5 Low-Yield Dividend-Growth Stars to Consider Today

Investing in dividend-growth stocks is one of the most powerful and time-proven strategies to build wealth. This means that investors should favour stocks with modest yields that have the ability to grow their dividends over time over ones with high yields that have little to no growth potential. With this in mind, let’s take a look at five that you could buy right now.

1. Canadian National Railway Company

Canadian National Railway Company (TSX:CNR)(NYSE:CNI) is the largest rail network operator in Canada and one of the five largest in North America with about 21,000 miles of track. It’s also one of Canada’s largest full-load trucking companies with over 1,050 owner-operators, plus a fleet of 8,000 chassis and 8,000 containers.

It pays a quarterly dividend of $0.375 per share, or $1.50 per share annually, which gives its stock a yield of about 2% at today’s levels. It’s also very important to note that the company’s 20% hike in January has it on pace for 2016 to mark the 20th consecutive year in which it has raised its annual dividend payment.

CCL Industries Inc. (TSX:CCL.B) is the world’s largest label company, and it’s one of its leading providers of aluminum aerosol containers and bottles, digital printing solutions, and inventory management solutions.

It pays a quarterly dividend of $0.50 per share, or $2.00 per share annually, which gives its stock a yield of about 0.9% at today’s levels. It’s also very important to note that the company’s 33.3% dividend hike in February has it on pace for 2016 to mark the 15th consecutive year in which it has raised its annual dividend payment.

It pays a quarterly dividend of $0.51 per share, or $2.04 per share annually, which gives its stock a yield of about 1.1% at today’s levels. It’s also very important to note that the company’s two dividend hikes since the start of 2015, including its 24.4% hike last month, have it on pace for 2016 to mark the ninth consecutive year in which it has raised its annual dividend payment.
