Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks With Growing Distributions

Dividend Stocks With Growing Distributions

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, April 21, 2015 | | 0 comments »

Many investors think of dividend-paying companies as boring, low-return investment opportunities. Compared to high-flying small cap companies, whose volatility can be pretty exciting, dividend-paying stocks are usually more mature and predictable. Though this may be dull for some, the combination of a consistent dividend with an increasing stock price can offer an earnings potential powerful enough to get excited about. Once a company makes a profit, management must decide on what to do with those profits. They could continue to retain the profits within the company, or they could pay out the profits to the owners of the firm in the form of dividends.

Once the company decides on whether to pay dividends they may establish a somewhat permanent dividend policy, which may in turn impact on investors and perceptions of the company in the financial markets. What they decide depends on the situation of the company now and in the future. It also depends on the preferences of investors and potential investors. The good part about the dividend growth strategy is that investors receive cash in their brokerage accounts from their dividend paying stocks. This allows them to have the necessary resources available for opportunities present during recessions for example. The following stocks have raised dividends each year for several years in a row: Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (NYSE:BMY), Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ:BRCM) and BT Group plc (ADR) (NYSE:BT).
