Dividends4Life: High Dividend Stocks From Mergent's Dividend Achievers

Investors chasing high yields have limited options to invest in high-quality stocks that pay high and sustainable yields. The Mergent Dividend Achievers 50 Index, a subset of the U.S. Broad Dividend Achievers Index, focuses on 50 highest yielding stocks that meet Mergent's indexing requirements. All 50 stocks are dividend-paying companies with a history of increasing dividends for at least ten years. All index members have daily trading volumes in excess of $500,000. However, it should be noted that high yields of many index constituents reflect higher risks associated with the nature of the company's business operations.

For investors interested in specific high-yield stocks, here is a closer look at seven of the largest holdings in the high-yielding Mergent Dividend Achievers 50 Index: Pitney Bowes (PBI), Vector Group Ltd. (VGR), Old Republic International Corporation (ORI), People's United Financial (PBCT), Leggett & Platt Inc. (LEG), Avon Products Inc. (AVP) and Mercury General Corporation (MCY).
