Jim Cramer Loves These 7 Stocks for Their Dividends

Jim Cramer says there are seven stocks that he especially likes for dividends.
Publish date:
  • American Electric Power (AEP) - Get Report . "At 3.6% [yield], I would buy that one," the stock-picker said.
  • EPR Properties (EPR) - Get Report . The stock-picker called this real estate investment trust "terrific," noting that it currently yields about 5.5%.
  • General Electric (GE) - Get Report . Cramer called the industrial giant a "good yielder ... We're being paid to wait for the turn because of that dividend." He said GE doesn't appear to have the cash to increase its dividend "the way I like," but Cramer said he's sticking with the stock anyway because "the assets are worth more than [the shares] are selling for."
  • Magellan Midstream Partners (MMP) - Get Report . Cramer said he "loves" MMP at its current 4.4% dividend yield.
  • PepsiCo (PEP) - Get Report . The stock-picker called this soft-drink giant a "good yielder."
  • Six Flags Entertainment (SIX) - Get Report and Cedar Fair (FUN) - Get Report. Amusement-park giant Six Flags is member of the Action Alerts PLUS "bullpen" of stocks that Cramer is considering buying for his charitable trust. "I really like [SIX]," he said. "I've met with the company every quarter." Cramer added that he also favors rival amusement-park operator Cedar Fair. "That's a good one," he said.
