Do you like dividends? I do, which is why I look for stocks that usually have a lower dividend yield but are currently flirting with that nice round 10% yield mark. The following 5 stocks are all trading 1-2% below the 10% yield mark, but any dip in the market or sour news could make the stock stumble into a range that you then can pluck with a fatter yield.

In no specific order here are 5 stocks you may be interested in adding to your portfolio. Look into them, some may interest you more than others, but I wanted to give you a few that are currently out there. After all, what is better than getting a high yielding dividend stock cheap on a dip and winning with both stock price and dividend?
