10 solid dividend payouts from stocks

Historically low interest rates have made it difficult for income-oriented investors to generate secure cash flow for their retirement over the past decade.

Dividend-paying stocks have become more attractive to high-income investors because of their competitive returns, preferential tax treatment of dividends, and their ability to grow their payouts over time. While fixed rates on bond investments lose purchasing power over time due to inflation, the purchasing power of income from dividend growth stocks is better protected as companies tend to increase their dividend payments each year.

In this slideshow, we take a look at ten of the best high-dividend stocks that offer strong returns (over 3.5%), steady cash flow, and a strong track record of dividend growth. The companies in this slideshow have all increased their dividends every year for the past decade.

These companies also have low payout ratios (below 75%), which means they can keep paying their dividends if their profits drop temporarily.

Stock prices will always fluctuate, but the dividends paid by these solid dividend payers should remain safe with moderate earnings growth.
