Top 100 Dividend Stocks – February 2013 Edition

February 5, 2013

Dividend 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 am back with our list of the top 100 dividend stocks from the S&P500 and we have a familiar name still on top.

Pitney Bowes (PBI)

Pitney Bowes is dominating the list but as you can see in the chart below, despite a bit of an increase lately, the stock has not been doing so well in the past year or so, which is certainly not a great sign of things to come. Will the company be able to keep up its high dividend yield in the face of tougher economic times?

There Is Value In High Yielding Stocks

As member of the mailing list know, I am currently working on a special high yield dividend project which should be published soon, I’ve already exchanged a few emails and gotten over 100 answers back… I’m in the process of putting it all together! If you’re interested in finding out more, I recommend that you join our mailing list, it’s free!

In the meantime, here is the list!
