Dividends4Life: 7 Winning High-Yield Dividend Stocks With Payouts Over 5%

If you are interested in high-yield dividend stocks, it’s better to focus on a company’s history of growing its dividend rather than just looking for the juiciest dividend yields. That’s because dividend yields are often high due to some problem with the business that’s knocked its share price lower. That said, if you can find a group of stocks that yield 5% and have demonstrated the ability to grow the annual payment over a decent amount of time, double-digit total returns won’t be nearly as difficult to achieve. The trick is finding those stocks. Here are seven high-yield dividend stocks to buy with a payout of 5% or more that I believe can get the job done.

BP (NYSE:BP) currently yields 5.8%. It has paid a quarterly dividend for 32 consecutive quarters starting with a 42-cent payment in Q4 2010. Love him or hate him, Carl Icahn sure knows how to make money for his investors, and Icahn Enterprises (NYSE:IEP) is next on our list of high-yield dividend stocks. Brookfield Property Partners (NASDAQ:BPY) invests in real estate. Cedar Fair (NYSE:FUN) has been providing fun for kids and adults alike since 1870. BCE (NYSE:BCE) is Canada’s largest communications company. Brookfield Renewable Partners (NYSE:BEP) is the renewable energy arm of Brookfield Asset Management, who own 60% of the company. Ford (NYSE:F) is currently yielding 7%, a mouth-watering number for any dividend investor.
