Dividends4Life: 3 Favorite Dividend Stocks From A Veteran Manager Of $18 Billion Fund

But rather than buying shares of companies with the highest current dividend yields, you might have better long-term performance if you focus on companies that are most likely to keep raising their payouts by large amounts, regardless of current yields. That’s the objective of the Franklin Rising Dividends Fund FRDPX, -0.27% Don Taylor, the mutual fund’s manager since 1996, screens for companies that have a long history of big dividend increases.

He also prefers companies with “relatively modest capital investment needs,” so that cash flow can be used for large dividend increases over extended periods. Taylor named three companies he thinks are attractive for long-term investors: Honeywell International Inc. (HON), Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) and Medtronic PLC (MDT).
