I Like Beer (and Dividends)
I usually think 'large-cap' when looking for stable, dividend paying stocks. To get a little outside the box, I tried screening for mid-cap income stocks with lower than market volatility, good yield, reasonable valuation, 4 or 5-star CAPS ratings and earnings growth over past few years. The screen turned up a total of 15 names, including seven profiled in the article.
Of the seven, I think TAP looks the most interesting. I seem to recall looking at it some time ago and thinking it was expensive. I may not be remembering correctly (always possible), but it's definitely not expensive now. 11-ish times earnings, 3% yield, and right around book value - Molson Coors is worth a little more digging and a CAPS green thumb.
Besides, in the words of a Tom T. Hall song, I Like Beer.
