cherryDividend 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:)

Here is the list!

It’s Not All About Yield

Of course, as I always mention, dividend yield is one criteria but there’s a lot more involved here and finding a stock with strong overall fundamentals is key. I generally try to get stocks that respect the 7-7-7 rule. That is 7% of 5 year growth in dividends, earnings and sales.  If I remove those with a payout ratio over 80%, I get very few results:
