Highest Paying Dividend Stocks – In Focus F

Ford Motor Company (F) is one of the highest paying dividend stocks on the market. But in terms of its overall fundamentals, it is only an average company. And we would not consider it one of the best dividend paying stocks we cover.

Background

Ford Motor Company (F) is the second largest domestic auto manufacturer in the U.S. Ford operates across six continents and two segments. Those continents include North America, South America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia. The segments include Automotive and Financial Services.

Stock Fundamentals

Ford Motor Company’s stock fell to less than $ 2 during the financial meltdown in 2008. At one point, Ford had negative equity, and still has a paper thin equity-asset ratio.  Still Ford deserves praise for being the only one of the “Big Three” not to declare bankruptcy and not to get bailout funds.

In our opinion, Ford is the best-run of the American auto companies. However, that is not saying much. Ford is a very mature company with very limited growth potential. And a very spotty record of creating value.

Ford has a very generous dividend. But this dividend is one of the least secure of all the highest paying dividend stocks, and it should definitely not be valued as highly as the dividend of firms with much more certain futures. We would not consider Ford one of best monthly dividend stocks available.
