Dividends4Life: Buy These 5 Healthy Blue Chips with Growing Dividends

After a big snap-back rally for the S&P 500 at the end of October, we are once again sitting on a nice year-to-date gain for stock investors. However, one sector that never really faced as much trouble and is sitting on even bigger profits in 2014 is healthcare stocks. ake the iShares Dow Jones US Healthcare ETF (IYH) or the Health Care Select Sector SPDR (XLV), both of which are up more than 20% so far in 2014 vs. about 9% for the S&P. That kind of outperformance in a volatile market is incredibly noteworthy.

If you’re going to ride the long-term growth in healthcare for years to come, why not get a 2%, 3% or even 4% dividend yield in addition to the share price appreciation as you wait? By my estimation, there are five healthcare stocks with growing dividend yields that are a cut above the rest: Ventas (VTR), HealthSouth (HLS), Chemed (CHE), WellPoint (WLP) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ).
