The Top 10 S&P 500 Dividend Stocks for June

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, June 25, 2014 | | 0 comments »

Another month, another all-time high … and another drop in yields on dividend stocks. No one’s complaining about price appreciation, that’s for sure. After stumbling out of the gate, the S&P 500 is up 5.5% for the year, crossing the psychologically reassuring level of 1900 for the first time and now charging toward 2000. But as we’ve noted before, barring a huge increase in dividends paid, rising stocks prices mean lower yields on dividend stocks. Indeed, the market’s dividend yield stands at 1.93%, down from 1.96% a month ago — and 2.07% at this time last year.

Even after hitting new highs, the benchmark index includes dividends stocks yielding anywhere from about 5% to more than 10%. To get a sense of what’s out there among high-yield dividend stocks, here are the top 10 S&P 500 dividend stocks for June: Kinder Morgan (KMI) Yield: 4.8%, Health Care REIT (HCN) Yield: 5%, Teco Energy (TE) Yield: 5%, HCP (HCP) Yield: 5.2%, AT&T (T) Yield: 5.3%, Ensco (ESV) Yield: 5.7%, CenturyLink (CTL) Yield: 5.9%, Transocean (RIG) Yield: 7.04%, Frontier Communications (FTR) Yield: 7.1% and Windstream Holdings (WIN) Yield: 10.3%.
