Dividends4Life: What the Best Dividend Stocks of 2014 Tell Us About Their Industry

Dividend stocks remain more popular than ever, and given the edge that these high-income investments provide shareholders with both regular payouts and share-price appreciation, the popularity of dividend stocks isn't the least bit surprising. What is surprising, though, is that the best dividend stocks of 2014 so far have all come from the same industry. And what's happening in that industry sheds some light not only on those stocks, but on dividend investing more broadly.

Rural telecoms have combined lucrative dividends with impressive returns in 2014. Windstream (NASDAQ: WIN) has led the way with a nearly 50% gain since the beginning of the year, and its almost 9% dividend yield leads its peers. Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) has done almost as well, with a 49% gain to go along with its 6% dividend yield. CenturyLink (NYSE: CTL) brings up the rear but still weighs in with a strong 36% jump to supplement its 5.2% yield.
