Dividends4Life: High Yield, Low Risk Stocks

High Yield, Low Risk Stocks

Posted by D4L | Friday, February 18, 2011 | | 1 comments »

The following is a list of high yield dividend stocks. Additionally, all of these stocks have low levels of risk, as defined by the RiskGrade ratings developed by the RiskMetrics Group. RiskGrades is calibrated to be more intuitive and easier to use than standard deviation or beta. According to the company, their rating system captures all the components of market risk: equity, interest rate, currency, and commodity risk.

The lower the RiskGrade rating, the lower the risk level of the stock. Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PHI), the first company in our list, has a RiskGrade rating of 76, which means that it is less risky than 87% of tickers on U.S. markets. As a result, this list might be the perfect starting point to a dividend investor with a relatively conservative risk profile for their portfolio. Full details below.
