Philip Morris' Ultra-Safe Dividend

In total, my team found 227 common stocks paying dividends of 12% or higher. But only 17 of these companies were located in the United States. The other 210 were located in international markets.

Action to Take --> This means if you want high-yielding stocks, then 92% of your opportunities are located outside the United States. But don't worry, you can buy many of these without even leaving the U.S. markets.

I have more details -- including several names and ticker symbols -- in a presentation I recently put together. Visit this link to read it now. ( http://web.streetauthority.com/m/hy-intl/2012/ehna12/forget-treasuries-sample.asp?TC=HN0669 ) In the presentation, I've even included the full list of the 17 U.S. companies yielding above 12%.
