Dividend stocks & ETFs?

What are some of the best dividend stocks?

I know AT&T and CenturyLink pay really high dividends nearly 10% or more.

Looking to create a small portfolio of dividend stocks for an extra stream of income.

CTL pays $0.54 each quarter or nearly $2.15 annually. At current stock price it’s a 13% annual yield.

Suggest some High Dividend ETFs with strong fundamentals.

      Someone suggested me CTL for high dividend yield. 13% is great. I’m not sure about the stock fundamental. Haven’t had a chance to look at assets/debt & financial statement.

      Thinking about buying 200 to start with, that will generate nearly $425 annually in cash. I’m looking a create a dividend portfolio. Usually dividend stocks are less volatile and are range bound unless something terrible goes wrong with the company.

      My target is to get to $1000 dividend income by the end of this year. Start taking small steps toward additional income streams.

      Yes I am planning to do the same I.e. create a dividend stock portfolio and do a dollar cost averaging.

      What good is 13% if the stock has tanked 20% in the last 5 years, in probably the longest running bull market. Your target should include growth stocks as well, not just dividend.

      Make sure those dividents are not powered by debt

      Yeah, I think ATT is that kind of a stock. High dividend funded by high debt. Very risky indeed and can tank the stock by 50% in no time.

    TRI seems to have a very high dividend yield of 36.87%

      I don’t know where you are looking but it’s around 3% annual yield.

      36-37% seems extremely high & unsustainable for a business.

    AT&T also looks strong with nearly 10% payout but it has accumulated huge debt in past year or so.

      Yup, TimeWarner and DirecTV (losing subs) aren’t cutting it either. I expect the high dividend is to attract folks before the sp drops.

      AT&T has been high yield stock for few years now. I don’t think it’s to attract new investors.

      1.33% yield. Too low. Better put money in Capital One for 2% plus money is safe.

      Why is money safe in cap one ?

      I meant Capital One savings account with 2% interest rate paid out monthly.

      Low yield nearly 3%. Moreover Tabacco stock is a risk looking at how cannabis is doing. MO invested in Cronos recently looking at future risks to Tabacco products.

    • Where the f you are getting your yield numbers? MO yields ~6.5%. You shouldn’t invest in stocks if you can’t even find these basic financials.

    VZ, one of the princes in the dividend game. Love when my RSUs get an extra 5% bump on top of the recent upward movement.
