Dividends4Life: This Indicator Reveals Top Dividend Stocks Yielding Up to 7%

Never before have we seen such a value gap. The last time this happened in mid-2003, European stocks soared 172% over the next four years. By comparison, U.S. markets returned 74% during the same period. The same thing happened in late 1998. That time, European stocks jumped 64% in 18 months. In contrast, the S&P 500 was only up 42%. How can us “yield hogs” strike our claim? I’m sticking to “Grade A” assets. Top-tier stocks are bursting at the seams with cash. Slow growth means fewer new projects, too. You can expect that to translate into higher payout ratios via dividends and share buybacks. Here’s my shopping list...

The drop in energy prices hammered big yielders like BP plc (ADR) (NYSE:BP) and Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE:RDS.A, NYSE:RDS.B). But thanks to cost cuts, new projects, and higher oil prices, these payouts look safe. National Grid plc (ADR) (NYSE:NGG) is the largest utility in Britain. You have to love the steady profits, growing asset base, and fortress-like balance sheet. And after the Brexit fallout, shares now sport a tidy five-percent yield. Take a look at telecom giants like Vodafone Group Plc (ADR) (NASDAQ:VOD) and Deutsche Telekom AG (OTCBB:DTEGY), too. These wide moat firms gush cash flow. Both stocks trade at a discount to U.S. names like AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ).
