Six Bullish Stocks Will Pay You High Dividends

GE Chart GE data by YCharts

General Electric (GE - Get Report)

Background: General Electric operates as a technology and financial services company worldwide. The company was founded in 1892 and is headquartered in Fairfield, Conn.

52-Week Range: $14.68 to $23.18

Book Value: $11.38

Price to Book: 2

Earnings Payout Percentage: 55%

Investors receive 68 cents a year in dividends for a yield of 3%. After slashing the dividend in 2009, GE has come back strong. About three years ago, GE started moving the dividend rate higher again, and you just can't buy a more global, solid company with a bigger yield. If you want to improve your long-term investing success, you really should take a look at GE's history.

GE Dividend Chart GE Dividend data by YCharts

The one-year return is 39%. The average analyst current target price for General Electric is $24.69. Short sellers are not interested in betting against this one. Short interest is a nonfactor at a rate of 0.7% of the float.

This time next year I expect to write about GE and what a great buy it was under $30 a share.
