If everyone loves a growth stock and everyone loves a dividend stock, then everyone must really love high-growth dividend stocks, right? Right. But they’re hard to find. High-growth dividend stocks are like needles in the haystack. A lot of companies have big dividends, but no growth. Meanwhile, a lot of growth companies don’t invest in a dividend. With that in mind, here’s a list of my 3 favorite high-growth dividend stocks that give investors both quarterly distributions and healthy earnings growth...

There is no company in the world quite like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Not only is Apple the world’s largest publicly traded company, but it is also arguably the world’s most recognizable brand. Chipmaker Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) used to be one of those healthy dividend stocks with muted growth prospects. When it comes to the athletic retail market, it’s hard to argue against the undisputed king, Nike, Inc. (NYSE:NKE).

Stocks that have a strong history of dividend growth belong to mature companies, which are less susceptible to large swings in the market, and thus act as a hedge against economic or political uncertainty as well as stock market volatility. At the same time, these offer downside protection with their consistent increase in payouts. Additionally, these stocks have superior fundamentals that make dividend growth a quality and promising investment for the long term. These include a sustainable business model, a long track of profitability, rising cash flows, good liquidity, a strong balance sheet and some value characteristics.

This REIT is a SWAN in the healthcare REIT sector. The company makes a compelling value proposition: It has a fortress balance sheet, a strong, diversified, long-duration lease portfolio and a conservative FFO payout ratio. It has a history of growing its dividend. Shares sell for a competitive run-rate FFO multiple. An investment in the stock yields 6.3 percent. The dividend is distributed monthly.

I added to my long position in LTC Properties, Inc. (LTC) at the end of last week. Three reasons stood out why I doubled down on the healthcare REIT for my income portfolio: LTC Properties profits from long-term demand trends in the senior-focused healthcare sector, the company easily covers its dividend with cash flow, and the healthcare REIT has a history of growing its dividend. An investment in LTC Properties yields 6.3 percent, and the dividend is paid on a monthly distribution schedule.
