Dividends4Life: A 3 Dividend Stock Portfolio With a 4% Yield

A 3 Dividend Stock Portfolio With a 4% Yield

Posted by D4L | Friday, August 26, 2016 | | 0 comments »

The market is on a tear, making it harder than ever for dividend growth investors to find good buys for their money. While many people expect the market will correct itself, you might be missing out on steady gains if the market continues to “melt up” thanks to low interest rates. Fortunately, there’s a safe way to secure yield with upside to boot. While the market has bid many well-known dividend payers up to silly prices (and caused yields to crash), there are still a few lesser known names paying 4% yields with plenty of payout and price runway from here.

We can create a growth portfolio with a 4% yield using a bit of careful selection. In order for us to do this, though, we need to go against the herd and buy into sectors that are relatively unpopular in today’s market: Mercury General Corporation (MCY) is a rather boring insurance company. Helmerich & Payne, Inc. (HP) is an overlooked stock, partly because it’s hardly a house name (no, it’s not that HP). This HP is is almost a century old, with over a generation of dividend growth at its back. But there’s one caveat that explains its 4.5% yield: energy. Our third pick is another insurer – Old Republic International International Corporation (ORI), a 3.9% payer.
