Is Verizon Really the Dow's Best Dividend?

Though Verizon sports the Dow's second biggest dividend and has realized more growth than rival AT&T, that doesn't make the company a winner.

For example, when it comes to a company with a great dividend, a wide moat, and better growth prospects than Verizon, Dow stocks such as McDonald's and 3M could be a safer bet.
