7 Good Running Companies That May Pay A Dividend For The First Time

Dividends are great but not all companies pay a dividend. Why? Well, there are many reasons, some might put all free cash-flow into the business in order to boost growth or they are buying back own shares and increases your stake in the company.

Those activities make only sense whey they have a stable running and continuous growing business like McDonalds or Coca Cola.

The second reason why a corporate pays no dividend is because they do not earn money and make losses. That's a really bad issue and I can tell you that it doesn't make sense to put money into a loss-generating machine.

Back to the topic of this article, today I like to introduce 7 stocks with a forward-orientated business that did not pay dividends buy may do it in the near future. It's always great to see what kind of stocks may appear on your dividend radar before others might see it.

Don't look to critical at the P/E valuation. The Enterprise Value gives a more fair view of the stocks. Most of them sit on tons of cash. I've written also a good article about stocks with the biggest cash accounts abroad. GE was on the first place there.
