3 High-Yielders for Passive Income & Portfolio Protection 

Investing in dividends can always provide a stable income source and portfolio growth opportunities. Dividends have been responsible for around 40% of the total return of the S&P 500 over the last century; Historically speaking, dividend-paying equities have outperformed businesses that don’t offer a dividend through their stock. However, a high quarterly payout or annual dividend yield cannot rescue a stock that doesn’t offer a return on investment or one that represents a firm with poor metrics. 

Poorly performing companies that pay consistent, generously distributed dividends don’t interest me. It probably shouldn’t interest anyone because, although passive income may be nice, one still has to pay a literal price for each share. If there aren’t other positive factors, even the smartest investor can still lose 

a potential return on their investment. The stocks on today’s list have other things going for them; the most exciting is that they show extraordinary promise in addition to their decent yields and payouts. 

I’ve landed on three inexpensive dividend-payers that each offer lucrative payouts given their pricing, in addition to receiving bullish sentiment from the experts. Let’s break them down: 

Charles Schwab Corp (SCHW) 

Charles Schwab Corp. (SCHW) is a financial advisory and asset management firm. SCHW offers corporate brokerage services to businesses and their employees, as well as retail brokerage and banking services to individual investors.

SCHW shows TTM (trailing twelve months) revenue of $23.8 billion at $3.67 per share, and it profited $7.2 billion in the same period, with a net profit margin of 32%.

Pfizer Inc. (PFE) 

Pfizer Inc. (PFE) researches biopharmaceuticals worldwide. PFE develops, markets, and distributes medications. PFE’s aim is to advance treatments and cures for ailments of all kinds in established and developing nations. Charles Pfizer Sr. and Charles Erhart founded PFE in 1849, and it is based in New York. PFE is getting a lot of attention from analysts right now; its stock is down by 24.96% YTD, yet it shows great strength. With a safe 0.62 beta, PFE has a market cap of just over $218 billion, a P/E ratio of 7x, a D/E (debt to equity) of 37.45%, and an ROE (return on equity) percentage of 36.29%. PFE shows TTM revenue of $93 billion at $5.07 per share, from which it profited $31.4 billion with a 31.28% net margin. Earnings-wise, PFE recently surpassed analysts’ EPS and revenue forecasts by 24.68% and 10.88%, respectively. PFE has a dividend yield of 4.27%, with a quarterly payout of 41 cents ($1.64/yr) per share. With a 10-day average trading volume of 23.78 million shares, PFE has a median price target of $45, with a high of $75 and a low of $40. This shows robust upside potential from its existing 52-week range, going as high as an over 95% price increase from PFE’s current position. PFE has 13 buy ratings and 12 hold ratings. I can only speak for myself, but I see a nice opportunity with PFE’s current dip.
