60 Highest Dividend Paying Stocks as of 2017 end

US$100 bills - paid by the highest dividend paying stocks

As a reference, I occasionally like to publish lists like the one below of 60 of the highest dividend paying stocks as of late November 2017.  Note that these are ranked by total dollar amount of dividends paid by the companies, not by dividend yield, as the latter would favor many smaller, higher yielding stocks. This follows today’s list of the 50 largest companies by market cap.  This is related to how WisdomTree does dividend-weighted ETFs, and they have published how dividends have performed against market cap weighted indices after 10 years.
