The Best Dividend Paying Mega-Capitalized Stocks

Mega-capitalized stocks, companies with a market capitalization over USD200 billion, are very rare. Only 12 companies are listed on the stock exchanges and 9 pay dividends. Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B) are the only stocks with no dividend payments. Apple recently announced to pay a regular quarter dividend of USD2.65, representing a yield of 1.76 percent. What I like to say is that mega caps are well diversified and big dividend payers.
