3 Top Dividend Growth Stocks Benefiting From A Growing Online Business

As technology changes, business models change as well. The Internet has changed the world, from the way we communicate to being a part of business models that didn’t exist a decade ago to even affecting the retail sector.

Investors have seen as people move away from brick-and-mortar stores and move towards online. There are many companies paying a dividend and growing that dividend over time.

It is difficult to find companies that will share the profits with shareholders in the form of dividends and that are adjusting businesses to technological changes.

I’ve focused on the following companies that pay dividends to their shareholders and are increasing both their online presence and their payout over time. Below are three large-cap dividend growth stocks that reward the shareholder base time and again.
