Dividends4Life: Compound Your Way To Wealth With 31 Dividend Stocks About To Make Payouts

As we enter the holiday season, we can celebrate the benefits provided by companies with lengthy streaks of annual dividend increases, a feature that enhances the compounding achieved by using dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs) and dollar-cost averaging. Currently, there are more than 300 companies that have raised their dividends for at least five straight years and that offer company-sponsored DRIPs. Owning such companies magnifies returns by using reinvested dividends that are steadily rising to generate dividends of their own.

Among the companies that have recently declared a dividend increase are Arrow Financial (AROW) (22 years, Ex-Div. 12/1/15), Dow Chemical (DOW) (6 years, Ex-Div. 12/29/15), McDonald’s Corp. (MCD) (40 years, Ex-Div. 11/27/15), UMB Financial (UMBF) (24 years, Ex-Div. 12/4/15) and VF Corp. (VFC) (43 years, Ex-Div. 12/4/15). Buying such stocks just before the ex-dividend date gets the “compounding machine” running as soon as possible, so keeping an eye on the previous year’s increase date provides a distinct advantage over other investors.
