Seeking Alpha: 18 Dividend-Paying Stocks to Help Boost Gains

Seeking Alpha: 18 Dividend-Paying Stocks to Help Boost Gains

By    |   Wednesday, 02 December 2015 08:00 AM

The S&P 500 has risen 1.7 percent this year, putting it on track for the slimmest advance in four years, but dividend investing can help to boost those gains.

“Portfolios constructed around the principle of income production allow investors to coast through feast or famine in the stock averages,”says George Schneider, a former psychologist who writes about investing on the Seeking Alpha blog. “For these investors, there is always a feast of dividends to provide for whatever their needs are.”

Schneider last year constructed a sample portfolio of 18 dividend-paying stocks that he says weathered a year that saw the steepest market decline since 2011. His “Fill-the-Gap Portfolio” gained 7.7 percent during the first 11 months of the year from a combination of capital gains, dividend payments and reinvesting.

And it’s not too late to get on board for 2016, he says.

“The Fill-The-Gap Portfolio for 2015 presents a new beginning, an opportunity for retirees, near-retirees and new, younger millennial investors to start the process of making their transition to dividend growth investing in some of the safest, most predictable, long-paying, high-payout companies in America,” he says.

18 Dividend-Paying Stocks

  2. Altria Group Inc. (MO)
  3. Consolidated Edison Inc. (ED)
  4. Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ)
  5. CenturyLink Inc. (CTL)
  6. ConocoPhillips (COP)
  7. Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN)
  8. Ares Capital Corp. (ARCC)

  15. StoneMor Partners LP (STON)
  16. W.P. Carey Inc. (WPC)

“If you accept the premise that the equity markets will eventually correct back to more normal prices (we've seen the beginning of this with the powerful rebound of the last seven weeks), you may wish to consider some of the equities discussed here for your income portfolio needs,” Schneider writes.
