3 Growth Dividend Stocks to Buy in August

Shareholder-friendly dividend payments can meaningfully improve portfolio returns, but not just any dividend stock is worth owning in portfolios. Some dividend paying stocks may boast enticingly high yields because their businesses are stalling, rather than accelerating, and their prices are down as a result. We asked three of our top Motley Fool contributors to name dividend stocks they think offer investors the chance for both income and growth.

Natural gas pipeline giant Spectra Energy (NYSE:SE) already pays a lucrative dividend: Its current yield is a robust 4.5%, and the quarterly payout has steadily risen over the years. In fact, the company has met or exceeded its dividend growth target for nine consecutive years. In the energy industry, it's hard to find a dividend-paying stock that has a more consistent growth record than Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD). Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) recently reported its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings and they didn't disappoint, especially in terms of cloud revenue.
