8 Promising & High Yielding Stocks Of The S&P 500

Dividend stocks also suffer from the same macroeconomic forces that are hurting stocks this year. From a stronger dollar to lower oil prices, there’s no shortage of issues to weigh on corporate earnings and revenue. 

But there is not everything bad in this world. If you believe the American economy is strong enough and capitalism is working, you should bet on stocks.

Let me mention one thing, stock investing is no game and you should invest your money wisely in order to achieve a solid gain.

High yielding stocks don't provide always a good return. You must be very selective. By selecting stocks only from great indices like the Dow Jones or the S&P 500, you should avoid the big mistakes.

That doesn’t mean that every stock on the list of the S&P 500’s highest-yielding dividend stocks is a dog — just that due diligence is as important as ever. Some of these names have a great track record of dividend payments (and loads of cash flow to boot.) Some are much more risky.

Check out my attached top picks for the moment. I've selected only high yielding stocks with a dividend yield over 5 percent. Do you like some of them? Please let me know your thoughts about the selection. I like to discuss the opportunities and risks from the stocks.

Here are the 8 top picks...
