#1: Windstream Holdings (WIN)

dividend-stocks-win-stockWIN Dividend Yield: 13.6%

Windstream Holdings (WIN) remains the reigning champ of dividend stocks in the S&P 500, and the yield has only gone up. WIN stock yields an incomparable 13.6%, up from 12.4% a month ago.

Like CTL stock, WIN stock is a telecom that has fallen on hard times. Indeed, WIN stock has dropped 7.8% so far this year. Only that insanely high dividend pulls WIN stock into the green for the year-to-date.

At some point you figure the good times of amazingly high yields, have to come to an end. After all, Windstream is highly leveraged and pays out more in dividends than it makes in earnings.

As of this writing, Dan Burrows did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
