HIGH YIELD

Stocks on this list have dividend yields in excess of 5% and potential to provide immediate high income. However, many of these stocks come with much higher risk and the possibility of a near-term dividend cut. Make sure to evaluate a company’s debt level, cash flow generation, sales growth, profitability trends, cyclicality and more to get a better sense of the yield’s safety.
