7 High Yielding Dividend Stocks With Reliable Dividends

In a world in which savings accounts yield practically nothing and the 10-year Treasury yields less than 2%, it might seem to be.

But if you’re willing to take some of the ups and downs of the stock market, there is still plenty of income to be found in dividend stocks.

Sure, the S&P 500’s dividend yield is only 2.1% at today’s prices, not a whole lot better than what you’d find in the bond market.

But year to date through March, the stocks making up the S&P 500 collectively boosted their dividend payments by 7.5%.
