According to the Kiplinger magazine that arrived today, there are some great stocks that have both healthy dividends and a healthy growth chart that you might want to think about investing in:
Expeditors Intl with a 5 year dividend growth rate of 34.5%.
Fastenal with an 82.1% dividend growth rate.
Harley-Davidson with a 46.5% dividend growth rate.
Johnson Controls – 12.6%
M&T Bank – 17.6%.
Praxair – 24.1%.
W.W. Grainger – 9.7% dividend growth rate.
The main point of the article is that while they do not offer the highest dividend payout, the stocks seem to be in a healthy place and should continue to grow….unlike Ford which normally pays out pretty well but for all we know might crash and burn if they do not clean up their act. As always, do your homework, but these might be worth looking in to!
