These companies recently raised their dividends

Last week saw a flurry of companies announce dividend increases. This pace is likely to quicken as we enter the home stretch of 2020 into the new year.

I want to highlight three companies that have all recently raised their dividend, but are likely not that well known to dividend growth investors. In addition to the recent dividend increase, each of these stocks trades at least 15% below their GF Value and could offer yields of up to almost 30%.

Growing your income stream requires dividend growth

While many investors are mostly concerned with the ups and downs of the share price, dividend growth investors' primary concern is generating enough income to cover expenses. Reaching that milestone requires annual dividend growth. In this article, we will take a look at three companies that have recently raised their dividend payments.

Target

Target Corp. (TGT) is one of the largest discount retailers in the world. The 118-year-old company sells consumer products and groceries in its nearly 1,900 stores. Besides its “big box” store types, Target also has smaller stores in urban areas that are tailored to consumer tastes.

Expect lots of volatility for the company in the near term, but what is the outlook for the longer term?

A small earthquake shook the health care industry on the morning of Nov. 9 when it became clear a new administration would take charge, an administration that promised a major overhaul of the system.

What effect will this have on the long-term future of Universal Health Services (UHS), one of the big names in the field and the operator of numerous acute care and behavioral health facilities?

Does it have the earnings and cash flow power to withstand potentially bad news when the new administration takes office in January?

This is an examination of the company’s strengths and weaknesses, as

U.S. REITs were created in 1960 by Congress as a way for all investors to have access to large-scale, income-producing real estate. To qualify as a REIT, the trust must comply with IRS rules. These rules include: 1) distributing annually as dividends at least 90% of its taxable income, 2) investing at least 75% of its total assets in real estate and 3) deriving at least 75% of gross income from real estate.

The 90% distribution requirement along with no corporate income taxes are two reasons REITs yields are often above average. However, it is important to note that

The rising stock market has created fewer opportunities to find high yielding dividend stocks that are likely to continue increasing dividend payments. There are 4 businesses that have dividend yields greater than 5% combined with 25+ years of consecutive dividend increases.

  • AT&T (T) - 5.11% Yield, 30 consecutive years of dividend increases
  • Universal Health Trust (UHT) - 5.86% Yield, 27 consecutive years of dividend increases
  • HCP, Inc. (HCP) - 5.32% Yield, 29 consecutive years of dividend increases

Everyone wants to earn more. For investors in dividend growth stocks, the quick way to earn more is to select dividend stocks with higher yields. Swap those 2-4% yields in for stocks earning 7-10%, or more. Before making the trade, you should ask yourself the following two questions:

1. Why is the yield higher? and
2. Are these higher yields sustainable?

Structure Driven Yields

One variation in yields can be attributed to the entity's tax structure. For example, Master Limited Partnerships and REITs do not pay income taxes. Instead, earnings are passed to investors who

I read [url=http://www.money.cnn.com/2013/05/31/investing/dividend-yield-stocks/]an article from CNN[/url], which discussed how the dividend craze was likely over. In general, I find articles that describe short-term movements of stock prices, and then adding terms like “dividend craze” to be extremely non-productive for dividend investors. The premise of the article was that some dividend stocks like utilities and consumer staples will have poor reception by investors going forward. Others such as banks and cyclical stocks, could do better as the economy improves.

You can follow ETFs or cover a simple index of dividend stocks to buy those that have outperformed the market. Not all of these strategies are of success.
