Having more income than you know what to do with every month. Sounds pretty exciting, huh?

Well, I’m going to give you a crack at it today.

And the cool part is, we’re going to do it with some of the most boring, ho-hum stocks trading on the market right now. They’re not a thrill-a-minute, but the truth is they’re some of the market’s top performers this year.

Buying and holding these picks alone would get you a long way toward Easy Street, but the dead-simple trading strategy I’m going to show you – that anyone can make, whether you’ve been trading for 15 minutes or 15 years – will have you collecting regular payouts as a “kicker”…

These Three Stocks Are the Key This Week

It’s not flashy technology, it’s not red-hot real estate or healthcare, but regular old everyday utilities – water and power – is where we’ll find the best stocks right now.

Take a look at the utilities “Sector Spider,” the Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca: XLU):

The average dividend yield for S&P 500 stocks is 2.5%. Each one of the top 20 stocks in the XLU sector is greater than average. PPL Corp. (NYSE: PPL) is over twice that.

There we have reason No. 2 to buy the cream of this crop: dividends.

From here, you could simply buy the higher dividend stocks and ride the ride… and get paid to do so.

But we can afford to be selective about our stocks, because my proprietary screener has picked out the three best stocks to own here.

Entergy Corp. (NYSE: ETR) is up 12.9% over the past six months and pays a 3.4% dividend. It’s within $4 of 52-week highs, and it’s close to major support and primed for another run up.

EXC) is up more than 16.5% over the past six months and 3.5% over the past month alone. It’s less than $1 away from 52-week highs, and it’s a serious contender to revisit all-time highs above $80. Exelon management will put 3.06% in your pocket every quarter while you wait, too./p pimg loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1185056" src="" alt="" width="550" height="331" srcset=" 550w, a href=""×181.jpg/a 300w, a href=""×45.jpg/a 75w” sizes=”(max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px” title=”” />

Southern Co. (NYSE: SO) has moved up 7.22% over the past six months, and it’s less than $3 from its all-time high. If it reclaims that territory, the sky’s the limit. The payout on this stock is very appealing, too – 4.06%.
