While some pundits claim that the Dow Jones Industrial Average isn’t necessary a great index to follow, it does have one great thing going for it — great income potential. Given that the stocks in the Dow Jones industrial average are some of America’s largest and most important companies, what you really have is a collection of some of the bluest Blue-Chip dividend payers in the market. These are firms with long dividend histories, through multiple market cycles.

Blended together, the stocks in the Dow Jones index yield a respectable 2.08% — as represented by the index tracking SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA).

But taken individually, we get a much different yield picture for the Dow Jones Average — one that can pay nearly 5% in dividends. For income seekers, that’s a yield to get the blood pumping. It’s even better when that sort of high yield is backed by one of the largest companies on the planet.

With that, here are the 10 best Dow Jones dividend stocks ranked by overall yield.
