DividendChannel.com creates a proprietary ”DividendRank” by screening through our coverage universe of large cap, dividend paying stocks, to look at a variety of data ? dividend history & yield, book value, quarterly earnings ? and comparing it to the stock’s trading data to come up with certain calculations about profitability and about the stock’s valuation (whether we think it looks ”cheap” or ”expensive”). Here are the top DividendRank stocks within 10 sectors for these large-caps. We have highlighted the company with the largest yield from the top ten ranked stocks in each category.
