net-neutrality-21Today, I’m back with a look at the top dividend stocks (in terms of yield) in the S&P500. As is often the case, 4 of the top 9 names (WIN, CTL, T, FTR) are in the telecom space and will end up being impacted by the ruling regarding net neutrality. I’ll personally be very interested to read more about the impact over the entire industry and how it will impact some players more than others. Something that will be discussed more over time.

Who Rises To The Top?

I often talk about the danger of looking at the top of these rankings to find the best dividend plays and that companies often end up high on these lists because their stock price declines due to bad results. Just take a look at the performance of the top 4 names on this list over 6 months.

Scary right? The #5 name though has a more encouraging chart:
