Best Dividend Stocks of the S&P 500

While you wait--and wait--for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates, you can collect generous checks by investing in dividend stocks. And you don't have to wander far to find attractive payers. Just look at Standard & Poor's 500-stock index. Of its 500 member companies, 84% pay dividends, up from 75% a decade ago. On top of that, many of the index's constituents are rewarding shareholders by boosting their payouts; so far this year, 169 S&P companies have done so.

A list of nine dividend-paying stocks worth owning now. You'll probably recognize most of the high-yielders, but you may be surprised by some of the dividend-growth picks: Accenture's (ACN), Altria (MO), Cummins (CMI), GM (GM), International Paper (IP), Principal Financial (PFG), Rockwell Automation (ROK), Seagate (STX) and Verizon (VZ).
