most popular dividend stocks

The 100 most popular dividend stocks build a backlog of equities that every investor, whether optimistic or pessimistic, should know.

In fact, bulls and bears agree — knowing what is “in style” is a critical piece of information for investment strategy. While some investors buy popular stocks to ride their upward momentum, contrarians may see this collection of the 100 most popular dividend stocks as a list of possible short targets.

Whether your intention is to buy or sell contracts for the equities below, we chose the 100 most popular dividend stocks based on a number of criteria. First, every company listed must pay a regular dividend — it is worth noting that the size of these dividends varies considerably, with dividend yields ranging from 0.1% to 9.7%.

But after this initial criteria, we used a weighted combination of the 3-month average volume, short interest ratios, returns over several periods within the last year, price vs. 52-week high and moving average convergence and divergence (MACD) signals to create a general measure of popularity. This screen was created by using the Dividend Screener from DividendInvestor.com in tandem with the powerful technical screener Stock Rover. We recommend investors use a similar combination of tools when screening for their own portfolio’s specific needs.

Here are the 100 most popular dividend stocks, listed in order of least to most popular.
