100 highest dividend yielding stocks

Updated on February 27, 2010

Advice on Dividend Stocks

It is tempting to invest your money in some of the100 highest dividend yielding stocks. Most people will just blindly buy into the few with the highest yield.

Here is the problem. I have found stocks that claim a 68% dividend return. If I were to buy that stock, I would never get a single dividend payment.

In most cases, the stock was once priced maybe 10 times higher than it is now and they stopped paying a dividend. But the stats are now calculating the old dividend in relation to the new price.

Below I have listed the 100 highest dividend yielding stocks.

Truthfully I would not buy any of them. I would not touch any stock claiming to pay more than 6% in these economic times.

I would advise reading the report what to do when the dollar collapses
