Dividends4Life: High Dividend Stocks for Large Cap Investors

Dividend payments are not guaranteed, and are dependent, in large part, on the company’s ability to generate free cash flow and pay dividends and interest to senior securities holders. Debt covenants and poor future prospects can also restrict the ability of companies to pay out dividends in the future. Among the companies on this list, Nokia’s dividend payments going forward are obviously at risk. Dividend yield is calculated as (Most Recent Full-Year Dividend) / (Current Share Price). This means that the dividend yield moves inversely to the stock price: as the stock price declines, the dividend yield goes up, and vice versa. High dividend yields may be the result of a company’s stock declining due to adverse market conditions.

The following 10 stocks have the highest dividend yield among all companies whose market capitalization is at least $10 billion: 1 Telecomunicacoes de Sao Paulo (VIV), 2. Annaly Capital Management, Inc. (NLY), 3. iShares Barclays TIPS Bond Fund (TIP), 4. Banco Santander SA (STD), 5. Telefonica, S.A. (TEF), 6. Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA (BBVA), 7. National Grid PLC (NGG), 8. Nokia Corporation (NOK), 9. YPF Sociedad Anonima (YPF) and 10. AstraZeneca PLC (AZN).
