Dividends4Life: Big Dividend Stocks to Consider

Big Dividend Stocks to Consider

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, February 22, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Total return from stocks comes two sources: price appreciation and dividends. Most investors focus on the former much, much more than the later. And following the go-go days of the 1980's and 1990's, it's understandable why. But for long-term investors, dividends are a very important part of the equation. Over the last 80 years for instance, they have contributed a whopping 44% of the total return of the S&P.

There are a some stocks out there with huge dividend yields that look sustainable. I've highlighted 3 below that currently yield more than 7.5%. Neither has cut their dividend in the last 10 years and all were able to pay their dividends from operating cash flow in the last year. And each one is expected to see earnings growth in 2012: Dynex Capital (DX) Dividend Yield: 12.2%, Windstream Corp (WIN) Dividend Yield: 8.1% and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP (BWP) Dividend Yield: 7.9%.
