Almost everyone loves a company that pays high dividends. Who doesn’t like getting a check every quarter just for owning a stock – especially when that stock pays you back 4%, 5%, or even 10% of its share price in annual earnings every year? In a world where 10-year government bonds yield just over 2%, it seems difficult to go wrong buying a stock that is well above fixed income rates. Unfortunately, the market rarely offers a free lunch.

While high yield stocks can be very attractive in the short term, those same high yields can often indicate significant danger. In some cases, this may mean the company’s dividend is no longer growing, or not growing as fast as it used to be. Worse still, the company could cut its dividend, reduce the income from owning the stock, and lower the value of the stocks you own.

Returns greater than 4% seem like an easy opportunity to increase the investment income you’ve generated, but high yield stocks can just as often be a trail to captivate unsuspecting investors. However, it is not always easy to tell the difference.

This slideshow shows 10 high yield dividend stocks that are paying an unsustainably high percentage of their earnings in the form of a dividend. These companies all pay out more than 100% of their earnings per share in dividends, a sign that the high returns they advertise are unlikely to last.
