5 Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

If you haven't already gotten choosy when picking your portfolio's sources of income, it's time – and here are five dividend stocks to buy now to help you.

You see, many of the most popular dividend-paying stocks have become pricey amid the markets' year-to-date rallies and the insatiable hunt for yield.

For example, The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO) sports a juicy yield of just under 3%, but looks expensive with a P/E of 22. And The Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG) boasts an appealing 3.12% yield, yet shares trade at a lofty 20 times earnings.

Even with the 10-year Treasury yield approaching 3%, dividend investing is still the best approach.

You see, from 1897 through 2003, 97% of the total after-inflation accumulation from stocks came from reinvesting dividends. Only 3% came from capital gains, according to Jeremy Siegel, Professor of Finance at the Wharton School of Business.
