Dividends4Life: 4 High-Yield Stocks to Buy for 6%-Plus Dividends

Be it junk bonds, real estate investment trusts, master limited partnerships or simply risky common stocks, investors are exposed to more downside in return for yield. That’s not bad in principle, but in practice, investors often pay a dear price for the extra income. That said, within the high-yield space, there are better options than others. Few stocks yielding 6% or more have rock-solid dividends. However, the four I’ve identified here have above average odds. While high-yield stocks probably shouldn’t be the centerpiece of most people’s portfolios, these dividend stocks can add a nice touch of yield to a diversified portfolio. High-Yield Stocks to Buy...

BP plc (ADR) (NYSE:BP) hasn’t been a star performer lately. In fact, BP stock has badly underperformed its U.S. peers in recent years. Blame the Brexit, the ongoing reputation hit from the Deepwater Horizon disaster or whatnot, BP stock simply hasn’t performed. GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) stock is yielding so much because investors have concluded the company is a dinosaur that will soon be the next Blockbuster or Radio Shack. That could well happen, but at today’s price, the market is taking too dim a view of the odds. Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA (ADR) (NYSE:BBVA) isn’t the world’s most popular bank. But that Spanish banking giant is an increasingly attractive option, particularly in light of the pro-EU results of the recent French election. Omega Healthcare Investors Inc (NYSE:OHI) had a strong first quarter. The stock, which spent much of 2016 in a funk, rallied sharply. However a 5% sell-off in OHI in recent days has the stock looking like a decent dip buy.
