As an investor, it is important to consider all aspects of a potential investment before making a decision. One important factor to consider is the dividend yield. For example, the iShares Russell 3000 ETF (IWV) had a dividend yield of 8% on 5/31/2000. Over the next twelve years, the stock price only decreased by 0.6%. However, the dividend payout increased by 13.15%. This illustrates the importance of considering the dividend yield when making investment decisions.

Even in today's low-yield environment, there are still some stocks that offer investors attractive dividend yields. Here are 10 stocks that currently offer yields of 3% or higher.
