Dividend Aristocrat Trading at a Discount

Posted by D4L | Saturday, March 16, 2019 | | 0 comments »

Over the years, few companies have served income investors better than the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats. To become a “Dividend Aristocrat,” a company needs to be an S&P 500 component and must have increased its dividend every year for at least 25 years. A quarter of a century of annual payout increases is no easy feat, especially when you take into account all the ups and downs in our economy during this period. Among all S&P 500 companies, only 57 currently have this title.

That’s why today I want to talk to you about a relatively inexpensive way to tap into top-notch dividend growth: Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc (NASDAQ:WBA). If you live in the U.S. or Europe, chances are you have seen some of the company’s stores. WBA’s retail and business brands include “Walgreens,” “Duane Reade,” “Boots,” and “Alliance Healthcare.” Combined, the Deerfield, Illinois-based company has over 18,500 stores in 11 countries around the world. At the same time, Walgreens Boots Alliance operates one of the largest pharmaceutical wholesale and distribution networks in the world. It has over 390 distribution centers delivering to more than 230,000 pharmacies, hospitals, and medical professionals in more than 20 countries.
