These two hated dividend stocks are buys to me

Paypoint (LSE:PAY) and Xaar (LSE:XAR) are two top dividend stocks. Unfortunately, these stocks are also two of London's most disliked dividend stocks for multiple reasons.

Over the past year shares in Paypoint have fallen by 1.5% excluding dividends, while shares in Xaar have declined by a staggering 20.5%. Over the same period, the FTSE 100 has added 22.4% so you might have been better off buying a FTSE 100 tracker fund than either of these market laggards.
