Although capital appreciation is a primary goal for stock investments, stocks with dividends not only have the upside potential for capital gains, but also deliver an income component. While dividends vary widely depending on the type of stock and industry sector, some dividend stocks not only have yields that can be compared favorably to bond issues from rivals in the same industry, but some can deliver junk bond-like double-digit yields without the same credit rating risks.

We screened our 24/7 Wall St. dividend equity research database, looking for stocks that pay massive dividends, and we found three companies that combined can generate over $2,500 a year in passive income if you invest just $5,000 in each stock at the time of this writing.
