Defensive investors love stocks with high dividends, as such stocks can protect them from potential inflationary risks. Stocks that pay fat dividends are usually considered value stocks rather than growth stocks. However, some companies are able to continuously pay dividends and increase their earnings.

Below we compiled a list of 6 stocks with tremendous growth rates that also pay fat dividend checks regularly. All companies in the list have at least $10 billion market cap, over 3% dividend yield, and their EPS are expected to grow by over 10% over the next five years. The data is sourced from Finviz.
