    Jim Jubak 
    recently announced he is revamping his Dividend Stock for Income Investors List and will be updating it in the near future. Jubak is one of the more insightful investing commentators on the web and has recently launched ablog. Below is the list for the end of the 3rd quarter; Jubak decided to replace USB with VZ at the start of the fourth quarter. I expect he will make more changes in the near future since he stated: "I’m going to better diversify this portfolio. It’s very heavy on energy and on master limited partnerships. The combination has done rather well by this portfolio, but I think I can add some safety here by moving a bit of money outside the energy sector."

    Below is the correlation matrix along with the performance and momentum data for the stocks in his list. I have provide a couple of research reports on dividend stocks in recent weeks (here and here) that offer some potential alpha generating methods for playing high yield equities. I am looking forward to his upcoming changes in the portfolio:
