Chevron would be a top choice. Well run. Products always in demand.

I agree. A yield of 3.92% on a stock that shows steady growth potential with constant demand regardless of economic conditions seems to me a perfect example of suggestion I was hoping to get.

Have you thought about EMR?

It is yielding about 3.3% right now. Its' cash flow and dividend are expected to increase this year and in 2020. It's trading under $60 as I'm writing this and Morningstar shows their calculation of EMRs fair value to be about $73.

It produces a range of products for consumers and industry around the world. It has a wide moat and solid financial strength.

Might be worth considering.

I do not like AT&T for two reasons. One they have too much debt. Two I have them for everything landline, cell phones, TV U-verse, and internet. They are a poorly managed company. I have caught them lying about outages. They said during a U-verse outage that a crew was working at an adjacent neighborhood to make the repair. They were not.

They are carrying almost $310 billion in goodwill and intangibles on their balance sheet.

I fear AT&T will be the next Sears, GE, Kodak.

Do not get me wrong. It was not long ago I thought the same as you.

I agree it is worth looking at. I had not thought of the company for years. I used a fair amount of their equipment when I was in manufacturing. It is one of those under the radar companies. I will look at the numbers.

I maintain a portfolio for my handicapped sister in a trust account, and I mirror it in my own IRA. I subscribe to the Contrarian Outlook portfolio for $99/year. Their portfolio is mostly CEFs and a few REITs. It has earned almost 8% in dividends, most paid monthly and the stocks have also increased in value. It's been working for me just fine, but you do have to ride out the dips as long as the dividend is secure.

I also have some addition dividend stocks, including Ford, AT&T, IBM, and others

Is AT&T lying about the outage. The service rep you spoke to is perhaps thousands of miles away, and has no idea of whatís going on locally. Network outages arenít common, but how do you know whether or not a Vrad was down, or perhaps network damage not in your area. This companyís base has been around for about 140 years. Theyíve had their times but have a decent track record.

I also recommend Chevron stock. It has done well and has a decent div. It might be a bit overpriced right now.

Another that I would jump on if I had more money right now is Royal Dutch Shell. Over 6% dividend and it is at a near 52 week low right now. I rode it from the high to the low and still have it.

Both are solid big oil companies and rated as a BUY by Edward Jones.

Because when he told me where the outage was, a small neighborhood adjacent to mine, I rode the entire neighborhood 3 times during the outage. No work being done anywhere.

Later I found out from AT&T that the outage was caused by someone with AT&T making a setting change at a control panel to a dead line.

Add to that their customer service was/is in India. After my repeated assistance the person giving me the run-around has the same accent as the customer service people but said he was in the states. The man that fixed the problem and told me what it was said that had no such work order in that area. Plus said they had no such department.

I am not interested in this thread being highjacked to defend AT&T. I had a simular conversation about GE before it was kicked out of the DOW and still selling in the low 20's.

Well your employer or not what is wrote is true. Part of what I said was BS. BS shot to me by an AT&T employee like you.

Ruger is at 2.1 and is currently down, a lot. I just picked up 25 shares. I look for it to recover and return to 55.00. I remember buying it on margin years ago. The dividend was about a dollar per year. The cost was 10.00 per share and the dividend paid the margin interest bought the stock. Xinyuan Real Estate Co Ltd (XIN) is doing a 10% dividend but the stock is Chinese and the price is pretty much controlled by the Chinese government. Never changes more that a couple of dollars.

Don't forget silver, it's currently selling at less than it costs to mine.
Currently I'd pick proven stocks at rock bottom prices like GE, Mattel, and Freeport-McMoRan. Nowhere to go but up. JMHO

Ruger yield is less than 1.3%. It does not meet the criteria for this thread.

XIN has a negative cash flow, both in total and worse in operations, therefore the 10% dividend is not safe. The high dividend yield as a result of its low price. IMO this is a very speculative stock.

GE yield less than half a percent, does not meet the criterion for the thread and it has a negative cash flow.

Mattel does not pay any dividend does not meet the criterion for the thread.

Freeport-McMoRan pays a dividend around 2% does not meet the criterion for the thread. It also has negative cash flow.

All three are very speculative investments.

All 3 are proven performers that have outperformed all your requirements in the past. If you have more time than money a 7 year cyliclic cycle (common to Oil Stocks) can allow you in on the bottom floor, but then again perhaps you prefer to select stocks at thier current peaks? How much gain do you expect them to have going forward? Hey, the tobacco stocks are cash cows in the dividend world, yet what is thier future potential? Dividend Stocks are Long Term, short term turnover stocks are a totally different item. JMHO.

Junior do you even know how to read an income statement, balance sheet or cash flow statement? It is clear you do not know how to follow instructions. I pay all my bills on interest and dividend while using my social security for spending money.

Have you ever heard the old saying, "Never catch a falling knife"? That is what your three stocks are. I could explain why each has become such a failure but this thread is about solid companies, with good value, free cash flow paying a dividend of 3% or more.

Exactly how much is your livelihood supported by your investments?

I do not invest in alcohol, tobacco, or gaming stocks for moral reasons.

Palm, there may be an angle to this you are not considering.

Every stock seems to have its own trading range. Even stocks that having increasing sales, profits, cash flows and dividends go up and down with no obvious explaination.

For example, take the high price of a stock for each of the last five years and divide that price by that year's cash flow. Then take the average of those P/CF ratios. What you are left with is the average P/CF that the market thinks the stock is worth at the MOST.

But do the same thing with the LOWEST price of the year for each of the last five years. This will tell you the average P/CF the market thinks the stock is worth at the LEAST. That is your buy price.

Every stock, including the stocks of healthy companies, has a normal trading range. Find that range and you have your buy and sell prices.

The only problem now is finding the right companies to buy. I try to buy companies with good trends such as increasing cash flows and dividends. Wide moats and good managements are pluses. I use Morningstar for that information.

Good luck.
