It's that time of year again - time to take a look into the next year and determine the Best Dividend stocks of 2010. 2009 was one of the worst years for stock-dividend payouts since World War II, but the year is finally coming to an end. Standard & Poor's sees dividends among S&P 500 index companies climbing more than 6% over this year, offering the hope of attractive returns for income-oriented investors turned off by particularly low bond yields.
Let's get right to them - the three Dividend stocks we like in 2010 are Cellcom Israel Ltd. (Public, NYSE:CEL) , Altria Group, Inc. (Public, NYSE:MO) and Extra Space Storage, Inc. (Public, NYSE:EXR)
