The Best Dividend Paying Mega-Capitalized Stocks

Mega-Capitalized Stocks With Best Dividends Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Mega capitalized stocks, companies with a market capitalization over USD 200 billion, are very rare. Only twelve companies are listed on the stock exchanges and nine pay dividends. Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) are the only stocks with no dividend payments. Apple recently announced to pay a regular quarter dividend of USD 2.65, representing a yield of 1.76 percent. What I like to say is that mega caps are well diversified and big dividend payers. Let’s take a look at these twelve companies and their fundamentals.

Here are my favorite stocks:
