Three Dividend Paying Value Stocks

AT&T (T - Get Report)



Background: AT&T is a premier communications holding company. Its subsidiaries and affiliates, AT&T operating companies are the providers of AT&T services in the U.S. and around the world.

Ma Bell is near the 52 week high, and we can anticipate a resistance level test within the next few weeks. If you're not holding some AT&T now, and don't feel comfortable buying when the price is "this high," at least place the ticker on your watch list for a buy into a dip.

The company has a rich history of rising dividend payments, and I see no reason why that will change in the near future. Investors are receiving $1.80 in dividends for a yield of 4.7%. Almost like clockwork, AT&T raises their dividend, and we appear closer to the next dividend hike than the last one.

The payout ratio, a key metric I pay attention to based on forward earnings estimates is about 55%. The payout ratio is higher than I would prefer, but well within my tolerance level.

The last reported short interest is paltry and without reason to consider it a significant influence at only 1.7% of the average trading float. Short interest under 2% is bullish for a rising stock.
