10 Dividend Stocks Paying More Cash

 April 22, 2011 12:51 PM

Payback is the amount of time needed for an investment to earn its cost, undiscounted. Though not very sophisticated, payback can still help you screen for good, solid dividend growth stocks. Once you earn back your investment, some might say you are in a no-lose situation. I wouldn't go quite that far, but you have found an investment that has provided you a good historical revenue stream, and hopefully it will continue to do so in the future.

Below are several dividend stocks that recently rewarded their shareholders with increased cash dividends:

PPG Industries (PPG) serves customers in industrial, transportation, consumer products, and construction markets and aftermarkets. April 21st the company increased its quarterly dividend 3.6% to $0.57/share. The dividend is payable June 10 to shareholders of record May 10. This marks the company's 451st consecutive dividend payment. PPG has paid uninterrupted annual dividends since 1899. The yield based on the new payout is 2.4%.

General Electric Company (GE) is a diversified infrastructure, finance company. April 21st the company increased its quarterly dividend 7.1% to to $0.15/share.
