Let's face it, not all of us have time to do exhaustive research to unearth great stocks like McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) or Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV).

But that doesn't mean we can't follow and utilize the work of other smart investors. One way to do this is to track the stock picks of All-Star investors in CAPS, The Motley Fool's interactive stock-rating database.

All-Stars have a rating of 80-plus out of 100, meaning their picks are outperforming 80% of the more than 115,000 CAPS members. The top players have accuracy levels of well over 60%, so it might pay to follow what they do. 

We can easily search for their top picks using the handy CAPS screener. For example, a search for stocks with …  

  • At least 100 All-Star outperform picks.
  • A dividend yield between 4% and 8%.
  • Insider ownership over 10%.

... returned the following:
