Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

This is one of my STARZ.
Here is the thought process on this STAR:
a) Divided rate over Zero
b) 3 Year Beta between -5 & +3
c) 15% + Insider ownership
d) No greater than -50% Growth rate for the last 3 years (tought= last couple of years so goo that insiders are still owning the stocks)
e) Current CAPS rating between 3 Stars & 5 Stars
Open to all Industries and Sectors screened this down to just 250 stocks. I like round numbers. 12 of them I already own through other screening tools. I tend to be somewhat conservative but looking for 3 things at this point in my investing:
1. Stability & Strength
2. Yield and Modest Growth
3. Strong Position within a sector regardless of whether the entire sector is strong or not. Each sector has to perform to some degree for the whole world economy to function. I am looking for 5 or more years down the road, ROI, and Growth.
Not looking for rockets, just stars. This is a Star!!

Maintaining a good price despite the market run up. Insurance business should recover as things get better...but the financial aspect of the business will certainly improve, and that will help.

Wish I got to it earlier. May take a few lumps in the meantime if the bears have their way. But should be solid longterm

Specialty insurance play getting crushed by natural disasters - hurricanes- and Wall Street disasters - impaired investments. Survivor with almost $500 million net cash should base soon around $25; technically about 10% oversold in the very near term

Assurant is, I believe, one of the best-run insurance companies in the country. Management focuses on niches where it can enjoy sustainable competitive advantages and pricing power (consumer warranties, healthcare for small businesses, etc.). Assurant is conservatively capitalized, and is actually on track to grow book value this year despite some investment losses. Book value will likely end 2008 around $34 to $35 per share. The stock, recently $40, is barely above that, even though historically it enjoys a multiple of about 1.75 times book value. Once the financial panic subsides, Assurant should still be standing strong, and the shares should recover.
