Dividends4Life: Beaten-Up International Dividend Stocks Yield 7%

Beaten-Up International Dividend Stocks Yield 7%

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | | 0 comments »

If you're really determined to generate some income in the coming year, battered international dividend stocks may be worth some further financial research. The SPDR S&P International Dividend ETF (NYSEARCA:DWX) has a trailing 12-month yield above 5%. But given the recent pounding of international markets amid economic slowdown concerns, the forecasted dividend yield is nearly 7%.

That's a lot of income for a portfolio with a forward PE ratio below 14. Among the top holdings is Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.B); the ETF owns the A shares, but for direct investment the B shares are more USA-friendly. Yes, it's taken a big hit as global oil prices have plummeted, but for a 5%+ yield you get a dividend that has not been cut in 10 tumultuous years and a payout ratio that suggests it can weather the latest economic downturn without any dividend pressure.
