With interest rates rising, income-seeking investors have more options to choose from as bank CDs and government bonds are paying more now than they have in years. In fact, with many one-year CDs yielding more than 2%, investors can collect a bigger income stream with a lot less risk than they could from the average stock in the S&P 500, which currently yields 1.8%. However, for those seeking more income, and willing to take on some additional risk, there are several compelling high-yield options out there.

Four that stand out are Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE:CEQP), TerraForm Power (NASDAQ:TERP), Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP), and W.P. Carey (NYSE:WPC). Not only does each currently offer more than double the yield of the average bank CD and stock in the S&P, but those income streams are likely to grow in the coming years.

The beauty of income investing is that it allows boring businesses to deliver exciting returns. A few percent in dividends may not seem like much. But if a company can consistently raise its payout, shareholders will be handsomely rewarded in the long run...

Just ask any longtime shareholder of Chubb Ltd (NYSE:CB) and you’ll see what I mean. Chubb stock hasn’t really made many headlines, but, over time, it has returned a tremendous amount of cash to investors. Chubb is the largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance company in the world. It provides a wide range of products and services, including commercial and personal property and casualty insurance, personal accident and supplemental health insurance, reinsurance, and life insurance to a diverse client base.

Two High-Yield Stocks to Own Forever

Posted by D4L | Sunday, June 17, 2018 | | 0 comments »

Even after multiple rate hikes from the U.S. Federal Reserve, savings accounts are still paying next to nothing. That’s why over the last several years, more and more income investors have started considering high-yield stocks. The problem is, though, most high-yield stocks today are not known for their dividend safety. If you are saving for retirement, you probably don’t want to put your money in a company that might cut its payout soon. Lock in High Dividend Yields That Are Also Safe...

And even if you have a bit more risk tolerance, buying companies with questionable yields can still be a painstaking process. For one, you’d have to pay close attention to the company’s financials to make sure it has enough money to cover the next dividend payment. Still, that doesn’t mean investors should ignore high-yield stocks altogether. If you are willing to do the research, you can still find high-yield companies that can give even the most risk-averse income investor a peace of mind. Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) and AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) serve as great examples.

Many investors label companies with long dividend track records as “dividend aristocrats.” That is not just a catchy term. There are indices devoted to dividend aristocrats, including the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index. The Dividend Aristocrats Index, which serves as the benchmark for a well-known exchange-traded fund (ETF), holds companies with dividend increase streaks of at least 25 years. While many dividend aristocrat stocks are trailing the broader market this year, historical data suggest dividend growers usually outpace broader benchmarks over the long haul. Here are some dividend aristocrats to consider buying now...

Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the largest U.S. oil company, has a dividend increase streak that dates back to the 1970s. Another Dow component, Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE:PG) is the world’s largest maker of household products. Aflac Inc. (NYSE:AFL) is much more than the company behind the commercials with that wacky duck. Medical device manufacturers have been a source a strength for the healthcare sector for over two years and Medtronic Plc (NYSE:MDT) is one of the largest members of that group. Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE:KO) has paid a dividend every year since 1893 and is on a payout increase streak that is fast approaching six decades. Investors looking for a single stock play on the index fund and ETF boom may want to consider S&P Global Inc. (NYSE:SPGI). Like the other staples names highlighted here, Clorox Co. (NYSE: CLX) has had its problems this year.
