CenturyLink: Don't Ignore These Yields

Even after a large rally following a big Q4 earnings beat, CenturyLink (CTL) offers investors a large 7.5% dividend yield. Investors continue to overlook the telecom due to a lack of a wireless network, but high-speed Internet and pay-TV services provide for stable revenues. 

For 2015, the company returned $2 billion to shareholders though the stock only has a market cap now of $16 billion. The stock isn't going to provide growth, but the yields far exceed what the government offers and the stability far exceeds anything in the energy sector these days. 

Investors should buy the stock, especially if the market provides any dips next week.
