Dividends4Life: Top Dividend Stocks

Top Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Sunday, July 01, 2012 | | 0 comments »

We decided to take a closer look at the dividend-paying stocks our Ultimate Stock-Pickers were holding at the end of the most recent period. As it stands now, only four of the mutual fund managers on our list of top managers-- Amana Trust Income (AMANX), Columbia Dividend Income (LBSAX), Oakmark Equity & Income (OAKBX), and Parnassus Equity Income (PRBLX)--focus on income investing.

Looking more closely at the top 10 holdings of each of these funds, Columbia Dividend Income has the most stocks in its top 10 holdings with yields above the benchmark index. Of the nine stocks that had yields in excess of the S&P 500 Index, AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), Merck (MRK), Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), Pfizer (PFE), and Philip Morris International (PM) were all yielding more than 3.0% at the end of last week.
