Dividends4Life: 6 High-Yielding Stocks for Dividend Investors

Meritage’s research is designed to flag companies whose shares are much less volatile than Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index and for which dividends make up 50% to 75% of their long-term returns. Many are no surprises: AT&T (T, $32.69, 5.8%), Verizon (VZ, $48.72, 4.5%) and CenturyLink (CTL, $35.41, 6.1%) make everyone’s high-dividend list. So do electric utilities. The fund presently holds Entergy (ETR, $78.11, 4.3%), Public Service Enterprise Group (PEG, $41.84, 3.7%) and PPL (PPL, $33.94, 4.4%). We expect the entire regulated electric utility sector to extend its run of good returns and consistent dividend growth. And even as the solar revolution slowly spreads, the established utilities will remain an integral part of the power-distribution system.

The rest of Meritage’s portfolio may stoke your curiosity. It certainly gave us some ideas. Despite years of growing stock prices, there’s still a decent selection of industrial, service and technology companies whose shares yield 4% or thereabouts, and not because the stock price collapsed: Altria (MO), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Quality Systems (QSII), Superior Industries International (SUP) and Zurich Insurance Group (ZURVY).
