CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Monday gave traders a listing of 5 “accidentally high yielders” that he believes will present traders refuge within the presently unpredictable market.
“At the depths of the  financial crisis, you got an amazing opportunity to buy the accidentally high yielders … real companies with stable dividends that had seen their stocks come down so far that their dividends were sporting ridiculously high yields versus the old days. This moment’s becoming similar,” the “Mad Money” host stated.
“It’s worth sticking with the stock market as long as you stick with the right groups and avoid the wrong ones — wrong ones being unprofitable tech companies or any other richly valued momentum stocks that have long since lost their momentum,” he added.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.08% on Monday whereas the S&P 500 dropped 0.39%. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite fell 1.2%.

“Of these, [Simon Property Group is] the only one I still feel confident about. … We came in too early, and we were too confident about retail. I’m not making that mistake again,” he stated. “At the same time, even a high dividend isn’t enough to support a stock in a bad sector.”
“That’s why we need to high-grade our accidental high-yielder portfolio,” he added.
