Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks That Want to Give You a Raise in 2014

Nothing does a better job of selling dividend investing like a market correction. So, in a lot of ways, the almost 5% decline in the S&P 500 this year was really a sales pitch for dividend investing. Dividends are one of just a few ways that companies can directly impact their share prices. And between record earnings and more than $1.25 trillion in cash held on S&P 500 companies' balance sheets, there's a lot of latent value yet to be unlocked. More important, that value translates into capital gains.

Without further ado, here's a look at five stocks that could be about to increase their dividend payments in the next quarter: First up is oil and gas supermajor Chevron (CVX). A decade ago, who would have thought that Cisco Systems (CSCO). It shouldn't come as a big surprise that $36 billion electric utility holding firm Southern Co. (SO) is making our list of potential dividend hikers this week. Speaking of dividend lay-ups, next on the list is Kinder Morgan (KMI). Last up is Reynolds American (RAI).
