BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- These five blue-chip stocks are getting ready to raise dividends. They just don't know it yet.
It doesn't take a professional market technician to notice that volatility is getting dumped back into the markets in June. The VIX Volatility Index spiked to its highest point this year on the big price swings that Mr. Market's been struggling through, and that's left investors wondering if now's a good time to have exposure to stocks. But there's a way to shed some of that volatility right now: look to get some of your returns in cold, hard cash.
The biggest, most stable companies are paying out bigger dividends than ever right now, so investors looking to earn part of their annual returns in cash are getting some stability versus the broad market right now. Getting cash dividends is great, but finding stocks that can continually pay you bigger dividends is even better.
