If you’re a fan of small caps, high dividends, and dividend-growth stocks, then this article is a dream come true. I’ve scoured the market and found three stocks that are all of the above, so let’s take a quick look at each to determine which would fit best in your portfolio.
1. Pason Systems Inc.
Pason Systems Inc. (TSX:PSI) is one of the world’s leading providers of specialized data management systems and solutions for drilling rigs, including data acquisition, well-site reporting, and remote communications. It currently pays a dividend of $0.17 per share quarterly, or $0.68 per share annually, which gives its stock a 3.8% yield at today’s levels.
It is also important for investors to note that Pason Systems has raised its annual dividend payment for 12 consecutive years, and I think its ample free cash flow, including $75.4 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2015, could allow this streak to continue in 2016.
2. Corus Entertainment Inc.
Corus Entertainment Inc. (TSX:CJR.B) is one of the largest integrated media and entertainment companies in Canada. It currently pays a dividend of $0.095 per share monthly, or $1.14 per share annually, which gives its stock a 10.65% yield at today’s levels.
Investors must also note that Corus has raised its annual dividend payment for 12 consecutive years, and its 4.6% increase in February 2015 puts it on pace for 2016 to mark the 13th consecutive year with an increase.
3. Plaza Retail REIT
Plaza Retail REIT (TSX:PLZ.UN) is one of Canada’s largest owners and operators of commercial real estate with 307 properties totaling approximately seven million square feet of gross leasable area. It currently pays a distribution of $0.02167 per share monthly, or $0.26 per share annually, which gives its stock a 5.8% yield at today’s levels.
It is also important for investors to note that Plaza has raised its annual distribution for 12 consecutive years, and its 4% increase in November 2015, which is effective for its January 2016 payment, puts it on pace for 2016 to mark the 13th consecutive year with an increase.
