10 Best Dividend-Paying Companies

 


Dear Reader,

I have assembled a new list of 10 Dividend-Paying Companies that I believe will perform very well during the next year and beyond. These companies offer dividends averaging 2.0%, which exceed the current 10-year U.S. Treasury bond yield of 1.6%.

In addition to generous dividend payments, investors can expect steady long-term earnings and dividend growth of more than 10% per year. All of the companies maintain strong balance sheets with low debt and lots of cash. Annual dividend increases are common for all of the companies and have averaged 21% annually during the past five years.

Please click the below link to download the report immediately. 

FREE REPORT: 10 Best Dividend-Paying Companies

The average dividend payout ratio for the 10 companies is 30%, which is well below my 50% to 60% limit. And best of all, high-quality companies have been neglected by investors during the past several years and now sell at very reasonable prices.

I believe you’ll do very well by adding these companies to your portfolio. 

Sincerely,

J. Royden Ward

Stock Picks

Church

Church & Dwight owns the Arm & Hammer, OxiClean and Trojan brands, as well as some smaller, faster-growing brands. But even after a 35% climb in 18 months, Church & Dwight still looks strong and poised for further gains.

Restoration Hardware

Restoration Hardware (RH) has been on my watch list for a long time. Believe it or not, I’ve been watching the stock for about a year—it was my Top Pick at the 2014 Cabot Investors Conference, nearly one year ago—and now, after a ton of starts and stops, shares look poised to get going.

Fitbit

Right now, one stock on my radar is Fitbit (FIT), a stock that recently earned a spot in Cabot Top Ten Trader. Here’s what growth stock guru Mike Cintolo wrote about it last week.

Beach Weather in the Market

By Paul Goodwin on July 31, 2015

It’s the beginning of August, high summer in New England, and a bit of summer fatigue is setting in. Summer in New England is short, so we try to pack half a year’s worth of cookouts, beach days, hikes, kayaking, sight-seeing and other outside recreation into three months. It’s fun, but the pace can be a bit frantic, especially as the season enters its third act. Frankly, all I want to do now is lie on a beach somewhere and read a book. Read More >

Managing Your Stock Portfolio to the Market's Tune

By Michael Cintolo on July 30, 2015

In today’s Wealth Advisory, I’m doing something I’ve never done before—reprinting an entire piece I wrote in Cabot Growth Investor last Wednesday. It doesn’t involve any specific stock advice (that is and always will be for subscribers only), but it details the wild divergences in the market (which are now getting lots of press—even the Wall Street Journal had a big write-up on it Monday), what it means, and how I’m advising people to handle it—I think it’s very timely.Read More >
