Solid Low-Key Dividend Picks

Posted by D4L | Friday, March 15, 2013 | | 0 comments »

Amidst an economic backdrop where the 30-year U.S. Treasury bond rates are 3.1% and the Fed plans to keep target interest rates at historical lows through 2015, it's not a bad time to take a look at some solid dividend stocks that offer yields in excess of of Treasuries and are solid. By "solid", I mean companies that have a payout of earnings that is less than 50%, which helps ensure financial flexibility during tough economic times.

The five stocks listed below are relatively low-key, unknown and not followed heavily by Wall Street. Not unsurprising, the majority of these high-quality, relatively unknown, dividend picks come from the energy related industry; meanwhile, the others operate in the computer services and media industry: WGL Holdings Inc. (WGL), Westar Energy Inc. (WR), NextEra Energy, Inc. (NEE), SAIC, Inc. (SAI) and Gannett Co., Inc. (GCI).
