Dividends4Life: 278 Dividend Stocks Yielding More Than 10-Year Treasurys

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note hit a new all-time low Wednesday amid anxiety over the European debt crisis — this time centering on Spain. How frantic has this latest flight to safety become? Check this out: More than half the stocks in the S&P 500 sport dividends yields in excess of the 10-year note, currently sitting at 1.65%.

This upside-down relationship between debt and equity helps form part of the bullish call on riskier assets over the longer term. As Bob Doll, chief equity strategist at BlackRock (NYSE:BLK), writes: ”The combination of the rising equity risk premium, falling stock prices, improving corporate earnings and lower Treasury yields means that stocks have become quite cheap relative to bonds.”
