#9: AT&T (T)

AT&T-t-stock-dividend-stocksT Dividend Yield: 5.05%

Telecommunications are another sector to look at for generous dividend stocks. Blue chip AT&T (T) always lands among the best paying dividend stocks in the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average.

There’s always something keeping T stock in the news. A month ago, it was all about a price war with T-Mobile U.S. (TMUS). Now it’s a story with much higher stakes. AT&T has been holding talks with DirectTV (DTV) about a possible acquisition. Whether a deal comes to pass is a matter of speculation, but with Comcast’s (CMCSA) plan to acquire Time Warner Cable (TWC), we’re sure to hear more rumors like this — and some will stick.
