Dividends4Life: Ddividend Stocks To Buy Now

Ddividend Stocks To Buy Now

Posted by D4L | Thursday, August 30, 2012 | | 1 comments »

Investors can't buy dividend-paying stocks fast enough these days. And why not? Bond yields, especially those of Treasurys, are bumping along the floor, and the stock market, once again, is bouncing off the walls. What could be more satisfying than cashing dividend checks from a company that delivers them like clockwork for a plump 4% or 5% yield?

We found plenty of reasonably priced stocks that deliver above-average yields (the S&P 500 yields 2.3%). These companies have solid finances with enough cash to finance and increase their dividends. In particular, we looked for companies with a low payout ratio (the percentage of a company's earnings paid out in dividends). A payout ratio of less than 50% indicates that a company has flexibility to boost the dividend. Here are six standouts: Aflac (AFL), Applied Materials (AMAT), Chevron (CVX), General Electric (GE), Kohl's (KSS) and Wells Fargo (WFC).
