10 High-Beta High-Yield Dividend Achievers To Beat The Street

There are a number of great companies in the market today but you need to know where the risks are exactly.

There are several ways to identify a risk. First, you can evalueate the business model and try to understand how they make money.

Second, you can look at the debt, equity, income and growth ratios. Both figures tell you something about the financial health of the corporate. If you like to know how volatile the stock is on the market, you should use the beta ratio.

A company's beta indicates the correlation at which its price moves in relation to the market. A beta greater than 1 indicates a company is more volatile than the market.

I've selected 10 Dividend Achievers for value investors with the highest beta.

These are the top Dividend Achievers...

    Thanks, Tom. Both Meredith and Helmerich & Payne were new to me. HP is probably too close to my already heavy oil segment, but Meredith offers diversification and a nice dividend. I may add it.
