Dividends4Life: Most Attractive High-Yield Dividend Stocks In The S&P 500

In the midst of government indecision in the United States, investors of all types are feeling uncertain. With the pundits, economists, experts, and just about everybody else split on what 2014 will bring, one thing is clear: there isn't an overabundance of value opportunities in the market at the moment. This is a point that Warren Buffett harped on last month, when he told the media that Berkshire was "having a hard time finding things to buy," and it's at least partially evident in the metrics as well.

Let's take a look at two great examples of these types of dividend stocks. Both sport existing dividend yields above 3%, and pay a lower percentage of their earnings out as dividends than peer averages dictate they should. In fact, of all S&P-listed stocks with yields of at least 3%, this duo offers the two lowest payout ratios on the market: Of the entire universe of S&P 500-listed stocks with dividend yields of at least 3%, Ensco (ESV) has the lowest payout ratio. Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer (PFE), meanwhile, currently pays dividends out at the second lowest percentage of earnings among all S&P stocks with at least a 3% yield.
