NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Meredith (MDP - Get Report), Telecom Corporation of New Zealand (NZT) and CenturyLink (CTL - Get Report) are among the ten stocks that are likely to generate attractive returns and have upsides ranging between 12% to 21%, as per analysts polled by Bloomberg.

These 10 high-yielding dividend stocks spread across varied sectors not only have a strong track record of dividend payouts but also have raised their latest quarterly distributions. The companies' strong outlook for 2011 supports robust cash flows.
10. Archer Daniels Midland (ADM - Get Report) engages in procuring, transporting, storing, processing, and merchandising of agricultural commodities and products. The company operates in three main segments: Oilseeds Processing, Corn Processing, and Agricultural Services.

The company recently raised its quarterly dividend by 6.7% to 16 cents per share.
