If you were looking for income over the course of 2018, you certainly found it in spades. That’s because firms were awash in cash and they rewarded shareholders in a big way. Thanks to rising profits, a hefty dose of tax reform and continued economic growth, stocks handed out a record number of dividends throughout the year. Buyback activity surged as well, adding to already record amounts.

The best part is that 2019 is already shaping up to be a banner year for income and dividend seekers.

With stocks still minting money, investors looking for strong payout growth should be amply rewarded. The time to continue tilting toward dividend and dividend-growth stocks is still at hand.
