While Treasury yields, especially at the short end of the curve, have improved a great deal recently. Many investors may still be interested in adding some stocks with good dividends to their portfolios. With that in mind, pharma may be a great place to look. The sector is having a tough time this year—down over 6% to-date—but that means dividend yields are looking strong. The sector is averaging 2.9%, but the best payers are near 4%, including some big names. For instance, AbbVie and Pfizer are both yielding 3.7% or over, and both seem to have rock solid outlooks where that dividend is not going to shrink.

FINSUM: These seem to be some great choices. The risk here does not appear to be in the fundamentals, but more related to interest rates.
