There has been a carnage in staples, this year. Some of these have high dividends (MO, PM, KO, PEP, CL, PG, GIS, Kraft/Heinz, MDLZ and so on).
Add to the mix AMLP (8.9% dividend; Pipeline ETF), Spectra energy (8% or so dividend). L brands, Hanes Brands (both 5-6% dividend), GSK, Reckitt Benckiser, IMBBY (Imperial Brands, tobacco), RHBBY (Roche), Sanofi Winthrop, one gets a nice dividend generating portfolio.
The above portfolio, would throw around 5% give or take, based on a “back of a paper napkin” calculation.
So, what is wrong with the picture?
