3 Low Cost, High Dividend Yield Stocks To Buy Now

Here at Zacks, we don’t generally classify stocks as “cheap” or “expensive”, and rather than looking at the stock’s face value, we have a system that puts an emphasis on earnings estimate revisions to find stocks that will hopefully be winners for investors.

Nevertheless, the appeal of low-cost stocks is apparent. Lower per-share prices mean smaller investors can maintain higher positions, and that’s simply more interesting to a lot of folks. With that said, it also makes sense that these same investors would be interested in stocks with high dividend yields, as these payouts allow for the purchasing of additional shares over time.

Thus, the combination of low costs and high dividend yields seems like a perfect pair to run through the Zacks Stock Screener. Today we’ve highlighted three of these stocks that are also sporting strong Zacks Ranks, and you can check them out below:

1.       Alliance Holdings (AHGP - Free Report) Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy)
