Posted by D4L | Wednesday, May 14, 2014 | | 0 comments »

Sixteen weeks into 2014, the Dow, Nasdaq and Russell 2000 are all down year-to-date, while the S&P 500 is only ahead by about 1.5%. The market is dealing with some genuine obstacles that weren’t prevalent at the end of 2013, as worries over Russia’s annexation of Ukraine, slowing in China’s economy, Japan’s anemic exports, deflationary pressure in Europe and Fed tapering are weighing on investor sentiment.

These top 10 highest-yielding Dow dividend stocks, or “Dogs of the Dow,” pay out sizable yields ranging from 3.10% to 5.25%, and they’re often less susceptible to market downtrends, which makes them ideal holdings when so many traders are confused about which sectors of the market can still produce a return on investment. Here are the top 10 Dow dividend stocks by yield for April: Procter & Gamble (PG), Merck (MRK), Chevron (CVX), McDonald’s (MCD), Pfizer (PFE), General Electric (GE), Cisco (CSCO), Intel (INTC), Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T).
