Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Buy Right Now

Most investors buy high-yield dividend stocks because they want the larger income stream these companies provide. However, that bigger cash payout isn’t the only benefit of high-yield stocks. Two others are that they tend to generate higher total returns and aren’t as volatile as other stocks. Those two facts make them ideal investment options for all investors, even younger ones focused on growth.

1. High-yield stocks are more likely to outperform most other stocks

Wellington Management conducted a study of dividend-paying stocks dating all the way back to 1929. It broke them out into five groups by their dividend payout ratios. The first one had the stocks with the highest payout ratios — 70% on average — while the fifth grouping had those with the lowest payout ratios. Given that stocks with higher payout ratios tend to have the highest yields, this research is a good proxy for how high-yield stocks performed over that time frame.
