Income investors typically seek ample yield in their dividend stocks, but dividend sustainability matters every bit as much.

Just ask GameStop (GME) investors, who saw a 19%-plus dividend yield on May 4 turn into a nonexistent yield after the retailer suspended its payout to save cash in an attempt to salvage its troubled business.


Price, market value and yield data is as of June 5. DIVCON scores and measurement data such as earnings growth, levered free cash flow (LFCF)-to-dividend ratio and Altman Z-score is as of June 1. Stocks listed in reverse order of yield. Dividend yields are calculated by annualizing the most recent monthly payout and dividing by the share price. You can view other DIVCON scores on the Reality Shares provider site.
