Top 100 Dividend Stocks – March 2011 � Intelligent Speculator


The image on the right gives a fairly accurate image of how quickly this year has been flying by. Many different things have been happening all around the world that continue to have profound consequences on investors around the world. We have been doing our best trying to stay focused, trying to build passive income through a dividend portfolio. The same stock is back on top of the rankings, although there are some challengers and I would expect things to change in the near future. That being said, I think many other criteria need to be considered when picking dividend stocks and that is why I will be narrowing down the list later this week for our mailing list members.
If you are interested in finding out what are top dividend stock picks are, simply join our mailing list it’s free! I expect to send it out later this week. Then, next week I will take a deeper look into the top picks from that analysis.

What to look for

Over the past few months, we have looked at quite a few criteria that have helped us find the best dividend stocks including current yield, dividend growth and also companies that produce solid enough earnings to keep up the dividend payments. We summed it all up when we discussed the 20 things that we look for in dividend stocks.
No changes at the top as FTR continues to be the top dividend payer but its lead continues to diminish. The stock price for Frontier did suffer in February helping the stocks become more affordable.
Hopefully this will help you when building your passive dividend porrtfolio.

We will be filtering out the top 100 list to find the ones that fit all of these criteria! In the meantime, here is the list!
