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 yearBecause 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).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.

Great bank with solid management. Maybe it'll not grant extreme upside from here but definetly in a good position to benefit from the recovery economy.
Well managed bank that survived the 2008 crisis and should do well as the economy improves.
A strong bank with proven earnings and a nice dividend to boot
continued improvement in earmnimgs - hard to go against Buffett
I think banks are going to continue to perform.
USB is solid, cheap and conservative. Guaranteed yield.
Looks strong. Will be interesting to see how this last quarter has been in tomorrow's report. Looking to invest here.
Solid company, i like the discipline here.
U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) is the big financial winner on this list and it was even one of own picks earlier in 2012 as being one of the 7 safest banks in America. At $31.75, the 52-week range is $25.43 to $35.46 for this $60 billion market cap financial giant. With a consensus price target of $36.83, the implied upside is about 16%. U.S. Bancorp also carries a 2.4% dividend yield, which is likely to rise further in 2013.
Superior earnings in a wide variety of business lines. Wide moat.
Owned since $31. Powerhouse.
