Investors once again are snapping up high-dividend-paying U.S. stocks as Treasury yields fall, which should keep utilities and telecom stocks near the top of the buying list for the near future. The S&P 500 utility sector (.SPLRCU), whose dividend yield at 3.9 percent is more than 100 basis points above the 10-year Treasury yield , led the S&P 500’s advance on Friday after concern about the launch of U.S. air strikes on Iraq drove the benchmark bond yield to 14-month lows. Any global worries that keep a bid in government debt, meanwhile, will motivate investors to go after stocks with fat dividend yields.
