Yield Plays 10 Beefy stocks to chew over

The companies in this month's shortlist are sorted and selected based on their growth, both past and estimated future, as well as their current dividend and earnings yields. They all have steady histories over the past decade and I'd go so far as to describe them as good companies at good prices.

Balfour Beatty (LON:BBY) FTSE250 HEAVY CONSTRUCTION 8.5 4.4
Interserve (LON:IRV) SMALLCAP BUSINESS SUPPORT SERVICES 7.6 6.0
Mitie (LON:MTO)  FTSE250 BUSINESS SUPPORT SERVICES 10.9 3.8
Carillion (LON:CLLN) FTSE250 BUSINESS SUPPORT SERVICES 9.0 4.4

 

I'm pretty sure that out of this list of companies there's something that I'd be happy to put into my pension fund, in fact I already own four of them.  I'm looking for something where I'd be happy to go to sleep for five years and trust that the investment has one hell of a good change of returning a fair profit in that time.  Or in the words of a rather clever chap,
