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).

Large space set aside in supermarkets for their varied candies. Quality is established. Brand is well known.

As much as I like chocolate I would not pay more than $45 for this topping out stock.

Cash efficient. Can not be sold to the highest bidder as the HSY trust will not allow that. Has the ability to raise prices to reflect commodity costs and inflation.

An inexpensive indulgence that will be one of the last to be scrimped on in any down turn and will be one of the first to be expanded on during any upturn.

117. The Hershey Company (NYSE: HSY) is ridiculously overvalued. I guess this shouldn't surprise me because so is Tootsie Roll Industries (NYSE: TR). I'm downthumbing them both. Hershey should be trading between $50-$55, but the redthumbing at present is mostly because they are trading at the top of their channel. Expect them to fall below $58. There's a new analyst that I've never heard of: "Ticonderoga" that apparently assigned Hershey a price target of $66. Unbelievable. Who are these people? For the most part, Hershey is trading above the other analyst estimates. Look out below!

Well known brand with strong dividend. Incoming CEO may make them an even better company.

They have to explore different new flavours, at which chains like Ghirardelli and Godiva are extremely good...But, We do see that Hersheys is a Poor Man's Godiva and although they'll continue to stick around, I don't see much of a growth for them....

The expenses related to the more efficient supply chain are in the past and now they will use some of those cost savings for advertising and growing the iconic brands.

Piotrosky screen.

I don't see much I like here (besides their product), but I am testing a strategy here.
