Dividends4Life: 3 High-Yield Stocks With Virtual Monopolies

3 High-Yield Stocks With Virtual Monopolies

Posted by D4L | Saturday, February 10, 2018 | | 0 comments »

Regulated monopolies aplenty operate in the U.S. and around the world. In general, governments keep these businesses from putting their customers over a barrel and regulating prices and service levels, while the companies settle for a solid return without fear of competitive entry. Many others also either have such strong competitive positions or operate in just the right niche as to be virtual monopolies, and they can often make huge profits. And if they don't take it too far and kill the golden goose, they can keep these virtual monopolies going for a very long time. Either way, monopoly enterprises can make for solid investments, particularly if they're able to pay shareholders an above-average dividend yield.

We asked three of our contributing investors to give us a closer look at a high-yield stock with a virtual monopoly, and they gave us a surprising mix: a telecom whose monopoly business isn't the key to its future success in CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE:CTL), dominant aerospace behemoth Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA), and Latin American airport giant Grupo Aeroportuario del PacĂ­fico (NYSE:PAC).
