18 Stocks Growing Their Cash Dividends

 March 01, 2013 09:38 AM
 


When people learn that I am an income investor, the reaction is often a desire to discuss high-yield investments. Many people commonly confuse income investing with high-yield investing. The two are not the same. High-yield investing often carries a greater degree of risk than I am willing to accept. For me, I will continue to focus on high-quality dividend stocks at lower, but growing, yields.

Below are several dividend stocks that recently grew their yields by paying higher cash dividends:

The Chubb Corporation (CB) provides property and casualty insurance to businesses and individuals. February 28th the company increased its quarterly dividend 7.3% to $0.44 per share. The dividend is payable April 2, 2013 to shareholders of record on March 15, 2013. The yield based on the new payout is 2.1%.
