Recently, David Peltier ( Dividend Stock Advisor) responded to a round of timely questions.

Here are a few of those questions and Peltier's answers.

  • I am putting together a high dividend portfolio that includes the followingstocks Terra Nitrogen (TNH)...BP (BP)... Bristol Myers Squibb (BMY)... Verizon (VZN)... Wastco (WSO)... (full list of tickers)

    Do you think that these companies can sustain their dividends? Which dividend payouts are in the greatest danger?
  • Peltier: Not including the REITs real estate investment trusts and MLPs master limited partnerships, which usually have fixed payout ratios based on production, that Watsco has the most risk. To read more, visit Stockpickr.com.

  • On the more speculative side, what is the likelihood that Wells Fargo (WFC) willcontinue to pay dividends on its preferred stock (WFC-L)?
  • Peltier: Wells Fargo hasn't even cut the dividend on its common yet. To read more, visit Stockpickr.com.

    Thursday, in midday trading, shares of Wells Fargo were recently trading at $8.20 (down 15.1% for the day; down over 32% for the week).

  • About time you cut that dividend, General Electric ( GE)?
