46 Dividend Stocks Increasing Payouts

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Simon Property Group (SPG), Goldcorp (GG) and Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) joined a roster of companies raising their shareholder payouts in recent weeks.

Dividend activity has picked up lately as companies begin to regain some sense of stability in the state of the economy, and visibility of future earnings growth. The iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend (DVY), an exchange-traded fund that tracks the Dow Jones U.S. Select Dividend Index, is up nearly 3% over the past month, and up 10% so far in 2010.

Cognex ( CGNX), maker of machine vision products, raised its dividend by 2 cents per share to 8 cents. It will be paid on Dec. 17 to shareholders of record on Dec. 3, bringing Cognex's yield to 1.2% on annualized basis.

Insurer Mercury General (MCY) boosted its quarterly payout by 1.7% to 60 cents per share. It will be paid on Dec. 30 to holders of record on Dec. 16. Mercury's new yield is 5.5%.

H&Q Healthcare Investors (HQH), a diversified closed-end management investment company, said Monday it will increase the rate of its managed distribution policy to 2% of net assets on a quarterly basis, up from 1.25%. The new payment will be available Dec. 30 to shareholders of record on Nov. 22.

Douglas Dynamics (PLOW), maker of snow plows and other snow- and ice-related equipment, announced a 10% increase to its planned fourth-quarter dividend. The 1.75-cent per share increase brings the payout to 20 cents, available to shareholders sometime in December.

Shopping mall owner and real estate investment trust Simon Property Group said Monday it raised its quarterly dividend by 33% to 80 cents per share. The new payout will be available Nov. 30 to shareholders of record on Nov. 16.

Simon Property's current yield is 3.3%.
