Dividend Stocks to Buy Today

Posted by D4L | Friday, November 11, 2011 | | 0 comments »

In today's low interest rate environment, long-term investors may wish to consider dividend stocks as an alternative -- or supplement -- to fixed income investments. At 2.01%, the dividend yield of the S&P 500 index generates approximately the same amount of income as the 10-year Treasury note. This yield is paltry by absolute [and historical] standards, but for investors with a longer-time horizon, a diverse basket of fairly priced stocks offers a reasonable likelihood of capital appreciation.

Each of these seven stocks has a higher dividend yield than a S&P 500 index fund, has a buy rating:
1. Collector's Universe(CLCT)
2. American Electric Power(AEP)
3. Spectra Energy(SE)
4. American States Water(AWR)
5. PPG Industries(PPG)
6. J.M. Smucker(SJM)
7. Exxon Mobil(XOM)
