Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks Worth The Risk

Dividend Stocks Worth The Risk

Posted by D4L | Saturday, October 29, 2011 | | 0 comments »

If you are looking for something with similar (but not identical) risk, you've basically got two choices. First, you can shop harder for the best CD offers. Some institutions will offer higher-than-average yields when they need new money to fund a particular investment. You can do that shopping on websites such as www.bankrate.com.

The easiest, relatively low-risk way to do this is to buy shares of an exchange-traded fund that specializes in quality dividend stocks. The SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (ticker: SDY), for instance, has a current yield of 3.38 percent and an expense ratio of 0.35 percent. It invests in an index of the 60 highest-dividend-yield stocks in the S&P 1500 index that have increased their dividends every year for at least 25 years.
