Dividends4Life: Mom And Pop Have Driven Yields Down

Mom And Pop Have Driven Yields Down

Posted by D4L | Thursday, June 21, 2012 | | 0 comments »

It would appear that as the mom and pop investors have spent the last several years deleveraging, they have been seeking out the safety of Treasuries with their investment dollars. Investors who have been desperate to protect their capital would be wise to consider he multitude of dividend-paying stocks that consistently increase their payouts and offer richer yields than those to be found on a 10-year Treasury.

More than half of the S&P 500 (288 companies) currently offer dividend yields above that of the 1.63% on 10-year Treasuries, among them stalwarts like Coca-Cola and Microsoft, the latter of which Rogers recommends in Barron’s, while 139 companies in the index yield 3% or better, including McDonald’s and Johnson & Johnson, which has a tremendous track record of consistent dividend increases.
