It is that time again, time to look at the top US 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.

What to look for

Last month, we were looking for companies that look like they will be profitable for some time, have a lot of growth left in them and are solid investments even without the dividend yield. Those companies were obviously good candidates for divided raises as well.

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.

In next week’s newsletter, we will go back and look at the top dividend stocks by sector. Many of the top names are in the communications. 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!

    FTR’s dividend yield is fantastic but what is with the payout ratio. How are they able to do that and for how long?

    @Stephen – No doubt yes, I don’t see this holding up for too long. They are losing cash!
