12 Solid Dividend Stock Bets For High Income Investors

Dividend-paying stocks have been bid up in recent years as investors seek alternatives to low bond yields. 

But even factoring in the higher valuations, at least one research firm insists that certain dividend-paying stocks still make sense considering the alternatives and the likelihood that monetary policies at various central banks will keep a lid on interest rates for a while. 

Stocks with strength in their balance sheets and the reliability of their dividends, could be seen as more risk-free than debt is.

Attached I've compiled a few stocks that offer a high degree of dividend safeness with room to grow them over time.

Each of the results offer a dividend yield over 3 percent.
