    S&P 500 Stocks With Best Dividends By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. The S&P 500 index is a popular used tool by investors. Professionals like big insurance player or pension funds allocate their portfolio weighting on indices like the Dow Jones Index and Standard & Poor's 500. The S&P 500 is a free-float capitalization-weighted index published since 1957 by Standard & Poor's, a division of McGraw-Hill Companies.

    I screened the index with its 500 companies by the best dividend yields. The index has twenty-eight high yields and the highest yield amounts to 11.11 percent, paid by Pitney Bowes (NYSE:PBI). In order to focus on the cheapest high yields, I decided to select only those stocks with a current P/E ratio of less than 15. Exactly thirteen companies remained of which seven have a buy or better recommendation.

    Here are my favorite stocks:
