The CEO negotiates a sale of the company at a 50% premium to the current market price is good. The CEO is arrested for falsifying financial statements and the share price drops 50% is bad. Surprises are rarely so euphoric or Draconian. They’re mostly pleasant or irritating. Discovering that a value-priced dividend stock is a much better dividend payer than you expected would certainly be slotted into the former category.

For the past 10 years, Templeton Emerging Markets Income Fund (NYSE: TEI) has paid a quarterly dividend between $0.20 and $0.25 per share. Templeton trades just north of $13 a share, which generates a yield of around 6% on the stated dividend. Diamond Offshore Drilling (NYSE: DO) is one of the larger and more-conservatively run offshore drillers. It owns a fleet of 45 offshore drilling rigs. Diamond is also controlled by the legendary Tisch family, which has long history of creating shareholder value.
