Weekly Links: February 3, 2018

Each weekend I highlight any notable articles that I came across over the past week.

An Improving Business with a High Yield of 11.2%
If you take a look at stocks with dividend yields north of 10%, you’d see that most of them aren’t perfect. Whether they are impacted by a cyclical downturn or a secular shift in the industry, double-digit yielders are not known to be the safest bets...

10 Dividend Stocks You Can Set and Forget
Tired of keeping a close eye on financial news and popping in and out of positions in an effort to get the most out of an increasingly volatile market? If so, you’re not alone. There is a solution, however, for investors who’ve become mentally exhausted thanks to a bull market that has now persisted for a stunning nine years — just buy some dividend stocks and stop watching the market every day.

If we assume the occasional recession as part of a long-term projection, we would still have a range of 7% to 9%...

Little-Known Investment Company Pays a Yield of 10.3%
Just think about that. The average S&P 500 company pays less than two percent at the moment, and a four percent payout would allow a company to call itself a “high-yield stock.” In this kind of environment, a yield north of 10% could go a long way towards boosting the return of an income portfolio...
