Dividends4Life: 5 Best Dividend Stocks to Watch in May 2017

If investors believe a company is going to cut its dividend soon and a sell-off starts, they could make the company’s yield rise. Would that company be a good choice for income investors? Not really. That’s why we are going to focus on dividend growth rather than dividend yield. Whether it’s increasing interest rates or rising inflation, if a company can keep growing its business and dividends accordingly, income investors don’t have to worry about the macro environment all that much. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the top five dividend stocks to watch in May 2017.

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. (NASDAQ:CBRL) could be setting up to deliver some delicious returns. Cracker Barrel Old Country Store operates a chain of combined restaurant and gift shops with a Southern country theme. Clorox Co (NYSE:CLX) has been an income investor for quite some time. Starting with its original liquid bleach product “Clorox” in 1913, the company has been around for over a century. General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS) is a branded food company headquartered in Golden Valley, Minnesota. With an annual yield of 1.45%, Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) might not look like something you’ll find in a top dividend stocks list. Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (NYSE:MPW) is a REIT worth considering for income investors.
