BP currently 6.8% and historically low price currently. They stopped dividend during oil spill, so some caution. Worked there years ago so employee match was a no brainer, selling half because of Obummer threats was stupid but safe.

VZ (verizon) currently has a dividend of 5.06%
SO (southern company) currently has a dividend of 4.74%

If interested in something a bit on the small side ($5.26/sh), try FTR with a current dividend of 7.89%

FTR did cut their div a year or so ago, to what it is now, so dyodd.



disclaimer: I own VZ, MO, ED, T, FTR.

Blackrock Kelso (BKCC) has a dividend of 10%.

I bought ALOT at $10 and now its at $9.30 or so, and I'm still way way up because I bought like 2 years ago and ive gotten 8 big dividend checks.

CAT dipped backed into the 60's ...it's gotten beat down with the all the global slowdown chatter. If it drops back into low 60's with around a 4.75 yield like it did a couple weeks back I'll probably start to accumulate.


PM over MO ...but it's run up recently

Buying more WMT.

VLKAY is 4% with all bad news factored in.

Some risky ones (potential dividend cut) are

SEAS
KMI
HHS

I've chaneled Seas and HHS in the past for small profits.

Question: Anyone know of a good research/resource website to tell what tax form you will receive from ownership of certain stocks? I purchased several dividend-paying stocks last year and most were reported on a form 1099-B as regular dividends but one of the companies was apparently more complex and setup as a Partnership. As a result I got a convoluted K-1 form to include in my tax return. I would like a good resource to identify this PRIOR to purchasing these stocks since I prefer to keep it simple on my personal tax return (and not have to potentially pay taxes on unrealized/undistributed gains that the company may have). Thanks.

Energy Transfer Partners LP, ticker ETP, pays mad dividends. It's an MLP or Master Limited Partnership. It has been beaten like a dog, with the rest of the energy sector, but still not bounced yet. I would think it is due a reversal. Does anyone else follow this pipeline company?

Chevron and or Exxon

Who think oil will stay at or below $40/barrel in the long run?

If you can afford to buy and hold this is a no brainer

Good call on the oil stocks. Decent time to pick some up. I have always preferred ConocoPhillips...tends to be a slightly higher dividend, currently over 5% right now. And JNJ was mentioned earlier...that has been a staple of mine for a while now. Nice steady - if unspectacular - dividends. And Northwestern Energy (now Northwestern Corp) has been good to me for many years. Not a huge dividend yield, but nice and steady over the years. And Verizon also has a place in my portfolio.

I am going to have to take a peek at some others that were mentioned here...I see a few that I am not familiar with...

People that chased that high dividend back in the fall got slaughtered. Anything over 6% is always a major red flag IMO. The dividend cut was a wise decision by the board, the company is still swimming in debt but I kinda like it at this price range ...now it can become a growth stock again.
