How we chose the stocks
How we chose the stocks

Bond yields are relatively low right now. So if you're looking for something that pays you a steady income stream, you might be better off with a stock that offers a high dividend.

We sifted through thousands of stocks to bring you five that will pay a healthy dividend over the long haul and should also post steady, if not spectacular, earnings growth.

Each company has the potential to stand up reasonably well in this rocky market. Plus, all five companies have consistently increased their dividends over the past five years. What's more, they all have strong balance sheets...so they are likely to keep boosting their dividends in the years to come.
