High Yield Financial Shares With Growing Dividends

6 High-Yield Financial Services Stocks With Rising Dividends By Dividend Growth Stocks. The Financial Services Sector includes insurance companies, banks, brokerages, mutual funds and other similar companies. Before the 2008-09 financial services meltdown, these stocks were the cornerstone on many income portfolios. The companies were flush with cash, the stocks provided relatively high yields, good dividend growth rates and carried very little perceived risk.

This week week, I screened my dividend growth stocks database for Financial Services companies with a yield at or above 4% and have increased their dividends for at least 14 consecutive years.

The results are presented below:

Mercury General Corp. (MCY)
Yield: 6.2% | Years of Dividend Growth: 24

Old Republic International (ORI)
Yield: 6.0% | Years of Dividend Growth: 30

Cincinnati Financial Corp. (CINF)
Yield: 5.8% | Years of Dividend Growth: 51

People's United Financial Inc. (PBCT)
Yield: 4.6% | Years of Dividend Growth: 14
