#4: Ensco (ESV)

dividend-stocks-dividend-yieldESV Dividend Yield: 6.17%

Ensco (ESV), a U.K.-based oil and gas exploration company, maintains a place on the top 10 S&P 500 dividend stocks for a fourth consecutive month, helped by a sagging share price.

Despite its prominence in the industry, ESV stock is having an awful year. It’s off more than 11% for the year-to-date and can’t expect much help from higher oil prices anytime soon. The drop in the stock pushed the dividend yield above 6% from 5.78% a month ago. As long as the outlook for energy-price gains remains muted, it’s hard to imagine ESV seeing much strength.
