25 Top-Paying Dividend Stocks That Will Make You Rich

GOBankingRates Logo By Andrew Lisa of GOBankingRates | Slide 1 of 26: Retirees and other investors looking for predictable passive income streams have long turned to dividend stocks — which look even better now that it’s a struggle to get a 1% yield on a one-year CD. The very best dividend stocks not only deliver reliable payouts over the years, but also appreciate, thereby delivering increasingly larger payments over time. The top performers are usually associated with large, established companies that command massive shares of their respective markets. Also, the best dividend stocks don’t slash or eliminate their dividends — in fact, they increase them. The most trusted of all are the famous Dividend Aristocrats, which are a few dozen high-profile stocks on the S&P 500 that have increased their dividends every year for at least a quarter-century. GOBankingRates analyzed each of them — there are currently 65 — and used data from NASDAQ and Google Finance to find the 25 with the highest yields.  They’re ranked in ascending order of yield. Known for relative safety, security, predictability and growing yields, these stocks are the lifeblood of dividend investors everywhere.      Last updated: Oct. 23, 2020
