Ah! I have been rather quiet on this blog in the past few weeks haven’t I? A big part of it was being incredibly busy but also having little trading to do. That is about to change as we get ready for the New Year. First off, I’d like to wish all of you a very Happy New 2015 Year. To start off the New Year, before opening a few new long & short trades next week, I wanted to publish a recent edition of the top dividend payers in the S&P500. In my next Ultimate Sustainable Dividend Portfolio update, I’ll certainly start looking for new names to be added and I always find this list to be very useful as a starting point.

Again, I can’t stress enough how this list is only a starting point. Usually, the top players on this list are here because the company is doing poorly, resulting in a declining stock price, but the company has not (yet!) adjusted its dividend payout. Just take a look at TransOcean’s stock chart:


Why is it declining so quickly?

Just take a quick look at these numbers:
