Dividends4Life: High-Dividend Stocks An Endangered Species

High-Dividend Stocks An Endangered Species

Posted by D4L | Thursday, April 15, 2010 | | 0 comments »

Not long ago, such shares roamed the market in abundance, but their very popularity has shrunk their numbers. To find them now, you'll need to expand your search. It's getting harder and harder to find a stock that pays a decent dividend. At least if you look in the usual places.

What's that you say? Look in the unusual places? Couldn't agree more. That's exactly what I'm aiming to do here. But the task isn't getting any easier: The name of the song the market's singing right now is "Where Have All the High Dividend Yields Gone?" One of the dividend screens that I run would regularly pull up 50 to 80 stocks before the financial crisis hit and pulled up even more during the depths of the Great Recession. When I ran it April 6, it came up with just 23 stocks.
