Dividends4Life: High-Dividend Stocks Stretched Valuations

High-Dividend Stocks Stretched Valuations

Posted by D4L | Friday, April 27, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Dividend-paying stocks: By some measures their valuations look pretty stretched, even after the “risk on” 2012 trading has helped out other parts of the market. Brown Brothers Harriman’s Sam Burns and Ari Wald took a look at the highest-yielding stocks in the S&P 500 versus those with little or no yield, finding that:

"High dividend stocks currently have a much smaller than average earnings yield premium over low dividend stocks, ie., while high dividend stocks on average show an earnings yield 3.4% higher than low dividend stocks, the current earnings yield spread is just 1.2%, making high dividend stocks look relatively expensive."
