Two articles in recent weeks described consolidated year to date results from the top 10 high yield stocks comprising (Dog) stocks in each of seven and eight indices. The second of those articles concluded by ranking eight indexes by risk from low to high:

- S&P 500 Aristocrats Dogs
- Dow Industrial Index Dogs
- NASDAQ 100 Index Dogs
- NYSE International Index Dogs
- S&P 500 Index Dogs
- Top Dog Stocks by Sectors
- Russell 2000 Index Dogs
This is the fifth article in an eight part series launched as another step toward Yale economist Robert Shiller's admonishment to "make conservative preparations for possible bad outcomes". Part 1 reviewed the underlying top thirty component stocks of the Russell 2000 Index. Part 2 discussed the 3x9 Sectors 27 Dogs. Part 3 examined the underlying top thirty component dividend stocks of the S&P 500 Index. Part 4 investigated the underlying top thirty component dividend stocks of the NYSE International 100 Index. Future articles in this eight part series will describe the complete component listings for all eight indices.
This article (Part 5) reviews the underlying top thirty highest yielding component dividend stocks of the NASDAQ 100 Index. This is the fifth highest yielding with presumed fifth highest risk (also fourth lowest risk) of the eight indices listed above.
Data from here reveals the following thirty stock portfolios as of September 18, 2011:

September Dividend vs. Price Results for NASDAQ 100 Index Highest Dividend Paying 10
Currently Seagate Technology, tops this list at 5.99% Yield. Annual projected dividend totals for $1000 invested in each of the top ten stocks have never diverged beyond $250 of the aggregate total single share prices and have begun to converge. Dividends vs. price in September however are only beginning to approach the lockstep proximity evident the first five months of the year. This trend toward convergence in September signals stock prices rising now reducing dividend yields and the number of shares buyable with a fixed investment amount.
Maybe Annual projected dividend totals for $1000 invested in the top ten of the NASDAQ 100 Index dividend stocks will continue to converge toward the aggregate total single share prices in October. This was a very tame and harmonious list from January through May that crept into higher risk territory in the past three months. In October another review of the 30 highest yielding NASDAQ 100 dividend stocks will be reported. Stay tuned
