Dividends4Life: These 4 Dividend Stocks Yield Over 5%. Here's Why I Bought Them

Over the past several years, I've become more interested in dividend stocks -- more specifically, stocks that both pay a strong yield and have solid prospects for increasing their payouts. High-yield dividend growth stocks, if you will. One telecom and three energy stocks are my highest-yield investments. You might be surprised to learn why I own them...

Over that time, I've bought shares of beaten-up telecom giant Centurylink Inc (NYSE:CTL), integrated oil and gas giant Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE:RDS-B), energy midstream leader ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE), and utility-scale solar farm owner 8Point3 Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ:CAFD). All of these companies still pay dividends yielding over 5% at recent prices.
