HCP185 The Top 10 S&P 500 Dividend Stocks for AprilHCP Dividend Yield: 5.42%

HCP (HCP) is another REIT that’s no stranger to the list of top dividend payers. However, a rising share price more than offset a dividend hike to depress the yield from 5.83% a month ago.

It’s hard to get mad at HCP stock for putting up such strong price appreciation. Indeed, HCP is having an excellent year for a big dividend payer, putting up a gain of 12% so far in 2014. Street-beating fourth-quarter earnings — helped by higher revenue, not cost cuts — no doubt gave HCN stock a nice tailwind.
