7 Worst Dow Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, October 31, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Nearly half The Dow Jones Industrial Average yields more than 3% in dividends and the group as a whole yields 2.5% via the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSE:DIA). That’s not too shabby considering the relatively chinsy 1.8% you’re getting from a 10-year Treasury or this laughable “top national CD account rate” of 1.19% — neither of which would even keep up with the current “low” 2% rate of inflation.

If you’re an investor who puts income above all else, consider these stocks off-limits until they can up the dividend ante: Home Depot (NYSE:HD), International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH), American Express (NYSE:AXP), Alcoa (NYSE:AA), Carnival (NYSE:CCL) and Bank of America (BAC).
