Nearly 30-Year-Increasing Commercial Regional Bank Added to Best Dividend Growth Stocks Model Portfolio

When it comes to the regional banks, where you operate is what matters most. For our latest Best Dividend Growth Stocks Model addition, its region has managed to drive its returns for over 150 years. And in that time, our pick has continued to see plenty of deposit, asset and loan growth to make it one of the largest banks in the entire nation. Income investors have won as well, with our bank posting nearly 30-years’ worth of dividend increases.

You can check out the Best Dividend Growth Stocks Model Portfolio to explore all the stocks.

The reason for the wins? Our bank’s focus is on Texas. Starting in San Antonio back in the 1800s, our pick has continued to expand throughout the state and its major cities. Thanks to M&A, our pick has continued to boost deposits and loans. And thanks to a focus on commercial and high-net-worth clients, our pick has seen its assets surge.

Proof of its success is that our pick was able to not take TARP/bailout money during the Great Recession, allowing it to keep its dividend going and take advantage of opportunities in other markets like insurance and commercial real estate. The end result for investors has been a top-notch regional bank that is just as successful as the major money-centered names.

In order to make room for our new bank pick, we’ve been forced to remove a packaging firm from the portfolio.
