Best Dividend Stocks of The Decade

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, November 17, 2010 | | 1 comments »

When thinking of dividend stocks, we tend to think of large, boring companies like Wal-Mart or United Parcel Service. These stalwarts will most likely be around in 10 years, still paying you that quarterly dividend, but they will probably never be huge winners. For instance, in this decade, both Wal-Mart and UPS aren't among the top 10 or even the top 100 dividend stocks of the past decade, as measured by total return to shareholders.

If we want to find the best stocks for the next 10 years, it helps to know who performed best for the last 10 years. The decade's best dividend payers had to:

* Pay dividends every year from 2000 to 2010
* Have a market cap higher than $100 million
* Trade on a major U.S. exchange
* Not be an American depositary receipt
