ConocoPhillips continues to reward shareholders since spinning off Phillips 66 into an enormously successful refining and chemicals business last year. The new independent E&P company is earmarking 75% of capital expenditures to develop high return on investment plays, particularly shale plays in the United States. Besides possessing an incredible portfolio of oil assets, Conoco pays a strong dividend, and with production and margin growth, shareholders can continue to load up on this stable oil producer.

Dividend stocks can make you rich. It's as simple as that. While they don't garner the notoriety of high-flying growth stocks, they're also less likely to crash and burn. And over the long term, the compounding effect of the quarterly payouts, as well as their growth, adds up faster than most investors imagine. With this in mind, our analysts sat down to identify the absolute best of the best when it comes to rock-solid dividend stocks, drawing up a list in this free report of nine that fit the bill.
