    • Hi John,

      Somewhat loaded question. They have one of the highest if not the highest stated dividend interest rate, but there are other companies who products pay a higher total dividend despite a lower dividend interest rate. This is driven by variances in how companies quote and calculate their dividend rate and whether or not they state it as a net or gross rate.
