3 Stable Stocks With Generous Dividend Yields

Posted by D4L | Thursday, October 08, 2015 | | 0 comments »

Ever since the S&P 500 returned more than 26% on a year-to-date basis in 2013 — setting a multi-year high in the process — momentum among traditionally stable stocks began to wane considerably. With the support of easy money from the Fed’s quantitative easing program widely anticipated to end, investors voted with their wallets and gradually made their way to the exits. The commodities and energy crisis, along with the recently popped bubble in the Chinese financial markets, have put even more pressure on American blue-chips. The S&P index is currently down 4% YTD; if the negativity holds, this would be the first time the markets have gone red since 2008.

It’s apparent that opportunities for clear capital gains plays are diminishing. Rather, investors may be best served by considering stable stocks with generous dividend yields. Here are three companies that have solid foundations and currently feature dividend yields in the range of 5%: Stable Stocks: AT&T (T), Southern Co. (SO), Philip Morris International (PM).
