Dividend Stocks to Make You Rich

Posted by D4L | Saturday, October 30, 2010 | | 0 comments »

This is an intimidating time to be an investor. The market seems to unpredictably jump or fall without warning. However, in times like these, it is still possible for investors to persevere, and even grow their wealth. One of the easiest ways to find strong companies is to look for those that consistently pay high dividend yields, and then to reinvest those dividends. If you can find dividend payers that are also growing their earnings year over year, it's easy to just sit back and watch your portfolio grow. In fact, research has shown that, historically, dividend-paying stocks return about 5% more annually than stocks that do not pay a dividend.

To help you in your quest to get rich over time, I've identified four stocks to look at further. First, I wanted to find large-cap stocks, as they are typically less volatile and let you sleep easier at night. In addition, I screened for companies that had a strong but sustainable annual dividend yield, at least 4%; and to ensure that these companies are still growing, at least 5% growth in EPS over the last three years. The companies I chose also have four- and five-star CAPS ratings, which means they're favorites of The Motley Fool's 170,000-member CAPS community.
