Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks Predictive Analysts Expect to Outperform

Using analyst ratings from Reuters that are presented on a linear scale (with 1 = “Strong Buy” and 5 = “Strong Sell”), we sliced the ratings data of stocks paying dividend yields above 1% and sustainable payout ratios below 50% into three monthly time periods, and identified the groups of analysts that have shown predictive value over two consecutive time periods. We further narrowed down the list by only focusing on those stocks that have seen bullish trends in recent analyst opinion.

Although past performance is no guarantee of future results, the recent accuracy of these analyst ratings suggests their opinions may be a helpful starting-off point for your own analysis. List sorted by dividend yield:
1. Arcelor Mittal (MT)
2. KLA-Tencor Corporation (KLAC)
3. Carnival Corporation (CCL)
4. PPG Industries Inc. (PPG)
5. Eastman Chemical Co. (EMN)
6. BB & T Corp. (BBT)
7. Kohl's Corp. (KSS)
8. CBS Corporation (CBS)
9. Knight Transportation Inc. (KNX)
