40 Dividend Stocks With Potential To Boost Future Payments

In volatile markets, investors look for both growth and income in their portfolios. This can be achieved by honing in on companies that not only pay dividends but have been consistently increasing their payout. 

Stocks that have a history of enhancing shareholder returns through consistent dividend hikes make an investor’s portfolio immune to large swings in stock prices in turbulent times.

Simultaneously, these offer outsized payouts or sizable yields on a regular basis irrespective of the market direction. Although these stocks do not necessarily have the highest yields, they are proven outperformers over the long term.

In today's screen you will find a couple of stocks with good potential to hike dividends for the next years. Each of the stocks have attractive fundamentals in my view.
