Top 10 High Dividend Paying Stocks in India - 2024

Dividend stocks can provide stable passive income along with potential capital appreciation to an investment portfolio. In this post, we will look at the top 10 high dividend paying stocks in India based on their 5-year average dividend yield.

Just focusing only on high yield dividend stocks for investing can be risky though. Fundamental strength of the underlying company, consistency in dividend payouts over previous years etc. should also be analyzed before making any buy decisions.

Before we jump into the list, let's clarify an important concept:

What is Dividend Yield?

Dividend yield indicates how much dividends a company pays relative to its market share price over a year.

For example, if a stock is trading at ₹100 and it declares an annual dividend of ₹5 per share, its dividend yield would be 5%.

Now, let's go through the list of highest dividend yield stocks in India:

The dividend yields have been calculated based on past 5 years' dividend distribution record of the companies. Actual future dividend amounts can vary based on business performance over coming years.

Now that you have a list of potential high dividend stocks to analyze further, the next step would be evaluating company earnings, debt levels, cashflow, management quality etc. before finalizing dividend stocks for long term investing.
