Volatile markets like today's are a good time to remind long-term investors of the virtues of big, stable dividend stocks like those found in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It's hard to beat blue-chip dividend stocks when it comes to long-term performance. Witness the highest-yielding Dow dividend stocks. Although not every name is necessarily a buy at current levels, each and every one has distinguished itself over the decades. Note that many of the highest-yielding Dow dividend payers rank among the best equity investments of all time. In several instances, these stocks remain top picks among Wall Street analysts, mutual fund managers and hedge fund managers today. Big, healthy balance sheets and reliable and rising dividends also tend to make the highest-yielding dividend stocks in the Dow Jones less volatile than the broader market. That can help income investors sleep better at night. Here are the highest-yielding Dow dividend stocks, with yields ranging from just more than 3% to over 5%.

Oracle's contention that the agency failed to properly consider potential conflicts of interest also was rejected. The GAO has yet to rule on a protest by IBM over the same contract.
