We prefer high dividend stocks since they generally perform better and usually increase dividend payments over the next 5-10 years. Some sectors contain many high dividend stocks and may appear attractive to dividend lovers. In these sectors stocks' performances are usually more robust and correlated with higher dividend yields within.

Utilities sector is one of the high dividend yielding sectors. We compiled a list of top 30 U.S. Utilities Stocks (the sector classifications are sourced from Finviz) by market cap and ranked them based on their 12-month dividend yields. We strongly believe that these 30 stocks as a portfolio will beat the 10-year Treasury bonds. It is also very likely that the outperformance will be substantial. Investors should consider building a diversified portfolio of high dividend utilities as an alternative to investing in long-term government bonds.
