18 High-Yields From The S&P 500 | The Best Dividend Payer Of The Index

High-Yield stocks from the S&P 500 originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". 

Dividend investors love a high yield and they are willing to give up growth for a higher yield. Not all stocks with a big dividend payment are good. That’s something I often told you. The main question is if you have enough money to resign the dividend. I do and you could it too if you have a long investment horizon.

A popular group of high-yield stocks could be found in the index of the S&P 500. The S&P 500 is a stock market index based on the market capitalizations of 500 leading companies publicly traded in the U.S. stock market, as determined by Standard & Poor's. As of now, around 18 companies from the index have a yield over five percent and five are currently recommended to buy.


As you see a high yield is not only the only solution for a stock buy. There are so many criteria which makes a stock attractive. I talk about growth, margins which is at least an expression of a solid and strong market position.  A Trustful management as well as a stable business environment are also two very important factors to consider.


What do you think about high-yield stocks from the S&P 500? Are they attractive for investors or should you take a look at other stocks with lower yield. Please leave a comment.

  3. AT&T was somewhat of a laggard last year. They have an impressive yield, but they seem to be falling behind Verizon. AT&T has grown its revenues at a much slower rate than Verizon since 2010. AT&T is still attractive, but it may be losing ground to its competitors.
