13 Dividend Stocks Increasing Payouts

Processed food producer ConAgra said this week its board approved a 15% increase to its quarterly dividend, bringing its shareholder payout to 23 cents per share for a current yield of 4.2%. The higher dividend will be paid Dec. 1 to shareholders of record on Oct. 29.

The maker of Chef Boyardee and Healthy Choice branded foods posted an 11% drop in fiscal first quarter profits to 34 cents per share, missing expectations by a nickel. Sales fell 2.4% year-over-year.

Realty Income (O - Get Report), a REIT that pays its dividends on a monthly -- rather than quarterly -- basis, raised its payout this week to 14.39 cents per share. The next payday will be Oct. 15 for shareholders of record on Oct. 1. That brings its current yield to 5.2%.

Realty Income was recently featured on TheStreet's list of dividend-paying all-stars, a ranking of REITs that have increased their shareholder payouts every year for at least the past decade.
