4 High-Quality Dividend Growth Stocks With Over 5% Yield

It gets harder every day to find quality yield in a world where most people are thinking that the “lower for longer” mantra is starting to become a reality.

They have good reason to think that, because U.S. Treasury rates are among the highest investment grade sovereign debt yields in the world, and the 30-year bond is at a pathetic 2.26%.

Not a very fair return for loaning the government money for 30 years. On this blog we are constantly on the lookout for stocks that pay good dividends, are not horribly overbought and are rated reasonably high by some of the top firms we cover. This week we found four companies that pay at least a 5% yield and are rated Buy.

These are the results...

    Not a single one of these is making enough in annual earnings to support the dividend they are paying.
