#10: Teco Energy (TE)
TE Dividend Yield: 5.4%
It’s hardly a surprise to see another electric and gas utility on this list, but please welcome Teco Energy (TE) into the top ten, with a yield well above 5%.
The extended deep freeze hitting much of the country finally gave energy companies a break. Demand for natural gas led to a rise in prices, helping to lift them out of a long period of languishing near historic lows.
Unfortunately, greater energy use hasn’t done anything to support Teco stock this year. TE stock is off 4.6% for the year-to-date.
