Dividend Yield: 3.6%

Utility stocks are usually thought of as boring, but there’s nothing boring about the 22% year-to-date gain in shares of power and natural gas provider Sempra Energy (NYSE:SRE). The company is divided into five segments, but its primary money makers are San Diego Gas & Electric, and Southern California Gas Co., the latter of which I am a customer. Of course, the company also operates as an energy holding company throughout the world, and at last count it had some 31 million customers around the globe. This energy/utility giant has a powerful dividend yield of 3.6%, making it a solid yield-producing — albeit boring — stock.
