Dividends4Life: Top Dow Dividend Stocks

Top Dow Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, June 23, 2010 | | 0 comments »

2010 has been fairly disappointing to investors following the huge market gains experienced in 2009. Sure the Dow Jones index is only down 1% for the year, but 18 of the 30 Dow components have posted losses in 2010. Standout performers from 2009, like Alcoa ( AA ) and Microsoft ( MSFT ), have delivered horrible returns to investors this year. Fortunately, the top Dow dividend stocks have outperformed the broader market. As we have pointed out before, the top Dow dividend stocks don't necessarily include the highest yielding stocks like Verizon or AT&T.

After being one of the worst performing stocks in 2008, Boeing bounced back last year to post a nice 27% gain. However, their performance in 2010 has been even more impressive. The stock has surged 23% since the beginning of the year and many analysts believe this is just the beginning of an up cycle for Boeing. Wall Street is expecting earnings to grow 25% next year. In addition to the strong growth prospects, Boeing also rewards investors with a 2.7% dividend yield.
