Investing in the stock market is a good way to earn money. If you are looking for a high yield, search for those stocks that are doing better than 10%. To figure the potential stock return, add the dividend yield to the growth rate of projected earnings. A stock which has a yield of 2% and 12% earnings growth can give you a 14% return overall. I have collected eight high dividend yield stocks which you should consider for your portfolio. Take a look.
