Dividends4Life: 5 Solid Dividend Stocks With 5%-Plus Yields

5 Solid Dividend Stocks With 5%-Plus Yields

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, May 06, 2015 | | 0 comments »

Remember when you could get a 5% yield on a CD? Ah, those were the good old days. Today, you’d be lucky to get 5% on a relatively safe “high-yield” junk bond with a 10-year maturity, let alone something creditworthy and with a shorter duration. And yes, these days it is regrettably necessary to put quotation marks around “high-yield.” But despite the lack of yield in the bond market, you can still find a respectably high yield among dividend stocks.

If my options are to accept a “risk-free” 2% in government bonds, a risky 5% in junk bonds, or an only modestly risky 5% or more in dividend stocks, the choice is pretty clear. And when you add dividend growth into the mix, dividend stocks are a no-brainer for investors hunting for income. Today, I’m going to highlight five solid dividend stocks with high yields of 5% or more: HCP, Inc. (NYSE:HCP), Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA (ADR) (NYSE:BBVA), Telefonica S.A. (ADR) (NYSE:TEF), Total SA (ADR) (NYSE:TOT) and Statoil ASA(ADR) (NYSE:STO).
