Dividends4Life: Stocks With Suddenly Higher Yields

Stocks With Suddenly Higher Yields

Posted by D4L | Monday, June 27, 2011 | | 0 comments »

The market's 7% or so tumble since the end of April has plumped up yields on some prosperous companies to well more than 3%. For the truly greedy, the names listed below might hold interest. High-yielders, they're not, but by today's standards they pay plenty--and dividends will help dampen the blow if the market continues its recent slide.

Consider the link between dividend payments and earnings growth. As noted earlier this month, companies that return as dividends a healthy portion of their winnings to stockholders tend to go on to produce faster earnings growth than those that don't. Perhaps that's because the companies that are most confident in their future are also ones that are willing to part with cash today. Consider:

Mine Safety Appliances (MSA) Four-week price decline: 12% Dividend Yield: 3.1%
Genuine Parts (GPC) Four-week price decline: 10% Dividend Yield: 3.6%
Intel (INTC) Four-week price decline: 9% Dividend Yield: 3.4%
