With bonds still paying next to nothing despite the Federal Reserve’s plans to start ratcheting up interest rates, dividend stocks are the only viable way to drive cash flow at a level that at least keeps pace with inflation.

On the other hand, sometimes a yield is strong because the market proverbially threw the baby out with the bathwater. Even the names that have fallen due to fears of a reduced dividend, however, can sometimes make for worthy speculations.
