#5: Transocean (RIG)
RIG Dividend Yield: 5.68%
Oil-and-gas-driller Transocean (RIG) makes the top 10 dividend stocks for a second consecutive month. Unfortunately for anyone holding Transocean stock, the dividend yield climbed this high only because the stock has fallen so far. RIG stock is down a painful 17% for the year-to-date, hurt by stagnant oil prices.
Of course that does afford some opportunity for new money, which can get in on the 5.68% dividend yield — up from 5.29% a month ago — at a discounted valuation. Transocean trades for 9 times forward earnings vs. 16 for the broader market.
