014. You can see rising prices for both stocks and bonds in 2014 -- that would be falling yields for bonds.

If the composition of total returns reverses, that will put a higher priority on dividends and dividend-paying stocks, which bodes well for my Fab Five below. So let's take a look at 5 names collectively paying 5% if you employ my "basket" approach, which I continue to support for safety and diversification reasons: CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A) (NYSE:RDS.B), MarkWest Energy Partners (NYSE:MWE), American Capital Senior Floating (NASDAQ:ACSF) and Philip Morris (NYSE:PM).
