High-Yield stocks from the S&P 500 originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Dividend investors like high yield and they are willing to give up growth for a higher yield. Not all stocks with a big dividend payment are good. That's something I often told you. The main question is if you have enough money to resign the dividend. I do and you could it also if you have a long investment horizon.
A popular group of high-yield stocks could be found in the index of the S&P 500. The S&P 500 is a stock market index based on the market capitalizations of 500 leading companies publicly traded in the U.S. stock market, as determined by Standard & Poor's. As of now, around 18 companies from the index have a yield over five percent and only five are currently recommended to buy.
As you see a high yield is not only a solution for a stock buy. There are so many criteria which makes a stock attractive. I talk about growth, margins which came at least from a solid und strong market dominance. A Trustful management as well as a stable business environment are also important factors to consider.
