dividend-stocks-dividend-yieldFTR Dividend Yield: 7.37%

Frontier Communications (FTR) is another long-suffering dividend stock putting up hot gains recently on an incrementally better outlook.

Better-than-expected quarterly earnings and progress in its efforts to retain customers and and cut costs have helped FTR stock gain 20% for the year-to-date. Add in the sky-high dividend and FTR has a total return of 22% so far this year — and 44% over the last 52 weeks. Wall Street expects FTR to eke out a slight increase in earnings per share for the full fiscal year.
