It is that time again, time to look at the top US dividend stocks. We’ve done this in past months and it’s been gaining popularity every time as many are like us, trying to build passive income through a dividend portfolio. Those who have been following this list know that we can probably expect the Communications sector to do very well here. They have been the highest yielding stocks for some time now. That being said, I think many other criteria need to be considered when picking dividend stocks and that is why I will be narrowing down the list later this week for our mailing list members. If you are interested in finding out what are top dividend stock picks are, simply join our mailing list it’s free! I expect to send it out later this week.
What to look for
Last month, the priority really was on finding a fairly reliable high dividend yield stock. This time however, we will be putting more emphasis on the consistency of dividend growth as the impact it will have on your dividend portfolio is critical.
Thus, we are looking for stocks that have increased yearly dividends in the past 5 and even 10 years!
In terms of dividend yield only, the top yield is once again held by Frontiers Communications Corp which currently yields close to 10%. Anytime you see a stock that yield that much higher than the others, you know there probably is something wrong! Here is the chart:
We will filtering out the top 100 list to find the ones that fit all of these criteria! In the meantime, here is the list!
