Dear DRIP Investors,


We have been helping people enroll in DRIPs since 1986. Many of our subscribers have written to express their thanks and describe the outcome of their DRIP investments. It has been a source of pride and our great pleasure to have assisted in your efforts to secure financial security.


However, after 35 years we have decided to stop fulfilling orders for enrollments after the March cycle. Moneypaper, via the directinvesting.com website, will continue to provide information about DRIPs and the enrollment process.


As always, good luck,

Vita Nelson

28 DRIP Stocks Increasing Payouts Soon


After the market volatility that started 2016, it's clearly a perfect time to focus on the benefits provided by companies with lengthy streaks of annual dividend increases, a feature that enhances the compounding achieved by Dividend Reinvestment (DRIPs) and Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA). There are more than 330 companies that have raised their dividend for at least five straight years and offer company-sponsored DRIPs. Owning such companies magnifies returns by using reinvested dividends that are steadily rising to generate dividends of their own.

 

Among the companies that have recently declared a dividend increase are Cisco Systems (CSCO) (6 years, Ex-Div. 4/4/16), Hasbro Inc. (HAS) (13 years, Ex-Div. 4/28/16), PepsiCo Inc. (PEP) (44 years, Ex-Div. 6/1/16), and Sempra Energy (SRE) (13 years, Ex-Div. 3/23/16). Buying such stocks just before the Ex-Dividend Date gets the “compounding machine” running as soon as possible, so keeping an eye on the previous year's increase date provides a distinct advantage over other investors.

 

Here's a sampling of candidates that have established a history of steadily rising dividends and have Ex-Dividend Dates coming up in the weeks ahead:

 

 

No.Yrs=Consecutive years of higher dividends; MR=Most Recent; DGR=Dividend Growth Rate.
