dividend growth stocks. As an investor in dividend growth stocks, I sometimes think our strategy is the most misunderstood. It seems everyone understands a traders mentality and a high-yield mentality. Periodically, it is good to remind ourselves that dividend growth stocks provides us with excellent long-term leverage and a growing income.
Below are several stocks using real cash to raise their dividends:
Raymond James Financial, Inc. (RJF) is a financial holding company. December 29th the company increased its quarterly dividend 10% to $0.22 per share. The dividend is payable January 17, 2017 to stockholders of record on January 3, 2017, with an ex-dividend date of December 29, 2016. The yield based on the new payout is 1.2%.
Stryker Corporation (SYK) operates as a medical technology company. December 28th the company increased its quarterly dividend 12% to $0.425 per share. The dividend is payable January 31, 2017 to stockholders of record on December 30, 2016, with an ex-dividend date of December 28, 2016. The yield based on the new payout is 1.4%.
W. P. Carey Inc. (WPC) is an independent equity real estate investment trust that primarily invests in commercial properties that are generally triple-net leased to single corporate tenants including office, warehouse, industrial, logistics, retail, hotel, R&D, and self-storage properties. December 28th the company increased its quarterly dividend 0.5% to $0.99 per share. The dividend is payable January 13, 2017 to stockholders of record on December 30, 2016, with an ex-dividend date of December 28, 2016. The yield based on the new payout is 6.8%.
Selecting stocks with increasing dividends is critical for an income growth strategy. The above list contains stocks that recently raised their dividends; it is not a list of recommend buys. As always, due diligence should be performed before buying or selling any stock. For a list of stocks with a long string of consecutive cash dividend increases, see this list.
