Dear Fellow Investor,
Most investors still don’t understand dividend stocks.
Because they spend way too much time obsessing over one figure—the dividend yield—and ignore stocks with payouts below some arbitrary number, say 2%, which is about what the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) pays.
Consider Visa (V), a stock that gets zero love from the dividend crowd, no thanks to its 0.69% trailing-twelve-month yield, which has gone nowhere for five years:
Visa’s Dividend Downer
But if you’ve ignored Visa because of its low yield, you’ve missed out big time—this “boring” chart is actually a sign of powerful growth.
Because what it’s really showing us is that investors have been bidding up V’s share price in lockstep with its payout hikes (because you calculate yield by dividing the annual dividend by the current share price).
And that dividend growth has been obscene:
The Story Yield Doesn’t Tell
That comes out to a 200% increase over five years! Put it all together, and you can see exactly how those hikes have thrown a relentless lift under the share price, propelling the stock up almost exactly as much as the dividend.
An Unmistakable Pattern
So if you’d bought in five years ago, you’d actually be sitting on a 215% total return (including dividends) on your Visa shares today. And forget about a 0.69% yield—you’d be reaping 2.3%.
The bottom line? You need to look beyond yield when picking dividend stocks. Adding two other stats will give you a more complete picture:
- The payout ratio—or the percentage of earnings paid out as dividends in the last 12 months—is a measly 23%, so V has plenty of dividend-growth juice left. I consider any figure below 50% a sign of a safe dividend.
- Earnings growth: in its latest quarter, Visa’s earnings per share (EPS) jumped 7.5%, to $0.86; the Street expected EPS to fall to $0.78. For the full year, analysts see EPS hitting $3.32, up from $2.84 last year.
My Top 3 Dividend Growers
With Big Hikes Ahead
Visa is just one of many stocks primed for big dividend (and share price) growth in the next few months, no matter happens with the Federal Reserve or on the markets.
But you can set yourself up for even bigger gains if you zero in on cheap, off-the-radar companies that also boast outsized payout growth. All you have to do is troll the market’s less-traveled corners, such as the midcap space, or stocks with market caps between, say $2 billion and $10 billion.
Here are three “small fry” stocks that fit the bill perfectly. All are cheap right now—mainly because Wall Street can’t be bothered to cover them—but they’ll take off as they move onto the herd’s radar. Throw in their soaring payouts, and you’re easily set up for triple-digit gains in short order.
So let’s dive in, starting with….
Growth Rocket #1:
The Backbone of E-Commerce
These days, more packages are showing up at our doorsteps than ever before, and online shopping is growing at a breakneck pace, jumping 15% in 2015 alone.
Despite that incredible growth, only 8% of all purchases are made over the web, so the trend still has lots of room to run.
But if you think Amazon.com is the best way to play it, you’d be wrong.
Fact is, Jeff Bezos’ company pays no dividend, and I just can’t recommend a stock trading at 174 times earnings—no matter how good its prospects.
Instead, my top e-commerce pick is as boring as can be: it’s a REIT that buys warehouses, then leases them out to e-commerce companies and a wide range of other businesses. Its second-biggest customer runs six websites peddling everything from diapers to patio furniture.
Funds from operations have soared 178% in the last seven years, delivering investors a 446% total return since 2009.
How’d this dynamic outfit do it? “The old fashioned way,” as their veteran CEO puts it: driving occupancy rates from 88% to a superb 96%—then raising the rent as they leased out more space.
Its old-school “boots-on-the-ground” sales approach has worked beautifully. The REIT increased its FFO per share by 14% in 2016 over 2015, and it’s on pace to grow even faster in 2017, meaning the dividend will double every three or four years from its 3% yield today.
And of course, we’ll see big gains in the share price as FFO continues its relentless march higher.
This stock is an active recommendation for paying Hidden Yields subscribers, so it wouldn’t be fair for me to give out its name here, for all to see. That’s why I’ve put everything you need to know in a just-published special report.
I’ll show you how to get your copy FREE in just a couple more minutes. First, let me tell you about my other two picks, starting with…
Growth Rocket #2:
The Unsung Bank To Triple Your Money
My favorite bank stock is so far below the radar just one lonely analyst covers it.
That obscurity works in our favor. Because this 123-year-old Iowa-based lender yields a tidy 3% today, but I fully expect it to double its payout—at the very least. When that happens, you’ll be yielding a super-safe 6% on your initial investment!
Being the conservative sort that I am, I’m probably underestimating that figure. And dividend growth is just the start.
Plus I’m banking on 200% price gains as this smartly run outfit’s stock rises in tandem.
How do I know? Because that’s exactly what’s happened since 2010, when the bank’s scrappy CEO, backed by his 28 years of experience in the business, took the helm and went on to deliver 364% total returns, driven by 240% dividend growth!
This tough-as-nails industry vet is just getting warmed up: he’s teeing up a new market in Minnesota, which has the 10th-highest median household income in the nation and the fifth-lowest unemployment rate.
Our man knows the state inside and out, because it’s where he racked up most of his experience as a banking exec.
The bank’s loan quality is great, too. Non-performing assets (loans in jeopardy of default) as a percentage of overall assets were a microscopic 0.07% over the past 12 months—a tiny fraction of the industry average.
Here’s the kicker: the bank’s executives are bullish, buying a collective 95,127 shares for their own personal accounts last year, far more than they sold.
Insiders Load Up
At times like this, it pays to remember the words of Peter Lynch, one of history’s greatest investors: “Insiders might sell their shares for any number of reasons, but they buy them for only one: they think the price will rise.”
I think this bank’s canny execs are right—and now is your chance to profit right alongside them.
Growth Rocket #3:
The Dividend Doubler
My third pick makes no one’s list of attractive growth stocks. That’s because it’s in one of the most boring businesses there is: containerboard, which this off-the-radar company turns into packaging for everything from produce to in-store displays.
But that low profile is just fine by us. We’ll happily buy now and watch our initial 3% yield double in the next five years, nicely building on the 152% payout growth—and 204% total return—shareholders have seen in the last five.
Those gains are backstopped by this steady-Eddie’s rock-solid business, which gives it free cash flow (FCF) that rolls in like clockwork and is double what it pays out as dividends. That gives it plenty of room to keep those hikes coming.
Your timing couldn’t be better, either, because several powerful catalysts are coming together to send free cash flow arcing higher, taking the dividend payout—and the share price—right along with it.
For one, the containerboard industry is consolidating, letting my pick grab new customers and boost its prices at the same time. That’s putting a nice lift under its profit margins.
Now management is going on offense, putting its ironclad balance sheet to work to make savvy acquisitions. It recently snapped up a major competitor, effectively doubling its sales overnight.
This is one of the most intensely focused management teams I’ve ever seen, and it’s on the hunt for more deals. Led by their visionary CEO, an industry superstar with more than 20 years’ experience, they’ll no doubt bag another one soon, giving the shares even more upside.
But despite everything this stock has going for it, remains cheap, trading at just 15-times FCF today. That’s fine by management, however, as they’ve jumped on that cheap valuation to buy back shares.
This is giving us the proverbial icing on the cake: fewer shares outstanding, which boosts earnings per share and magnifies the company’s dividend hikes, because it has fewer shares on which to pay out.
The bottom-line case for this total-return machine is simple: a 3% dividend yield, plus 7% to 8% annual payout growth gives us 10%+ secure gains. Then we sit back and watch as cost savings, buybacks and internal and external growth send the company’s profits—and share price—soaring.
Your Roadmap to
Big Profits in 2017
It’s only a matter of time before investors start piling into these three undervalued winners. Which means the best time to buy is now.
That’s why my team and I have prepared an in-depth report on all three of these must-own companies. It’s called “The 3 Best Dividend Growth Stocks to Buy in 2017.”
We’ve gone further than ever before to put this unique report together, sifting through thousands of stocks from across the globe to zero in on our top three.
We then took a deep dive into each one, carefully analyzing quarterly reports going back years to secure and “safety check” each stock before giving it our final seal of approval.
We just recently clicked “save” on the final draft. Even then, I held it back, just to make sure every “i” was dotted and “t” was crossed.
Now we’re ready to start selling it to the general public, with a cover price of $99.
But you won’t have to pay anywhere near that. In fact, for a limited time, you can get this exclusive report free of charge—and before anyone else gets a look at these 3 undervalued gems.
Inside, you’ll find the ticker symbol, my buy-up-to price and in-depth backstory on each and every one of these 3 companies. You’ll understand the rationale behind where, why and how to profit.
It’s everything you need to know before you invest a single penny.

Uncover These 3 Incredible
Growth Plays Today
As I just said, this in-depth report gives you my 3 favorite buys for triple-digit gains and yearly double-digit dividend hikes. But I want to make sure you don’t miss out on all the other new opportunities we uncover in the months ahead.
That’s why I’m making “The 3 Best Dividend Growth Stocks to Buy in 2017” available to you absolutely free with a risk-free 60-day trial to Hidden Yields.
My Hidden Yields picks are perfect for savvy investors looking to grab spectacular gains in the near term and huge yields on your initial investment down the road, thanks to their soaring dividend payouts.
I’m talking about safe yields of 12% and gains of 200%, 300% and more!
Sure, you could buy a stock with a 12% yield now but you could be taking a big risk, because payouts like those often come from dangerous stocks like mortgage REITs or business development companies (BDCs).
Don’t be seduced by their high yields when there are better businesses to own, like the 3 picks in my new special report.
These companies yield around 3% now, but when you hold them for a few years, the yield on your initial buy-in soars while their current yields stay about the same as more investors buy the stock.
That tidal wave of new buyers pushes the share price higher, increasing the value of your investment by the same amount.
The result? In just a few years, you’ll be looking at an income stream that’s quadrupled in size and triple-digit share-price gains, to boot!
Your Safety Is My No. 1 Concern
Most companies growing their payouts fast enough to drive gains like that are smaller businesses with little analyst coverage, so they’re tough for everyday investors to spot.
But when you sample Hidden Yields, you’ll get instant access to the 14 under-the-radar picks in the publication’s portfolio—the vast majority of which are hiking their payouts at double-digit rates—and the new buys my staff and I turn up month in and month out.
I do all the digging for you, recommending only the safest dividend growers and keeping you well clear of companies funding their payouts with borrowed money—or worse, betting the farm on shaky business models that will crumble at the first hint of a downturn.
We send out new recommendations the instant they become worthy of your investment dollars, plus regular updates on our earlier recommendations, all in plain, everyday English.
And of course, you’ll also get my latest special report, “The 3 Best Dividend Growth Stocks to Buy in 2017,” absolutely free.

Free Bonus #2:
High Tech “Pick & Shovel” Payouts
for 15-20%+ Annual Gains
Few technology companies pay dividends when they’re in growth mode. But that’s no reason for income-focused investors miss out on the sector’s unstoppable growth.
During the gold rush of the 1840s, hordes flocked to California with hopes of striking it rich. But those who made the real money were the entrepreneurs who sold the “picks and shovels” to the hapless speculators.
In this report, we take a page from the same playbook and reveal two rock-solid dividend growers behind the biggest tech names on the planet.
One has over 900 long-term contracts in place with clients like Microsoft, Cisco, IBM and HP. The company has quadrupled its payout over the last 6 years, sending share prices up by more than 400%.
Our other tech play manufactures a must-have component used on 4.5 billion devices – smartphones, tablets and computers – around the world. Its raised its dividend by 80% over the last 5 years while buying back an incredible 37% of shares outstanding.

Free Bonus #3:
Shareholder Yield: How to Identify
Double-Digit Returns From Buybacks
Done right, share buybacks can light a fire under stock returns. They also act like a magnifying glass on dividend payments because they cut the number of shares outstanding, leaving fewer for the company to pay out on.
But many companies are going too far: paying out more in buybacks than they’re bringing in through free cash flow.
Worse, many buy back their stock willy-nilly, without making sure it’s a good value first. There’s no better way to destroy shareholder value than by repurchasing overpriced stock.
This report gives you everything you need to know to make sure the companies you invest in are buying back shares the right way—not simply burning up cash that would be better used as dividends or to develop revolutionary new products.
