Anxiety about global stock markets, triggered by the Chinese economic slowdown and a slump in oil prices, has hammered the U.S. stocks.  Some of the big companies reported earnings in recent weeks, of which Apple (AAPL) reported its most profitable quarter in its history but forecasted for declining sales in March.

Yesterday’s Federal Reserve meeting, the first meeting since the US central bank raised interest rates for the first time in December 2015, confirmed rates would remain at current levels. While interest rates remain so low, investing in dividend paying stocks is an alternative way to increase your income apart from saving.

Investors should consider the current volatility as an opportunity to buy high quality companies which are ‘on sale’. We pick five US stocks that paying an attractive dividend yield, through Morningstar Select.
