10 Not Sustainable Dividend Stocks

10 Dangerous Dividends to Avoid By Fool. Today's current low-interest-rate environment has made income-producing stocks all the rage. And while we certainly support looking at income producers in general, maintaining a "guilty until proven innocent" approach in assessing dividend stocks will save the average investor from a lot of future heartache.
