Hi guys,

Looking to diversify a bit more. Anyone know of a good "very stable" company out there, that is paying good dividents? Usually high divident is risky, I'm looking for a good enough divident, with very little risk, like Verizon or something...

Any advice please.

UST’s zero risk 3%.

If you don't have enough VZ or T already, buy more. At these prices T is a buy.

Buy a dividend ETF instead of individual stocks, you'll get a group of dividend paying stocks. This way if one stock takes a dump, you have a basket full that can take up the slack.

Look at stable ones like:

If you want to get aggressive, there are some paying yields over 8%:

IMO, 3% is terrible.

I'm in on T and CMCSA. As ZZYZZX said above, it seems that now might not be a bad time to pick some more up? CMCSA just had a split in 2017, so take that into account when looking at prior valuation.

Sure, but there is zero risk if you hold to maturity and if the doomsayers are right, rates should come crashing down so you can sell before maturity at a profit. 6% in a dividend stock is nice, not guaranteed, and if you go long on a dividend paying stock, you are exposed to an equity loss if the stock heads down. Ditto a basket of stocks if the market heads down. Diversification is your friend, although it comes down to risk tolerance and the personal need for short or long term returns.

Corruption of democracy is a pretty good indicator of profitability, and perhaps dividends. That is, those companies which pay off our Congressmen to prevent free market competition have an advantage that probably cannot be overcome by more honorable companies using legal means.

Of course, this would then make you party to the corruption, since you'd be profiting from it. But if you want to go that route, just scan this list:

Hey look there's T and VZ and lots of drug companies. No way are those drug companies ever going to have to negotiate with the government on prices as long as this system of blatant bribery continues.

Air Products

Air Liquide

Why all the air-related stocks?

They look pretty good, just wondering what lead you to them.

Isn’t cable TV on it’s way to death?

My first idea would be a mutual fund, several at Vanguard focus on dividends.

For individual dividend paying stocks, the ones Warren Buffet likes come to mind; Coke, Apple, Wells Fargo.

Microsoft, Johnson&Johnson, AT&T, Exxon/Mobil are paying dividends.
