Dividends4Life: High-Yielding Stocks Under $5

High-Yielding Stocks Under $5

Posted by D4L | Saturday, June 05, 2010 | | 0 comments »

Dividend stocks are attractive during times of uncertainty because of the consistent cash payout. While share prices can move sharply, as evidenced in the so-called "flash crash" on May 6 when the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped nearly 1,000 points intraday, dividends typically hold steady. Over the last month, the Dow has fallen roughly 10%, putting the index in correction territory.

Several stocks trading under $5, the dividend yield -- and risk -- are much greater. For long-term investors, the recent pullback has afforded a lower entry point in several high-yielding dividend stocks under $5, including Chimera, Universal Insurance Holdings (UVE) and Primedia (PRM). Nolte warns that investors looking for dividend-paying stocks that trade below $5 should look at potential candidates closely to see if the dividend will be safe.
