Dividends4Life: 3 Attractive Dividend Stocks Whose Dividends Could Double

Any company that can double its dividend over a five-year stretch is delivering rapid payout growth. To reach that target, the company would need to raise its distribution at an average annual rate of roughly 15% over the stretch. Of course, doubling your dividend payout in every five-year period is a lofty target, and taking extra time to clear that bar shouldn't be taken as a negative, but investors seeking dividend growth can generally feel very satisfied if that standard is met.

To get an idea of stocks that stand a good chance of doubling their payouts over the next five years, it helps to look for companies that are paying out a relatively small portion of their earnings and free cash flow (FCF), have catalysts to improve cash flow going forward, and have a history of regular payout growth. Read on to see why Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV), and Hanesbrands (NYSE:HBI) are attractive stocks that could double their payouts in the not too distant future.
