It’s a difficult time to be an income investor. The S&P 500 index has rallied off of its 2020 lows and has returned to near-record highs, pushing the average dividend yield in the index below 2%. In addition, with interest rates near zero, fixed income yields are suppressed as well. The end result is that investors have to look deeper for high-yield stocks. Fortunately, there are still many dividend stocks with yields of 5% or more. And even better, investors do not have to sacrifice quality.
