6 Bullish Stocks Paying Big Dividends

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- I love collecting dividends. I don't receive physical checks, but the satisfaction from email alerts is just as satisfying.

I also love when the stocks I bought before go up in price. Combining high yields with rising capital appreciation sounds as good a combo as what Reese (HSY) made with peanut butter and chocolate.

I searched through companies, finding stocks that combine high yields along with a rising share price. I am sure by reading through you will find at least one company that fits your investing objectives, plus buying these stocks won't increase your waist size like the very delicious Peanut Butter Cup I ate (strictly as part of my research).

International Paper (IP)

IP Revenue ChartIP Revenue data by YCharts

Background: International Paper is a global paper and forest products company complemented by an extensive distribution system. The company produces printing and writing papers, pulp, tissue, paperboard and packaging, and wood products. The company was founded in 1898 and is based in Memphis, Tenn. International Paper trades an average of 4.6 million shares per day with a marketcap of $15 billion.

52-Week Range: $21.55 - $36.50

Yield: 3.1%

Investors are receiving $1.05 a share in dividend. Examining the dividend history of a company is a great way to help understand what we may expect in the future. While past payments don't guarantee future dividends, reviewing the past is the best way I know to predict the most likely future outcome. The three-year average amount International Paper has distributed to shareholders per year is 57 cents.

The payout rate (percentage of profit paid in dividends) is a manageable 42%, with increasing profits estimated for next year.

The shares are lower this week in reaction to downgrades by more than one analyst. It doesn't appear they lost the Dunder Mifflin account, but there have been a mix of adjustments in earnings estimates in the last couple of months.

From a technical perspective, the chart remains in a strong bull trend, albeit with near-term weakness that increases the attractiveness. After falling about 10% from recent highs, International Paper is priced to buy again. Currently, the short interest based on the float is small and not a big concern. Short interest is 2.1%.
