Apparel giant VF Corporation (NYSE:VFC) is on the rebound.
Two years ago, VF Corp was trading near $77 per share. But it has fallen steadily since. It finally bottomed out at $49.56 on February 3.
The stock has gained some ground back. Investor hopes were buoyed by the company's solid fourth-quarter earnings report.
VF Corp's strong brands, steady earnings growth, and 3% dividend yield help it score very well using The 8 Rules of Dividend Investing.
VF Corp is a great dividend growth company. It has raised its dividend for 44 years in a row.
