20 Stocks With Yields Over 10% And Highest Buy Ratings

Most recommended stocks with very high yields originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". I love stocks with high dividend yields but there are only a few with sustainable payments. I think about Altria or Lorillard. Other stocks have a huge potential for a dividend cut, also if they are a Dividend Champion or a stock with a very long dividend growth history. I made this investment mistake with Avon Products. The company was highly leveraged and became some operations problems. Finally they reduced the dividend dramatically.

Most of the people need stocks with very high yields. I don’t because my private wealth is high enough to catch the dividend payments and live off it. In the past, I often thought it would be the only solution to put all my money into the highest yielding stocks with the most attractive fundamentals. This strategy failed and I lost much money within the closed-end shipping industry. That was a big mistake from which I learned and I like to share this with you.


Please don’t put all your money into one stock or make a single bet on a high-yield stock. This is very risky. That’s all I can say. Make a good research and try to avoid an overweighting of a stock or asset theme.


Each month, I made a regular screen about the stocks with the highest dividend yields because I believe there is a lot of value information in it for my readers. This month, I like to show you the 20 most recommended stocks with a double-digit dividend yield and a higher market capitalization (over USD 300 million). Out there are 95 companies with a very high yield but only 35 have a buy or better recommendation. The REIT industry is still a big player on my screen with 6 representatives.



Here are the 3 biggest stocks from the screen:

    The U.S. residential property market is not robust by any stretch of the imagination. But after five years of plummeting home values and soaring foreclosures, prices are showing signs of bottoming out in many markets. Foreclosed homes typically sell at 30% or larger discounts to homes in similar neighborhoods that aren't distressed. But the shadow inventory of homes -- homes still moving through the foreclosure process -- is beginning to dwindle, putting less pressure on home values. There are even some signs of speculation developing in some once-hot markets, such as Miami and Phoenix, as short-term investors buy and sell homes on the cheap to generate a quick profit. REITs are a good choice.

  2. Diversification is the key. Do you sell the stock if it cuts the dividend ?

  3. No, my research is long-term orientated. I still own AVP shares in hope that they will recover one day. My position is 15% down.

    Great ideas, but the dividend space is becoming crowded. Diversification is the rule. Double down has never worked out. I Keep looking for breakouts and hidden treasures. Good work appreciate your efforts, the site is a little flakey, but it runs.

  7. CIG is incredibly cheap right now. Brazil is getting some love. Looks like a great growth as well as dividend play. Thanks for your work Tom.
