four-seasons-boraboraDividend 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 find the top dividend plays in the S&P500! The top of the top is similar to what I saw last month but as you know, there’s a lot more than yield that counts:)

Find Out More

3 of the top 5 names on this month’s list are telecoms which tend to offer very high payouts but have struggled in terms of overall return. The two others, DO and ESV are oil and gas drilling companies which certainly have high potential as well. In the top 15, only 2 names are not telecoms or energy plays. One was featured last month (HCP) while the other (MO) is a tobacco play. Ironic that one is related to health care while the other one is in a business that tends to create health issue.

In the meantime, here is the list!
