Finally, I like Kimberly-Clark ( KMB), which is currently trading around $89.53. Even though the stock is changing hands near its all-time highs, the company's 3.3% yield is at the high end of the industry range.

Kimberly-Clark pays out $0.74 a share each quarter and telegraphed the 41st consecutive dividend increase last month, when management posted strong quarterly results last month. Even though the company is also trading near all-time highs, the above-average dividend yield will likely continue to attract investors as the stock moves up toward the triple digits.
