#4: CenturyLink (CTL)

centurylink185CTL Dividend Yield: 5.91%

And now for the most amusing part of the list. CenturyLink (CTL) is the one of three telecom stocks that always hit the top spots for dividend stocks with their crazy-high dividend yields and poor long-term price performance.

That said, things have been going great up for CTL stock lately. Shares are up 16% for the year-to-date, easily outpacing the S&P 500. The upside in price has dropped the yield on CTL below 7%, but given that the stock is still negative over the last 52 weeks, shareholders probably aren’t complaining.
