What an innocuous headline...

7 safe securities that yield more than 4%

Eveans and his team analyze more than 7,000 securities worldwide but only buy names that offer payouts no less than double the yield of the overall stock market — as well as reasonable valuation and competitive advantages that will keep earnings growing over time.

Sounds like a pleasant article to read, no?

Well, it turns out that the companies that they are recommending you invest in are:

  • Cigarette companies (Philip Morris)
  • Oil companies (Vanguard Resources, Williams Partners)
  • Leveraged buyout specialists (KKR)

I guess the good news is that they didn't include any arms dealers or pesticide manufacturers.
