5 Great Dividend Paying Stocks With Yields Over 3% To Buy For 2017

Dividend stocks are income investor favorites because they not only pay cash to shareholders but also boost their payouts over time. These stocks are generally less volatile in nature and hence are often more dependable when it comes to long-term investment planning.

Dividend-paying stocks are particularly beneficial amid a low interest rate environment, as these stocks offer substantial yields on a regular basis. Moreover, such stocks are historically proven to outperform in the long term and are quite reliable in terms of wealth creation.

Yield is basically a stock’s annual dividend rate divided by its share price. A dividend yield can increase if a company boosts its payout. The yield can also rise if the share price falls. In fact, an ultra-high yield due to a plunging stock price may signal that a company is in trouble and is likely to cut or even suspend the dividend.

It's very important to own safe high yielding stocks. Not a high yield is the key for a successful investing, a stable and growing yield is the conclusion.

Attached you will find five stocks that offer current and historical dividend yield of more than 3% and might pay them for the next quarters.
