Wow, what a day on the markets it was yesterday. It certainly looks like quality dividend stocks get more expensive on days like today. There are however still great possibilities for dividend investors. One good way to diminish portfolio volatility is to use dividend investing so today we are back with our monthly ranking of the top 100 dividend stocks in the S&P500.

Frontier Communications Corp (FTR)

No big surprise again this month as Frontier Communications Corp (FTR) remains at the very top of our top dividend stocks in the S&P500 with a dividend yield over 13%. The dark side of course remains that the company is paying out much more than it is actually able to make, making that dividend everything but sustainable. In fact, FTR announced earnings of $0.05 per share in its last earnings… that number is much lower than its current $0.1875 dividend per share.
