The growth at General Electric Oil & Gas has been quite notable over the past couple of years. Its latest deal with Chevron Corporation is just the latest in a string of activity.

Furthering their existing relationship, General Electric (GE -0.33%) and Chevron Corp (CVX 0.30%) have decided to come together on the technology side of the oil and gas sector in what will be creatively called the Chevron GE Technology Alliance. After several sizable acquisitions by GE over the past couple of years, this partnership furthers its reach into the energy sector. The combination of GE's manufacturing capabilities and Chevron's field experience should allow for some pretty innovative products to emerge. Check out our short clip below for more.

GE and Chevron both pay nice dividends, but who else's dividends can investors trust?

Historically, dividend stocks as a group have handily outperformed their non-dividend paying brethren. While there are plenty of reasons, it is certainly important to select companies with sustainable dividends in order to take advantage of this fact. Unfortunately, identifying which dividend stocks in particular are the best isn't always easy. With this in mind, our top analysts put together a free list of nine high-yielding stocks that should be in every income investor's portfolio.
