Dividend Standouts Mark 25 Years Of Increases

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, September 05, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Dividend stocks are all the rage in this era of high market volatility and uncertain economic times. If you can lock in a 3% dividend yield — or higher — and guarantee a modest return on your investment, many investors leap at the chance. However, it’s important to remember that not all dividend stocks do right by their shareholders. There are a host of big dividend payers in the MLP or REIT space that have very volatile paydays.

You need a dependable dividend. Sure, the yield is important — but reliability is equally so. At InvestorPlace.com, we highlight the most bulletproof dividend payers in our Dependable Dividend Stocks section. This year, thanks to years of focusing on dividend increases, five new names just joined our list by paying (or at least announcing) their 25th consecutive year of dividend increases. They are: Atmos Energy (NYSE:ATO), Cardinal Health (NYSE:CAH), Chevron (NYSE:CVX), Universal Health Realty Trust (NYSE:UHT) and UGI Corp. (NYSE:UGI).
