Dividends are back. And here are 54 secure payouts that are due for a raise between now and March.
The S&P yields a lousy 1.6% as I write. It’s sad to imagine a hefty million bucks in stocks could toss off a mere $16,000 in annual income. So, we income investors need a better play.
And that, my friend, is where these rising dividends come in. They are a “double threat” because we have two ways to win:
- The current yield, which (in many cases) will clear the 1.6% I mentioned. Plus,
- The price appreciation that comes along with the dividend increase.
