6 Climbing High-Yield Dividend-Paying Stocks

DOW Dividend Yield ChartDOW Dividend Yield data by YCharts

Dow Chemical (DOW)

Background: Dow Chemical is a science and technology company that provides innovative chemical, plastic and agricultural products and services to many essential consumer markets.

52-Week Range: $26.77 to $36.08

Price to Book: 2

Earnings Payout Percentage: 88%

TheStreet's Jim Cramer writes about DOW in DOW: Quit Your Bellyaching.

Shareholders receive $1.28 annually in dividend payments. The yield is an enticing 4%. With a payout of nearly 90%, I would normally take a pass, however, 2013 earnings are estimated at $2.44. Based on 2013 estimated earnings, the payout rate will shift downward closer to 50%.

In the last month, Dow jettisoned 40.5% higher and appears mostly on track to continue. Look for a price retracement as an entry signal. With a little patience, an entry near $31.50 is reasonable. I am not a big fan of chasing stocks, and buying north of $32.50 before a base is built feels like chasing to me.

In the last 52 weeks, shares are about even with a small gain of 1%. Dow Chemical has an average analyst target price of $33.00. We are all but there already. I expect we will read about upward moving analyst's price targets in the first quarter 2013.
