Dividends4Life: Dividend Boosters for Your Watch List

Dividend Boosters for Your Watch List

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, September 11, 2013 | | 0 comments »

When looking for investments, you may want to look to the S&P 500's Dividend Aristocrats list. Companies merit a spot on the list when they boost dividends for at least a couple of decades. Of course, it would be unwise to invest in a company based solely on its inclusion on this list. Looking into company fundamentals and whether it sells a needed product represent a must when doing investment research.

Cintas (NASDAQ: CTAS) performs a variety of services for other businesses such as uniform services/sales, safety services, document management, and cleaning services. Apparel and footwear company, VF Corp (NYSE: VFC) owns a portfolio of strong brands such as The North Face, Lee, Wrangler, and Timberland. Ecolab (NYSE: ECL) deals in the business of sanitation. If you own a business that needs to be brought up to health code, or a water system that doesn't meet sanitation standards, then Ecolab can help you with these tasks. On the whole, these companies provide needed products and services and enjoy considerable brand loyalty while paying out relatively low amounts of their free cash flow in dividends. All of these elements provide the catalysts for growing the free cash flow that will sustain dividend increases for years to come.
