6 Climbing High-Yield Dividend-Paying Stocks

JNJ Dividend Yield Chart JNJ Dividend Yield data by YCharts

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ - Get Report)

Background: The world's sixth-largest consumer health company. The headquarters is in New Brunswick, N.J..

52-Week Range: $61.71 to $72.74

Price to Book: 3.4

Earnings Payout Percentage: 77%

I have written many bullish articles about or including J&J, and the company keeps going like the energizer bunny. J&J features an oversized dividend yield of 3.4% along with an investor pleasing upward trajectory price chart.

The company currently pays $2.44 in dividends, but after adjusting the estimated 2013 earnings, the payout ratio falls to under 50%.

J&J's moving averages are clearly in a bullish trend, however, unlike Dow, J&J has climbed at a more moderate pace. The current trading range doesn't necessitate waiting for a price retracement. Investors may fire at will and gain exposure when convenient.

The one-year return is 2.8%, and the average analyst target price for Johnson & Johnson is $75.41. With short interest above 5%, investors will want to monitor changes to know if short sellers turn up the warning signals. Otherwise, the current 5% of the float short is relatively small and not a major concern. JNJ Payout Ratio TTM Chart JNJ Payout Ratio TTM data by YCharts
