The healthcare sector doesn’t offer the most attractive dividends, but it does allow you to invest in essential products and services. Health insurers with a vast network of customer and patient relationships fit that bill. Our latest addition to the Best Healthcare Dividend Stocks List is a major insurance player that has delivered strong dividend CAGR growth in recent years driven by a solid underlying business model. Our pick recently declared a 10% increase in its quarterly dividend rate to $1.23 per share, which can be grabbed by investors before its next ex-dividend date on Tuesday, March 7.
A combination of solid quarterly and full-year results, positive earnings guidance and a growing focus on shareholder value make our pick an attractive option for income investors.
