Best Dividend-Paying Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 04, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Best of the Dow- Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX): While AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) has the highest yield in the Dow, its payout ratio is over 200%, immediately dropping it from our list. Chevron sports a dividend yield of 3.5% with a very nice 26% payout ratio. The one-year target price for Chevron is $124, almost a 20% premium from the current $103.45 share price. Chevron has increased its dividend for 24 consecutive years. If it keeps that streak up next year it will join the elite Standard & Poor's "Dividend Aristocrat" list of companies that have raised dividends for 25 straight years.

Best Tech - Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC): Since Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) has not yet issued its dividend and cannot qualify for the list I decided to go with Intel as the leading tech dividend-paying stock. Intel currently offers a 3.2% yield and has a payout ratio just above 35%. In a sector that doesn't have a lot of dividend-paying companies, Intel stands out with its dividend history. Over the past 20 years Intel has increased its annual dividend 18 times. Intel is up 14% in 2012 and has a target price of $30, a 9% premium from its current price to go along with its dividend yield.
