Dividends4Life: Great Dividend Stocks

Great Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Thursday, January 05, 2012 | | 0 comments »

In a crummy market, and with fixed-rate investments paying next to nothing, dividend stocks have become very chic. A common sense bubble? With a tumble ahead? Or continued value for investors? One crucial measure is the dividend coverage.

The Fortune list performs very well on that score. Two of the 10 stocks, Apple (AAPL) and Goodyear (GT), don’t pay a dividend. One, Enbridge Energy Partners (EEP), basically pays out all it makes, so its coverage has little or no cushion, by design. But the seven others – Caterpillar (CAT), Halliburton (HAL), Intel (INTC), Johnson Controls (JCI), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Microsoft (MSFT) and Royal Bank of Canada (RY) – all have great coverage, with reported earnings per share far above payout levels.
