Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks Pay Better Than The Government

Dividend Stocks Pay Better Than The Government

Posted by D4L | Sunday, December 18, 2011 | | 0 comments »

Last month, the dividend yields on American AAA corporations moved above the yield on 30-year Treasury bonds! That had never happened before. Even after last week’s stock market rally (which pushed dividend yields lower), the stocks of America’s four AAA companies still yield about 3%, on average, which is not quite as high as the yield on 30-year Treasury bonds, but still much higher than the yield on every Treasury bond of 24 years or less.

So you’ve got an opportunity here to forgo the dubious promise of a bankrupt nation and to invest, instead, in some of the strongest companies on the planet — those that are most capable of expanding, those that are most able to respond to government caprice and move operations wherever they need to move them, those with the most cash on their balance sheets. These are the companies that are going to lead the global economy for the next 10, 20, 30 years.
