Lockheed Martin Crosses Above 3% Yield Territory

Looking at the universe of stocks we cover at Dividend Channel, in trading on Tuesday, shares of Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) were yielding above the 3% mark based on its quarterly dividend (annualized to $6.00), with the stock changing hands as low as $199.43 on the day. Dividends are particularly important for investors to consider, because historically speaking dividends have provided a considerable share of the stock market's total return. To illustrate, suppose for example you purchased shares of the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) back on 12/31/1999 — you would have paid $146.88 per share. Fast forward to 12/31/2012 and each share was worth $142.41 on that date, a decrease of $4.67/share over all those years. But now consider that you collected a whopping $25.98 per share in dividends over the same period, for a positive total return of 23.36%. Even with dividends reinvested, that only amounts to an average annual total return of about 1.6%; so by comparison collecting a yield above 3% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable. Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) is an S&P 500 company, giving it special status as one of the large-cap companies making up the S&P 500 Index.

EWBC Breaks Above 2% Yield Territory

Looking at the universe of stocks we cover at Dividend Channel, in trading on Tuesday, shares of East West Bancorp, Inc (NASD: EWBC) were yielding above the 2% mark based on its quarterly dividend (annualized to $0.80), with the stock changing hands as low as $39.89 on the day. Dividends are particularly important for investors to consider, because historically speaking dividends have provided a considerable share of the stock market's total return. To illustrate, suppose for example you purchased shares of the iShares Russell 3000 ETF (IWV) back on 5/31/2000 — you would have paid $78.27 per share. Fast forward to 5/31/2012 and each share was worth $77.79 on that date, a loss of $0.48 or 0.6% decrease over twelve years. But now consider that you collected a whopping $10.77 per share in dividends over the same period, increasing your return to 13.15%. Even with dividends reinvested, that only amounts to an average annual total return of about 1.0%; so by comparison collecting a yield above 2% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable. East West Bancorp, Inc (NASD: EWBC) is a member of the Russell 3000, giving it special status as one of the largest 3000 companies on the U.S. stock markets.
