The 7 Best Dividend Stocks In 2015

by Robert Hauver
Are you wondering which dividend stocks outperformed in the first quarter of 2015? The past 6 months have been a roller coaster for many dividend stocks – thanks to the Crude Oil Crash, quite a few Energy-related stocks either trimmed or eliminated their dividends altogether.

The 7 top performers for Q1 2015 are a diverse group, ranging from publishing to business services, to apparel, to home furnishings, to Refining and Energy Services.
Interestingly, 2 of the top 3 performers in this group have a modest dividend yield of less than 2%, and a total of 4 out of 7 have low dividends:
