Before getting started, as this is a special week for us on IntelligentSpeculator, the first week of 2011, we will be on a special posting schedule. Every day, we will have 3 posts this week, one about dividends, one technology stock pick and one ETF post.

With 2011 just starting, it’s now a great time to take a look at the top 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. The same stock is back on top of the rankings, although there are some challengers and I would expect things to change in the near future. 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. Then, next week I will take a deeper look into the top picks from that analysis.

What to look for

Over the past few months, we have looked at quite a few criteria that have helped us find the best dividend stocks including current yield, dividend growth and also companies that produce solid enough earnings to keep up the dividend payments. We summed it all up when we discussed the 20 things that we look for in dividend stocks.

No changes at the top as FTR continues to be the top dividend payer, although it continues to pay more than it makes…that will come down at some point. The stock price for Frontier has continued to increase which of course translates into a smaller dividend yield.

In this week’s newsletter, we will be taking a deeper look at the top dividend stocks and how well they fit with the other criteria!

That has its positive and negative aspects but the one clear thing is that you would like to go into more than one sector when building your passive dividend porrtfolio.

We will be filtering out the top 100 list to find the ones that fit all of these criteria! In the meantime, here is the list!
