3 International Income Stocks To Buy For Up To 9% Yield

If you're looking for high-yield dividend stocks, you can't ignore overseas companies.

Limiting your portfolio of income stocks to U.S. stocks alone, you may find yourself overloaded with energy and business development stocks. While there are a few income stocks worth owning in both of these sectors, owning too many would be high-risk.

So today, we're going to branch out and look at to international income stocks to buy. Our top dividend stock here has a yield higher than 9% right now.

That's less than half of the current CAPE of 28 here in the United States.
