portDividend investing is a huge part of my investment strategy. As I’ve mentioned in my now monthly passive income updates, receiving dividend income from my both my Ultimate Sustainable Dividend portfolio and my ETF portfolio is a primary driver of how my retirement will be like a few decades from now:) Today, I went back to looking for the top dividend stocks from the S&P500!

No surprise in seeing Windstream (WIN) at the top of the list with a yield over 12%. As I always say though, this list is only a starting point. I think you’ll agree with me that paying over 3 times the money it’s making (look at the payout ratio) is not sustainable.  In fact, the top 5 companies are paying out more than they can afford!! DO is the top one that doesn’t but when I looked at a few names in our free newsletter, DO looked weaker than HCP. If ever you’d like to get free analysis, please subscribe to our newsletter here:
