Dividend Stocks That Feed On Global Growth

Posted by D4L | Sunday, February 24, 2013 | | 0 comments »

When Donald Taylor is screening companies for the Franklin U.S. Rising Dividends Fund that he manages, the candidates have to pass a series of tests. He and his team at Franklin Templeton Investments also look for companies with a conservative payout ratio (dividends as a percentage of profits), strong market position and a management team that has demonstrated an ability to reinvest funds back into the business profitably.

The goal is to find “companies that we think can grow their dividends by 8, 10 or 12 per cent a year, hopefully higher in some cases, for a long time to come,” Mr. Taylor says. Consider this list as a starting point for further research: Chevron Corp. (CVX-NYSE), Pentair Ltd. (PNR-NYSE), Air Products and Chemicals Inc. (APD-NYSE), Dover Corp. (DOV-NYSE) and United Technologies Corp. (UTX-NYSE).
