High-Yield stocks from the S&P 500 originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Investors like to make money with stocks. They want the best shares with a great possibility of a potential trading gain.
One strategy to follow is dividend investing. Dividend investors like me often sit on an asset and use the dividend payments as cash source for further investments. A stock with a 5 percent yield or more pays back your investment amount in 20 years.
Investing money into shares from the S&P could make it easier to reduce risks because the index has higher capitalized stocks with a normally broader diversified business model.
