Top 10 High-Yield Big-Cap Growth Picks

We now move on to Southern Copper (PCU), a Phoenix-based mining company with operations in Peru, Mexico and Chile. Its P/E is 12, and it pays a yield of 6.9%. The stock has paid dividends quarterly for the past 10 years.

Another attractive feature of this stock is that it is a holding of both Zweig Dimenna Partners and Pequot Capital Management. Other top holdings of Pequot include J.C. Penney (JCP - Get Report) and Foster Wheeler (FWLT).

Finally, there's United Utilities (UU), a company that provides electricity, water and wastewater services in the Northwestern part of England. It has a P/E of 32, but its yield is 6%. Dividends have been paid twice a year for the last eight years.

United Utilities has been added to the portfolio of PowerShares Water Resources (PHO), an exchange-traded fund that tracks the Palisades Water index, which invests in the common stocks of companies in the water industry. PHO has returned 17% over the last year. Among its other components are Tetra Tech (TTEK - Get Report) and Danaher (DHR - Get Report).

United Utilities also makes the Stockpickr list of More High Yield Stocks You've Never Heard Of. All this makes it not a bad play to consider.
