High Yields From The S&P 500 And Which Are Highly Recommended

High Yields from the S&P 500 and the best buy ratings originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". It’s good to have stocks with dividends. Dividends give you a passive income and improve your quality of life. Some of you don’t have enough money to live off dividends and they try to close the gap by choosing only High-Yields.

The higher the yield of a stock, the less capital you need for an acceptable return. But High-Yields often have the problem that they are not sustainable, especially when the market capitalization is low and the debt high.

We’ve seen this problem with Pitney Bowes, a very popular Dividend Aristocrat who yielded for months over 10 percent until they decided to reduce the dividend distributions by a half. For sure, they still pay a good dividend but your passive income is now significant lower.

Today I like to show you the highest yielding stocks from the S&P 500 with their current ratings. Only 13 companies survived the strong market gain since the beginning of the year. Last year, the number of High-Yields within the popular index was over 20!

Below the top results are many telecom service companies as well as electric utilities. Five of the results have a current buy or better rating.

Here are the highest yielding stocks from the screen:
