It is the time once again to do an update of what has become one of the more anticipated posts on IntelligentSpeculator as we do a summary of the best candidates for dividend stocks when investing in the broad US markets and more specifically in the S&P500 index!

As always, I urge investors to look at the dividends offered but also the general health of the company to ensure that they will be able to maintain a high payout! You better look at the entire list to find the rare companies that are not only paying dividends but also who keep taking up their dividend offering a solid long term growth perspective.

As was the case in past months, many communication companies dominate these charts as they have kept up the payments despite being in a rocky environment with lots of competition! I personally would strongly consider a company like Verizon(VZ) which does have issues but is generally still a solid player in the mobile industry and offers a dividend yield close to 7%!

What are your favourites on this list?
