Dividend logo

Fly High with this aerospace & automation giant — just added to the Best Dividend Stocks list.

Dividend.com added an aerospace and automation giant to the Best Dividend Stocks list. With a 125-year history, this company has come a long way and is now a global powerhouse in engineering with more than half of its sales coming from outside the U.S. It earned approximately $40 billion in sales in 2015 and is set to grow its earnings by 8.5% in 2017 according to analyst expectations. This is on the back of a growth in EPS by 50% over the last five years.

This stock has annualized dividend growth rate of 12.2% over the past five years. With a decent yield and a mid-30% payout ratio, there is ample room for the company to continue growing its dividend.

Apart from its dividend strength, this stock has appreciated by 11% so far. As such, we are assigning a rating of 3.9 to this stock.

To summarize, here are 4 reasons why you should own this stock:

  • $40 billion in sales in 2015.
  • EPS increased by 50% in the last five years.
  • 125-year history since the company was incorporated.
  • Global presence: More than half of their revenue is from outside the U.S.

A Soft Removal From the Best Dividend Stocks List:

We have removed another aerospace & automation giant that has featured on our list since 2011. The stock has so far returned an incredible 230% excluding dividends. Though this stock is being removed from the list it still stays ‘Recommended’ with a rating of 3.5.
