Pass on the "ice cream" and focus on the "spinach," writes Brendan Conway, noting the S&P's high-yield stocks are trading at their greatest premium to the steady dividend growers in at least 20 years. High yields may presage low future dividend growth, make the stock more susceptible to rising interest rates, and will get hurt more in event of a tax hike. Possible picks: VIG, SDY.
