Egg producer Cal-Maine Foods offers a nice quarterly dividend of 44 cents a share for an annual yield of 5.5%. The company has had healthy demand for its specialty eggs (a category that includes nutritionally enhanced, cage free, organic and brown eggs), and those sales increased to account for 31% of total revenue in the company's third fiscal quarter. Royal Bank of Canada offers a generous yield of 4.1%. This bank has a reassuring four-year dividend growth track record and currently pays a 59-cent quarterly divdiend.
