  • These Dividend Contenders May Rise Dividends Within The Next 3 Months

    Recently, I wrote about Dividend Champions that may rise dividends within the next 3 months in order to keep their status as dividend grower alive.

    It's fantstic to know what companies should hike it's dividends because the current yields are so low that each investor get tears in his eyes.

    A potential dividend hike could lift the current dividend yield on a new level.

    Today I like to introduce some Dividend Contenders with potential to hike dividends over the next quarter. As a result, I found 20 companies; nine of them yield over 3 percent.

    Dividend Growth is a wonderful investing space on which I personally spend a lot of time.

    I love it to see dividends grow but it's only possible if a company grows and has low debt ratios.

    These are my 6 highlights...

    #1 Thomson Reuters Company (NYSE:TRI) has a market capitalization of $31.63 billion. The company employs 57,800 people, generates revenue of $12.702 billion and has a net income of $155.00 million.

    Thomson Reuters Company's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $3.630 billion. The EBITDA margin is 28.58 percent (the operating margin is 11.66 percent and the net profit margin 1.22 percent).

    Financials: The total debt represents 25.46 percent of Thomson Reuters Company's assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 51.50 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 0.75 percent was realized by Thomson Reuters Company.

    Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $0.50. Last fiscal year, Thomson Reuters Company paid $1.30 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

    Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 78.43, the P/S ratio is 2.48 and the P/B ratio is finally 2.03. The dividend yield amounts to 3.34 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 0.86. - See more here: These Dividend Contenders May Rise Dividends Within The Next 3 Months...

  • 5 Dividend Champions With Higher Dividends In 3 Months

    No one has a crystal-ball but when we look forward in the dividend growth space we have a great possibility to find stocks that may raise dividends in the near future in order to keep their status.

    Today I like to introduce some Dividend Champions that need to hike dividends over the next three month. They did grow dividend over more than 25 years, why stopping now?

    In total, 13 stocks must grow dividends of which two are High-Yields. For sure most of the 13 stocks have grown their dividends by a low rate of less than 10 percent annually. The fastest Champ was Archer-Daniels-Midland with a 5-Year dividend growth rate of 7.9 percent.

    Small dividend hikes are not bad. Remember, the inflation is also low and a 3 percent dividend hike could hedge your investment.

    The best performing stock from the list was the financial services company McGraw Hill. Since 2010, the company went up 150 percent while the worst performer, AT&T realized only a gain of around 18 percent.

    These are my 5 favorites...

    #1 McGraw Hill Financial (NYSE:MHFI) has a market capitalization of $23.66 billion. The company employs 17,000 people, generates revenue of $4.875 billion and has a net income of $903.00 million.

    McGraw Hill Financial's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $1,542.00 million. The EBITDA margin is 31.63 percent (the operating margin is 28.82 percent and the net profit margin 18.52 percent).

    Financials: The total debt represents 13.18 percent of McGraw Hill Financial's assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 61.41 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 78.53 percent was realized by McGraw Hill Financial.

    Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $3.26. Last fiscal year, McGraw Hill Financial paid $1.12 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

    Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 26.55, the P/S ratio is 4.82 and the P/B ratio is finally 18.03. The dividend yield amounts to 1.39 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 1.13. - See more here: 5 Dividend Champions With Higher Dividends In 3 Months

  • 16 Dividend Paying Growth Stocks That Could Double Sales And Income

    As a long-term investor, I'm seeking stocks that grow over the long-term. My optimum case by selecting a stock is that the company is acting within a positive business environment and could grow sales over the past decade by around 100 percent.

    There are a lot of companies out there who have doubled sales and over doubled net income within the recent 10 years. That's no joke and quiet possible.

    Today I like to show you 16 growth stocks with a good growth history that pay currently solid dividends and have no or nearly no debt. In addition, analysts predict a 5+ percent EPS growth for the next five years.
