High-Yield Blue-Chip Banks

Jacob Harper |

Dividend investing can be a safe, effective way to play the market. Many companies are loathe to pay out too much of a guaranteed return to investors, assuming they want to keep the money to spend it on themselves.

But that’s not always the case –- at least outside of America. When we looked to see what large bank stocks paid over a five percent dividend, we found that there were zero located inside the US that fit that description.

However, we found five foreign banks that trade within the US and  fit the bill. They are:
