The following article was provided by our guest author Richard from Dividend Investor. We publish the article because we think it contains much value for our readers.

High dividend yield stocks are stocks that consistently pay a high dividend yield average of any chosen standard.

How can you choose high dividend yield stocks?

- First you should decide your goal and according to them do research on stocks by stock screener or brokerage web sites.

- Then research the performance of the company like their past few years' achievements. Analyze the trend of market or market price.

- Next step should be to look into the dividend yield. Dividend yield is dividing the amount of dividend paid by the price. The best dividend yield rate is from 5% to 10%.

- After that set the goal on the number of shares, which we you want to buy. If you have more shares, you get more dividends. Well, the number of shares is dependent on your available funds. However, it is good to diversify the shares you are to investing in – may be two or three companies.

Here I would like to share latest high dividend yield stocks with my opinion:

It's also acquire residential mortgage securities issued by U.S. government agencies, U.S. government sponsored agencies and private organizations.

Currently the S&P dividend payout ratio is 37% with long term average of 50%.

In conclusion, investors should carefully assess the high-yielding monthly distributions or dividends when they choose stocks. The security has cash distributions or dividends that are significantly affected by fluctuations in the prices of commodities, which suggest that there is an elevated risk inherent in investing in these securities.
