    For dividends I've stopped looking at individual stocks. I like closed end funds.

    MFD
    it's an infrastructure/utility dividend income fund. At .33 quarterly it's paying 10.22% with a current s/p of $11.69
    the five year range is $10 to just over $18 which is what it's suppose to do...so, pretty much strictly income for this.
    Also, utilities seem to be 'rising interest rates' sensitive.

    Uranium is a fun market with the spook of disaster always lurking. I actually did really well buying UEC and URG
    at the bottom and sold both recently for a s/t gain. A couple hundred on URG but UEC I bought all under .97 cents
    and sold between 1.08 and 1.35 for afewk. I only have UUUU now.

    No U.S. telecoms, no U.S. headquartered companies for me.

    I bought Spark New Zealand Ltd. It has a current div yield of 8.14%

    It's home listing is obviously on the New Zealand stock exchange so all it's other listings (AU, US, Germany) key off the
    share price there. Monday in New Zealand is on. https://www.nzx.com/markets/NZSX/securities/SPK

    It has a U.S OTC listing SPKKY which is a sponsored ADR that is fairly active at 5/1 meaning 5 shares of SPK.NZX = 1 share of SPKKY on the OTC/US
    Friday SPKKY closed at $12.64 with volume at 61,503 http://web.tmxmoney.com/quote.php?qm_symbol=SPKKY:US There's also an extremely, thinly
    traded non sponsored ADR symbol NZTCF. I do not know who makes the market. I have shares under both symbols.

    I also have Telstra (Australian) 6.01% div yield currently. Sponsored ADR ticker TLSYY Friday $19.64 with 52,722 shares. Unsponsored TTARF 1 to 1
    I only own the sponsored on this.
