Top 5 Dividend Stocks for 2017

Posted by D4L | Saturday, March 04, 2017 | | 0 comments »

As inflation continues to creep up and the Federal Reserve continues to push the notion of raising interest rates in 2017, dividend stocks have continued their appeal from 2016 early in the year. However, it's not just a race for yield -- it's a dash for fundamentals too. "We're focused on dividend growth and dividend growing companies," said Eric Ervin, CEO of Reality Shares, which has almost $55 million in assets under management. "We're looking for companies that can grow their dividends since they hold up better."

As people continue to clamor for income, increased scrutiny has been placed upon dividend paying stocks. It's up to investors to find good, quality companies that can continue to increase their payouts, while not having to worry about being over levered. Some companies that exhibit some of the traits Ervin talked about include Tyson Foods (TSN), Texas Instruments (TXN), Expeditors International (EXPD), Hormel Foods (HRL) and S&P Global (SPGI).
