These all make perfect sense



Here's a few US stocks and their dividend yields:

Apple - 2.15%
Yum Brands - 2.70%
Union Pacific - 2.98%
Intel - 3.05%
McDonald's - 3.08%
Walmart, believe it or not - 3.08%
Lockheed Martin - 3.10%
General Electric - 3.23%
Proctologist & Gamble - 3.49%
Pfizer - 3.87%
IBM - 3.95%
Qualcomm - 4.19%
Ford - 4.78%

All of those are yielding more than the UST10Y right now.

Some of those companies' futures suck, sure, but others (GE, Apple, UNP, MCD, LMT) are essentially unstoppable world-conquering monopolies that aren't going to go away anytime soon.

Even Walmart, whose stated mission was always to make no money for anyone not named Walton, is now offering a 3% yield.

But hey, please continue selling.
