#7: Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson JNJCurrent Dividend Yield: 3.6%
Year-to-Date Performance:

The first health care stock on the list of top 10 Dow dividend stocks is Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ). The company is part-pharmaceutical giant thanks to offerings like vaccines, and part-consumer health company thanks to big brands like Band-Aid and Tylenol. Health care is a recession-proof sector, as folks have to keep taking their medications even if the economy isn’t firing on all cylinders. Revenue admittedly has been a bit stagnant at J&J during the past few years; however, earnings per share continue to improve. There’s also the nice 3.6% dividend to consider — providing a good incentive to play this stock over the long term.
