This morning is a great time to get started as we post the top dividend stocks in the S&P500. It’s always a popular post not only because of the list itself but also because of the fact that we start from that list when looking for high quality dividend stocks that help us build a passive income portfolio. Every month, we do additional research on specific names both on the blog and in our free newsletter.

If you are interested in finding out what our top dividend stock picks are, simply join our mailing list… It’s free! Next week I will take a deeper look into the top picks from that analysis.



Free Dividend Ebook

We have mentioned the ebook on this blog but it’s been such a major hit that we can’t help but mention it again in case you missed it. You can download the free ebook about dividend investing here.

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.

FTR is once again at the top of our list and while it’s not clear how the stock will perform as a long term dividend play, what is clear is that many of these stocks are probably much better picks if you have a long term perspective. We will discuss how we filter through these in the coming weeks.

Hopefully this will help you when building your passive dividend portfolio.

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!

    @No2L – Not as easy as downloading the data as a spreadsheet but what I do to create a spreadsheet is: highlight the data on the webpage, copy the highlighted data, paste the copied data into a spreadsheet, save the spreadsheet. Done.
