Dividends4Life: Promising Dividends in Application Software

Dividend Growth Stocks News

Dividend payers deserve a berth in any long-term stock portfolio. But seemingly attractive dividend yields are not always as fetching as they may appear. Let's see which companies in the application software industry offer the most promising dividends.

Microsoft sports the best combination for a dividend stock, offering solid income now and a good chance of strong dividend growth in the future. The others bear watching, though, as they're the kind of dynamic companies that can grow into more stable behemoths able to pay dividends. After all, Microsoft's dividend began just in 2003, and Oracle's in 2009. Of course, as with all stocks, you'll want to look into more than just a company's dividend situation before making a purchase decision.
