Dividends4Life: Quality Dividend Payers Are on Sale

Quality Dividend Payers Are on Sale

Posted by D4L | Monday, September 10, 2012 | | 0 comments »

By investing in stocks that have sustainable competitive advantages, that pay healthy yields, and that currently sell below what Morningstar's equity analysts think they are worth, investors willing to take on the added risk that comes with equities can obtain a boost in yield and potentially some appreciation in stock price, as well. For investors wary of the market or uncomfortable with the added risk inherent in moving money into stocks from cash or bonds, such a move might not be worth it. But for those willing to take the step, there are many quality names that can help provide an income boost over what other investment classes are paying.

Be aware that inexpensive dividend-paying stocks are not as plentiful as they were, say, at the start of the year because of market gains and a high level of interest in such stocks, so paying close attention to valuations is essential. Below are just a few of the names that passed the screen: Exelon (EXC) Yield: 4.3%, McDonald's (MCD) Yield: 3.1% and Paychex (PAYX) Yield: 3.9%.
