The 10 Highest Yielding Dividend Contenders

Dividend Contenders are stocks that have raised their dividend payments for more than five years in a row but not more than nine years. One hundred ninety-six companies have achieved this goal of which 33 are yielding above five percent. Here is a brief overview of the 10 best yielding Dividend Contenders. Huge dividends also include a bigger risk of dividend cuts due to the low diversification level. Nearly 60 percent of the results have a market capitalization of less than USD1 billion. Despite the risk, 90 percent have a buy or better rating outstanding.
