A Quick Overview Of The Highest Yielding Stocks From The S&P 500

S&P 500 Stocks With Yields Over 5% Originally Published On “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. The S&P 500 index is a popular used tool by investors. Professionals like big insurance player or pension funds allocate their portfolio weighting on indices like the Dow Jones Index and Standard & Poor’s 500. The S&P 500 is a free-float capitalization-weighted index published since 1957 by Standard & Poor's, a division of McGraw-Hill Companies. For income investors, people who search the best dividend paying stocks in order to boost their dividend income, it is very revealing to know what yields are currently available.

I screened the index with its 500 companies by a minimum dividend yield of 5 percent. The index has twenty-three high yields and the highest yield amounts to 13.61 percent, paid by Pitney Bowes (PBI). Eight high yields have a P/E ratio below 15 and nine are currently recommended to buy.

    Everyone loves high yielding dividend stocks. But there are some companies that most home gamers with an E-Trade account don’t know about. While these top 10 names are not household brands in the U.S., they sure are in the big four emerging markets. Many of these are growth stocks so their yield will come down. But as their yield comes down, that means their stock price has gone up. All of them yield better than the average in the MSCI Emerging Markets index and better than the average dividend yield in the S&P 500.
