How we find the best utility dividend stocks.

Only the best utility dividend stocks are considered for the list.

We run the industry’s most demanding utility dividend screening test. Can a company afford their dividend? How likely are they to increase their dividend? What are their long-term earnings prospects? Do they have too much debt? How did the business perform in recent recessions? Are there other operating risks that pose a threat to their dividend policy? We assign strict thresholds for such questions and our research team performs further analysis. We track macro news, industry trends, competitive dynamics and specific company reports and then incorporate this understanding into a final decision for this list, which is monitored daily.

How this list is setup to pay the best utility dividends.
