Six Bullish Stocks That Pay High Dividends

Stocks in this article: ABT CVX LLY MO VZ PFE

CVX Payout Ratio TTM Chart CVX Payout Ratio TTM data by YCharts

Chevron Corporation (CVX)

52-Week Range: $86.68 to $113.87

Yield: 3.21%

Investors are receiving $3.60 a year in dividends. Over the last five years, the dividend has grown by an average of 9% per year. The payout ratio, based on estimated earnings of more than $12 this year, is very small. It's not easy to imagine anything short of cold fusion disrupting the flow of profits out of the ground and into your portfolio for the foreseeable future.

Chevron's chart isn't the best looking chart in this list. The relative stability of Chevron's share price makes it clear that even a slow uptrend can have advantages. Last week wasn't kind to shareholders, but after the previous two months, it appears that normal profit-taking may provide a window of opportunity.

The last reported short interest is tiny. Short interest is 1.1%.

Background: Chevron is the fifth-largest integrated energy company in the world. The company was founded in 1879 and trades a recent average of 4.9 million shares per day with a marketcap of $219.5 billion.

Eli Lilly & Co. (LLY)

52-Week Range: $34.94 to $44.67

Yield: 4.5%

Investors are receiving $1.96 in dividends for a yield of 4.62%. Reviewing the dividend payment history of a company is essential research. While past payments don't guarantee future dividends, the history does provided color. Over the last five years, the dividend has grown by an average of 4.1% per year.

Eli Lilly appears to have no problem maintaining the current dividend, and based on the dividend growth history during the past five years, Eli Lilly appears able to continue the dividend increases. Eli Lilly is expected to earn $3.38 per share this year.

The last reported short interest is tiny. Short interest is 1.4%.

Background: Eli Lilly discovers, develops, manufactures and sells products in one significant business segment: Pharmaceutical products. Eli Lilly was founded in 1876 and trades a recent average of 5 million shares per day with a marketcap of $50 billion.
