Seeking Return: Smaller Companies with Big Div Yields


You probably know a majority of Dow companies have a dividend yield that’s higher than the 10-year. But did you some smaller companies generate yield, too?

Bespoke Investment Group compiled a list of high yielding S&P 500 stocks – both big and small -- about to pay dividends. (Click here to see the list.) And from the list the Fast Money traders revealed their favorites.

Mike Murphy's Pick
UNS Energy
Ex-Date                      6/6/2012
Dividend Amount           $0.43
Yield                           4.59%

“They’re raising their dividend which is something I think is really key and they’re raising prices which should generate upside in the stock,” says Murphy.


Brian Kelly’s Pick
Golar LNG
Ex-Date                      6/11/2012
Dividend Amount           $0.35
Yield                          4.27%

“I like the prospects of exporting LNG around the world. That should really pick up,” explains  Kelly.


Joe Terranova’s Pick
Williams Companies

Ex-Date                      6/6/2012
Dividend Amount           $0.30
Yield                          4.14%
Source: Bespoke Investment Group

Partly a technical trade, Joe Terranova says, “It’s sitting right above the 200-day moving average of $27.16 and the stock hasn’t broken the 200-day since October. Also he says fundamentally the company is crushing it, the 3-year growth rate is above 20%.
