Five International Dividend Stocks To Consider

After "How big is the yield?" the second question you should ask as an income investor is "How safe is the yield?" Whether you rely on the distributions to pay the bills or reinvest them to boost your returns, you want to know that your investments will continue to pay for years to come. This is why you should look for companies protected by wide economic moats with low payout ratios. These two factors will go a long way toward helping you build a rock-solid dividend portfolio, but I suggest you also look for high yielders with significant international exposure.

Here are five dividend stocks with a huge contribution of international sales:
