Dividend Doublers for the Next Decade

Posted by D4L | Sunday, February 10, 2013 | | 0 comments »

One of the best “little secrets” in investing is the Rule of 72. Roughly speaking — and for those interested in the nitty-gritty, take a look here — the rule allows investors to figure out how long it should take an investment to double. The rule also can apply to investors wanting to know how long it will take a company to double its dividend. After all, plenty of companies increase dividends, but income investors naturally want to make their way toward stocks that increase those dividends consistently and with a brisk pace.

The basic formula: Divide 72 by the dividend growth rate (DGR) of any stock. The final number is the time (in years) it will take for that dividend to double. Using the Rule of 72, here are five rock-solid dividend payers that could double their payments within this hypothetical 10-year investment horizon: Chevron (CVX), Coca-Cola (KO), Procter & Gamble (PG), Travelers (TRV) and Microsoft (MSFT).
