That&s;s &q;big dividends&q; in the relative sense.
With the U.S. 10-year Treasury rate at 2.7%, then stocks paying more than a 4% dividend yield are of interest. An equity has more risk intrinsically than a government bond — if you&s;re willing to accept that, then you may find the higher yield a more attractive choice.
All of the stocks listed here have low price/earnings ratios. Again, that&s;s in the relative sense. Since the p/e of the Standard &a;amp; Poor&s;s 500 is about 30 and the p/e of the Russell 2000 is 89, I&s;m calling a p/e of less than 15 &q;small.&q;
&l;strong&g;Alliance Bernstein&l;/strong&g; is in the business of managing financial assets. The price/earnings ratio is 10.9 and the dividend yield is 9.05%.

Monday was a generally down day on Wall Street, with major benchmarks giving up early-morning gains to finish modestly lower. Most market participants focused the bulk of their attention on deteriorating financial conditions in Turkey, with signs that the plunge in the value of the nation’s currency could have impacts across the globe. For instance, Argentina had to boost a key interest rate by 5 percentage points to 45% in order to defend its own currency, and in the U.S., financial stocks were generally under some pressure as investors tried to assess possible exposure if the Turkish crisis extends outward. Even with those difficulties, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN), Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE:DBD), and Antares Pharma (NASDAQ:ATRS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
