When the market is losing momentum dividend stocks come to play. One of the highest dividend payer is BP Prudhoe Bay Royal Trust (NYSE:BPT). The trust is going to issue quarterly dividend within two weeks. Little wonder, investors want to be on the $3 or so dividend per share. Current price of $87.27 is up .77% from last Friday.
