3 Dow Jones Stocks With Shareholder Yields Over 10%

This blog is mostly dedicated to dividend growth stocks and yield is an important issue but it tells investors only half of the truth.

Beside dividend payments to shareholders, the company can also spend money for share buybacks. If we combine buybacks and dividends, we got a new yield, a shareholder yield, which is normally higher than the current dividend yield.

Below is a list of stocks from the Dow Jones which shows the current shareholder yields of the index. The results are better than the dividend yields due to positive share buybacks. Only three stocks have a double-digit shareholder yield.

Here are the top results with a 10+ percent shareholder yield...

  1. I have noticed that a lot of dividend oriented investors are watching and buying CAT lately. It is a very solid company that has focus on giving more through dividend. I can't say no to that. Keep up the great work!

    1. Yes, CAT is still a buy for many investors. I don't own them because of the high debt and the unchanged outlook. Weak commodity prices hit the company. But I do believe that a CAT investment is better than buying mining stocks.

      Thank you for reading and your good comment.
