Promising and Fast-Growing Dividends

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, January 01, 2013 | | 1 comments »

As we look toward a new year with renewed determination to be better investors, we'd do well to include some solid dividend-paying stocks in our portfolios. Dividends from healthy, growing companies deliver to us, like mail carriers, in any kind of weather -- boom, bust, or stalled economy.

Don't be put off by lots of current yields below 3%. If a 2.8% dividend grows by even 10% annually, it will become 4.5% in just five years. It's fair to chase high yields, but some of them can take a long time to grow much more. The companies above have been boosting their payouts substantially in recent years. Such high rates can't last forever, but given fairly low payout ratios for most of the companies, they stand a good chance of continuing for more years. (A payout ratio reflects the portion of a company's earnings being paid out in dividends.)
