Dividend Investors Should Love These 5% Yielding European Stocks
There is a reason for this, which is that economic growth remains very weak throughout Europe, due to a number of factors including the financial crisis in Greece. But there remain a number of highly profitable European companies that have a global reach, and as a result are still generating strong cash flows. Even better, they pay very high dividend yields, in many cases far higher than the yields available in the U.S. Specifically, I believe income investors should love...

4 ETFs That Will Help Diversify Your Portfolio
While the four ETFs below are likely the best group of four you will find for long-term investing and diversification, this might not be the ideal time to jump in with two feet. That said since nobody truly knows how long the current bull run will last, you can jump in with one foot. This means only using a small percentage of your available capital to invest, thereby reducing risk without sacrificing upside potential. If the market continues to appreciate, then you still have a small win. If the market takes a hit, you have more capital available to buy at lower prices. It’s a win win as long as you’re patient.

With the five lowest-yielding Dow stocks paying less than 1.25% in dividends, it's tempting to conclude that some companies are simply too tightfisted with their cash. Yet if you look beyond dividends, you'll find that several of these Dow stalwarts aren't as stingy as you might think. Let's take a closer look at these five stocks and how they make up for their low dividend yields...

5 Dividend Stocks Yielding Way More Than the S&P 500
The bull is graying but only so gradually that the beast’s ultimate demise will almost certainly catch most investors off guard. To keep yourself from being lulled into potentially fatal sleep, I suggest focusing your new buying on stocks with above-average dividend yields and solid prospects for dividend growth. Should the market slip on a banana peel, you can count on dividend stocks to stay afloat far more effectively than low-dividend or no-dividend names. In the universe of dividend stocks, I’ve selected five outfits that hand you dividend yields that are at least 50% higher than that of the S&P 500. Let’s take a look at these five dividend stocks to buy now...
