Dividends4Life: 3 High-Powered Dividend Stocks to Add to Your Portfolio Now

While many investors have an appetite for risk, there’s room for a little certainty in anyone’s portfolio. Dividend stocks can play a useful role in that sense. Pick a company with a longstanding and hopefully growing quarterly payout and you don’t need outsized gains to feel good. Here are three high-powered dividend stocks to consider — and the risks involved in each...

Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO) stock is the only pick on this list that’s paying a strong dividend and also posting organic stock gains. That makes it a high-powered dividend stock indeed. The stock’s forward yield is just over 3%, despite shares climbing from around $30 to $43 over the last year. Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) stock has more or less moved sideways over the last 12 months, but investors in the stock have still been rewarded over that time period with one of the best dividend payouts in the game. With an annual dividend of $2.36, Verizon stock sports a forward yield just shy of 5%. General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) tells a similar story: Forward-looking growth is pretty shrug-worthy. The stock has lost half its value over the last 12 months after leadership shake-ups left investors uncertain at best. But that could just mean a great entry point and great future yield on cost for savvy dividend investors.

    I'm sticking with my GE for now. I guess time will tell if that will be a wise move.
