Super S.A.F.E. Sleep Well At Night Yield Stocks

Dividends are particularly important for investors to consider, because historically speaking dividends have provided a considerable share of the stock market’s total return. To illustrate, suppose for example you purchased shares of the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) back on 12/31/1999 – you would have paid $146.88 per share. Fast forward to 12/31/2012 and each share was worth $142.41 on that date, a decrease of $4.67/share over all those years. But now consider that you collected a whopping $25.98 per share in dividends over the same period, for a positive total return of 23.36%.

Dividend Channel compiles a “S.A.F.E. 25″ list. Below are five of the companies that have made the Top S.A.F.E. 25 Dividend List: Old Republic International Corp. (NYSE: ORI), AT&T (NYSE: T), McDonald’s Corp (NYSE: MCD), Leggett & Platt (NYSE: LEG) and Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX).
