Eight Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

Dividend Stock: American Eagle Outfitters (AEO - Get Report)

American Eagle Outfitters offers a high dividend yield for a small-cap retail stock, with more than 3% of the company's share price coming back to stockholders via annual payouts. American Eagle just upped the ante even more, raising its quarterly dividend 10% to 11 cents a share, saying the increase reflects its strong cash generation. The teen retail stock also repurchased 5.9 million shares for about $96 million.

If you want to share in this high-yield dividend retailer, make sure you buy in to AEO stock before the ex-dividend date of July 8. American Eagle has tumbled about 20% so far this year, with much of that loss coming after an analyst at MKM Partners downgraded the stock from "Buy" to "Neutral" on May 26. Caris & Co also downgraded the company's share to "Above Average" from "Buy" on June 1. But with a price-to-earnings ratio of around 17, the stock may be a decent bargain buy. American Eagle sales have also shown strength earlier in the year, so there may be hope yet for AEO stock.
