High-Dividend Plays for the Gurus

In his latest article for RealMoney, Validea CEO John Reese says his Guru Strategies are finding some strong high-dividend stocks in the market right now.

“The fiscal cliff has been averted, but that does not mean the U.S. economy is out of the woods,” Reese says. ” Further battles over the debt ceiling, spending cuts and Medicare costs, as well European economic uncertainty, are on the horizon. The turmoil makes this a good time to add high-yielding stocks to your portfolio.”

Reese uses his strategies, which are based on the approaches of history’s most successful investors, to find some of the top dividend stocks in the market right now. Among those he highlights: Northern Tier Energy, which has a 5.87% yield and gets strong interest from his Joel Greenblatt-inspired model.
