Top 10 Dividend-Yielding Stocks of Our Ultimate Stock-Pickers
Our top managers continue to look to the pharmaceutical industry for yield.
By Brett Horn | Associate Director of Equity Research
Investors face some difficult choices in today's markets. The recovery in the U.S. economy seems to have stalled, and talk of a double-dip recession is in the air. Meanwhile across the pond, Europe faces the specter of widespread government defaults. In this light, and given the recent downturn in the markets, equities look like a fairly risky option. But given the rush toward safety and fixed income investments over the past few years, yields on fixed income securities are incredibly low. The yield on 10-year treasuries is less than 2%, while opting for a 30-year note yields investors little more than 3% per year on their investment.
