The Case for High-Yield Stocks

On, January 10, 2003, Benjamin Tobias was quoted in the article The Case for High-Yield Stocks by Laura Bruce.  Ben explained, “I would never say take a retiree’s entire fixed income portfolio and put it in GE earning 2.99 percent vs. a money market, but if you were to take a group of twenty high-yielding dividend stocks and put a portion of a retiree’s fixed income into those stocks it could be good.”
