NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - The 10 large-cap stocks rated A-minus or higher by TheStreet Ratings with the highest dividend yields are all trading close to consensus price targets, but that's no surprise with such solid financials and rich dividend yields.
Starting with companies with market capitalizations exceeding $5 billion rated A-minus (strong buy) or higher by TheStreet Ratings, we pared down the group to the 10 stocks with the highest forward dividend yields, based on the most recent quarterly payout. Not surprisingly, electric utilities and energy service companies dominate the list. Total returns assume reinvested dividends.
