Here are the best dividends that we can find for the US Stocks on Nyse, Nasdaq, etc... if we want to invest on several years rather than just speculate.
Stocks with a market capitalization over 5 billions USD.
Non regular dividend.
With exceptional dividend or partial repurchase.
This top doesn't include the price evolution.
The stocks with an awsome performance will not reverse a lot of dividend.
The performance should be taken into consideration. If the stock has not moved a lot comparing to the others, it maybe means that it is a strong one and it will not evolve too much in the future. If the stock has already lost 80-90% in 5 years, it can maybe be an opportunity also on the yearly return; although it could lost another 80-90%. You have to determine if the inner market related to the company will bounce or not.
Smaller is the market capitalization, bigger is the dividend. Which is not always true.
There is probably three times more stocks with interesting dividends, I have only selected the best.
