The World's Biggest Brands and Their Dividend Payments Researched by “long-term-investments.blogspot.com.” Big brands guarantee a high consumer loyalty and stable cash flows. Big brands and high dividends are no contradiction.

I screened public listed companies that own a global portfolio and set a position of the top 20 global brands researched by Interbrand. Interbrand is a global branding consultancy, specializing in vast brand services, including brand analytics, brand strategy, brand valuation, corporate design, digital brand management and naming. Recently, Interbrand published the results of its 13th annual “Best Global Brands” report 2012 with the top 100 most valuable brands worldwide. Below the 20 best brand stocks are 17 with positive dividend payments. One company is a high-yield and six yield over 3 percent.
