6 International Dividend Stocks You Need To Look Into

September 20, 2012 | About:

Today I am back with a deep look into international stocks that could and should be added to your own version of the Ultimate Sustainable Dividend Portfolio. I started off by looking at some of the top listed ADR’s in terms of dividends while staying away from pink sheet stocks! I also removed stocks that did not have a price of $5, etc. That helped me reach a number of stocks that certainly have solid potential for greatness. Looking at yield is clearly not enough but it does provide a good starting point. Why am I so motivated in acquiring international dividend stock picks? Because it provides added diversification and a stronger portfolio which is critical in these very difficult economic times. It will end up making a significant difference in the success of my passive income objectives.

You can take a look at the top 50 from my list here:
