5 Dividend Stocks Set to Give Shareholders a Raise

Stocks in this article: BALVSNEMTROWMHP

Without further ado, here's a look at five stocks that could be about to increase their dividend payments in the next quarter.

Boeing

Aerospace giant Boeing (BA) is having a great week, never mind the fact that shares are off a couple of percentage points since the market started dropping on Tuesday -- after all, BA saw its 787 book its first flight in revenue service this week.

After long delays and economic potholes, the launch of the 787 into passenger service is a huge relief for the investors who've been waiting for Boeing to meet milestones. That's because with efficiency that's around 20% better than other aircraft in the class, the 787 has the potential to greatly impact the fortunes of profit-challenged airlines.

Airliners are only half of Boeing's business, though. The only half comes from the defense industry, where Boeing manufactures aircraft like the KC-46A refueling tanker used by the U.S. Air Force. While defense spending has some big black clouds over it, the mission-critical nature of BA's contracts should help make them last to see the axe. And the fact that only 19% of Boeing's backlog comes from defense helps to spread the risk away from the firm's current valuation.

Financially, Boeing is cruising in calm air. Aircraft manufacturing isn't a cheap business to enter, but BA has relatively little leverage on its balance sheet and a huge $11.2 billion cash and investment position that should ensure that the firm has more than enough liquidity to take on any unexpected speed bumps along the way. With 787 backlog finally getting converted into revenues, the firm looks well positioned for a dividend hike. Currently Boeing's 44-cent payout equates to a 2.48% yield.

Las Vegas Sands

Don't let the name fool you -- Vegas has become a small part of the business being brought in at Las Vegas Sands (LVS). Today, the casino operator generates close to 85% of its revenues in Asia, at big-ticket locales like Macau, Singapore, and Cotai. Strong gambling performance overseas should help to fuel a dividend hike in the next quarter for LVS -- currently, the firm pays out a 25-cent quarterly dividend. That's a 2.34% yield at current price levels.
