Now, following a six-year bull market, the markets look like inflated valuations in traditional income areas such as real-estate investment trusts, master limited partnerships and utilities.
The highest yields on the stock market are paid by telecoms, tobacco stocks, MLPs, REITs or other high debt-loaded or risky business models. But those yields are falling if you look at the Reynolds yield which was a few years ago over 5 percent is now close to the 3 percent ratio.
I've written in the past about stocks that might pay a higher dividend in the future. In my view, it's much better to buy low yielding stocks with potential to hike future dividends. Not only by rising payouts, more by growing the revenues and income.
I’m more of a dividend-aware investor than just a dividend investor, and I don’t own yield for yield’s sake.
Today I like to introduce 10 lower yielding stocks with a high potential to hike dividends. My main criteria are low debt, little payout ratios and future growth.
