6 Dividend Stocks – $SBGI, $TSU, $NYX, $UVV, $AYR, $STX

When you buy a dividend stock, you have two ways to earn money – from the stock’s performance and from the dividends the stock yields. There is a catch though – you have to decide how you want to receive your dividends when you purchase the stock. Keep in mind that which ever method you use is taxable. If you receive your dividends as income, you can pay the taxes on that sum from the dividends themselves, but if you reinvest your dividends, you will have to pay taxes on the dividends you receive when they are disbursed, which could be a hefty amount out of pocket.

RENAISSANCE TECHNOLOGIES

DIVIDENDS AS INCOME

The dividend amount will vary dramatically between companies but, in any case, if you invest enough, you could use your dividends to replace or supplement your income. Now, with this strategy comes certain risks – after all, the company could stop providing dividends at any time, or change the dividend amount.

DIVIDENDS AS RETURN

On the other hand, you could choose to reinvest the dividends. Reinvesting takes advantage of compounding interest to net you even greater returns. It also acts as type of hedging – if the stock performs poorly, the reinvested dividends can offset loss. Between the benefits of reinvesting (it’s like “free money”) and the hedging ability of reinvesting dividends, if you can afford to pay the tax bill, reinvesting can be extremely profitable, especially if the dividend yielding stock is a strong and consistent performer.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT DIVIDEND STOCKS

Choosing the right dividend stock is important. Whether you want to use the dividends as income or reinvest them, finding a stock that will consistently perform well while offering consistent dividends is critical to managing your investment portfolio – whatever your purpose. For example, a stock like the Coca-Cola Company has been consistently providing dividends, and consistently increasing them, for the last few decades.

To give you an idea what to look for, we compiled a list of stocks with dividend yields over 4% of their respective stock prices. Then, we narrowed the list to look only at those stocks that pay out less than 50% of their profits as dividends (“payout ratio”). This was done to help control the quality of the list. Next, we looked at the number of stocks that had the highest number of institutional purchases in the current quarter.

Here is a list of the stocks we came up with. You can use as a starting point for your own analysis:
