With the average S&P 500 dividend yield higher than the 1.8% ten-year Treasury yield, and some pundits warning of a possible bubble in bonds, many investors are turning to dividend-paying stocks for income heading into next year. Morningstar today taps some of its favorite stock pickers to name their top ten dividend stock picks, and the resulting list is heavy on healthcare companies (plus one cigarette maker that can help land you in the hospital).

Without further ado, the top 10: GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), ConocoPhillips (COP), Intel (INTC), Eli Lilly (LLY), Novartis (NVS), Merck (MRK), Philip Morris (PM), Pfizer (PFE), Sysco (SYY) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ).
