High yielding dividend paying stocks with highest buy rating originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". I'm often asked if I would recommend to buy high-yielding stocks. I answer them that it makes sense to buy stocks with a yield over five percent but don't expect that they will pay the dividend to the end of your lifetime and don't expect that they will hike their payments each year or with a higher growth rate.
I personally bought several high yielding stocks around the world and nearly each investment was a disaster. Sure I also made some profits with stocks from the tobacco industry but they were the only investment ideas that worked for me. If I draw a line and make a calculation about my High-Yield activities, it would result in a very bad performance. That is my personal experience with the investment category.
Stocks with a higher yield are risky but it makes sense to look for them. Today I like to discover the most recommended High-Yields with a market capitalization over USD 300 million. Nine companies with a yield over 5 percent have a strong buy rating.
