This S&P 500 Company Yields 10.7%

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, November 06, 2019 | | 0 comments »

One of the things I like to use to show how suppressed dividend yields have become is the average yield of companies in the S&P 500 index. Historically, S&P 500 companies had an average dividend yield of 4.3%. Today, the average component of the benchmark index yields just 1.9%.

Still, that doesn’t mean every S&P 500 stock is stingy. For instance, there’s Macerich Co (NYSE:MAC), a real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered in Santa Monica, California. Added to the S&P 500 in May 2013, the company currently has a quarterly dividend rate of $0.75 per share. Trading at $28.09, MAC stock offers a jaw-dropping yield of 10.7%. In other words, Macerich has yielded more than five times that of the benchmark’s average. As a matter of fact, MAC is the highest-yielding S&P 500 stock at the time of this writing.
