Some areas of the dividend universe (telecom, utilities) may be pricey, but dividend stocks are not in a bubble, says ClearBridge's Mike Clarfeld. He suggests looking not just at the upfront yield, but instead at the ability of the company to increase the payout over time. "The sweet spot ... attractive dividends, but really dividend growers - we don't think they are overvalued at all."

    I get an updated list of dividend-increasers every month and select stocks based on dividend rate and payout percent. For the most part these are buy-and-hold investments. I realize they will go down when the market declines, but I've never been good at getting out, then getting back in at the ideal time.

     

    In addition to the "dividend aristocrats' I have some REITs, MLPs and Royalty Trusts to generate income.
