The Safest S&P 500 High Yield Dividend Stocks

High Yield Stocks From The S&P 500 With Low Beta Ratio Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. High Yield stocks are interesting because they pay a huge amount of cash to shareholders pocket. If a company has yield over five percent and it pay the money for a decade, you will have received your investment amount by more than a half in cash. The only point we should look at is the stability of the dividend payments.

I screened all S&P 500 high yields by the lowest beta ratio. The beta ratio is a statistical ratio which measures the dependence of the stock in relation to the whole capital market. If the ratio is below one, the company has a lower risk than the market. From all nineteen S&P 500 high yield stocks are fifteen with a beta ratio of less than one but only six are currently recommended to buy. Thirty percent of the results come from the domestic telecom services industry.

Here are my favorite stocks:
