Today, I’m doing my part to give the people what they want by identifying stocks that are paying more than 10% per year in dividends. I point out that for investors who want any kind of guarantee, these won’t do at all—in fact, they are paying more than five times what you could reasonably expect to get with a guarantee. Does that mean they are more risky than stocks paying lower dividends? Of course it does, but as they remain incredibly popular investments, nonetheless, I’m happy to point to where they can be found.
On occasion, I have gone further down the yield list to find companies in sectors other than the most usual, but not today. Bring on the REITs, the financial companies, and the telecoms. This is an era for winners, not an era for outdated ideas of universal equality. And as this is an era of opportunity, I won’t be filtering out companies just because they aren’t big enough yet. The way to get super-rich, after all, is to get on board a winner while it’s small. And as I perceive this is not an era for eating cake first and icing second, I’ll start right away with the highest yielding stock on the list, and go down from there.
As always, remember to treat these ideas as just that, ideas, and do your own research before making any investment decision.
