There are plenty of places to find high dividend stocks with growth potential if you look hard enough, says Brian Hennessey, portfolio manager for the Alpine Dynamic Dividend Fund. Among Hennessey's favorite dividend paying companies is automobile auctioneer KAR Auction Services, which boasts a yield of 3.6%. Hennessey is also bullish on natural gas pipeline player Williams Companies, which is up this year due to the cold snap, even as the rest of the market is down. Hennessey also says Vodaphone shareholders should stick with the company even after pocketing a special payout from the sale of Verizon Wireless.
