10 High Yielding Stocks With Reliable Dividends

If you are a yield investor, you should look at my screening results from today. I've compiled 10 top yielding stocks from the S&P 500 with reliable dividends and a yield of at least 3.5 percent.

About 60 companies in the S&P 500 have yields of 3% or more. To make our cut, each company needs to cover its dividend from estimated 2015 earnings.

I excluded oil stocks and real estate investment trusts as well as master limited partnerships, which are valued differently than regular corporations using cash-flow measures rather than reported earnings.

These are my results....
