Dividend Paying Stocks

Income Investing and Dividend Stocks

Dividend stocks are a major factor in the total return of the stock market. About 3,000 U.S. stocks pay a dividend at any given time, but not all dividends are created equally. The most successful dividend investors seek dividend paying stocks that have the potential to grow their dividend each year.

Below, you'll find a list of high dividend stocks as well as a calendar of stocks about to pay a dividend. Additionally, you find dividend stock picks from seasoned income investors as well as TheStreet's own Dividend Stock Advisor, David Peltier. Click here for a free-trial of Dividend Stock Advisor.
