Dividends4Life: 3 “Strong Buy” High-Yield Dividend Stocks

Dividend stocks from financially healthy companies can also be a smart way to hedge your risk against more volatile stocks. I used the powerful TipRanks stock screener to find the best dividend stocks with high yields (above 2.5%) that have a “Strong Buy” analyst consensus rating. The rating is based on the proportion of buy ratings the stock has received over the last three months. I looked across all sectors and at mega, large- and medium-cap companies. Now let’s delve into the three top dividend stocks that provide the most compelling investment opportunities...

Biotech giant Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:GILD) pays a stunning quarterly dividend of $0.52 — adding up to an impressive $2.08 per year. Thriving U.S. semiconductor manufacturer Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:CY) has a 3% dividend yield, easily beating the 2% consumer goods sector average. The third pick is major wireless infrastructure provider Crown Castle International Corp. (REIT) (NYSE:CCI). CCI brings in a very high dividend yield of 3.7% versus the sector average of just 2.1%. This means that CCI pays out a quarterly dividend of $0.95 with an impressive dividend growth of three years.
