Today’s chart shows our favorite place to find top dividend stocks: hedge fund activists. These shareholders earn big returns by shaking up tired businesses. They push for dividend hikes, spin off non-core assets, and hire new management teams. As we’ve pointed out time after time, investing alongside them can result in handsome profits.
