Richest Dividend Stocks (Pt. 1)

Jeffery Saut, chief investment strategist at Raymond James, and Allan Nichols, equities strategist at Morningstar, shared their insights on dividend stocks.

Nichols says there generally is “more stability internationally” than in the U.S., especially in the big cap names.

Nichols recommends:


BT Group

Royal Dutch Shell

France Telecom

Nichols commented that all the above-mentioned companies are mainly based in Europe, “but they have widespread assets throughout Europe, around emerging markets, and throughout the world.”


Nichols owns BP stock and Saut owns shares of LINE, MGG and SGP. No information on Raymond James and Morningstar were available.
