10 Blue Chip Stocks Boosting Dividends for Investors
Yield doesn’t come easy these days. With interest rates at near zero, banks are paying only a pittance. Treasury bonds still are a safe place to play, but you won’t get paid very much for loaning the feds money. So, what’s a yield hungry investor’s best bet?
The answer is dividend-paying blue chip stocks.
Fortunately for income-oriented investors, there’s been no paucity of large companies pumping out bigger payouts to shareholders this year. In fact, 2012 has proven to be a stellar year when it comes to the number of big companies increasing their quarterly payouts to shareholders.
The latest blue chip to give more back to its owners is semiconductor-giant Intel (INTC), which raised its quarterly payout by 7%. Another company that recently poured out a bigger payout is beverage behemoth PepsiCo (PEP), which added 4.4% to its quarterly dividend. In fact, through April, nearly one-third of the mega-cap S&P 100 companies have increased their dividend payouts in 2012.
