Dividend Yield: 4.5%

Traditionally, telecom stocks have been extremely boring but stalwart dividend plays. These days, there’s a lot of action in telecom, especially on the wireless front. Still, I consider a company like Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ) a boring company that pays an anything-but-boring 4.5% dividend yield. The stock is up 13.8% so far in 2012, so along with that high yield, you also get to dial up some very strong share price appreciation.

As of this writing, Jim Woods did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
