The coronavirus continues to dramatically impact people’s lives as well as the economy as a whole. As a result, stocks are still trading well off their February highs. However, significantly lower stock prices have led to noticeably higher dividend yields. So to get a sense of which dividend stocks have been catching investors’ attention when the market rallies, we identified the highest dividend paying stocks (5% dividend yield or more) that gained at least 25% during the most recent bear market rally (March 23, 2020 through August 11, 2020). Also, since larger companies tend to have a better ability to sustain dividend payments, in part due to better access to resources, the following table is limited to companies with a market cap of over $50 billion. For the top performing stocks (65% gain or more) during the last bear market rally, check our Best Bear Market Rally Stocks list.
