5 Dividend Stocks Set to Give Shareholders a Raise

LVS owns the Sands, Venetian, and Palazzo names, as well as a Four Seasons franchise in Macau, laying claim to a handful of the most successful casino resort brands in the gaming industry. Macau is really the crown jewel of LVS' operations -- and its tight regulation helps ensure that competition is limited to the few firms that can grab one of just six licenses to operate casinos in China. LVS owns two of them.

While the gaming industry took a big hit in the aftermath of the Great Recession, huge spending in Macau has more than made up for the shortfall back in Vegas. Now, as Las Vegas starts to show a more meaningful recovery, LVS should be able to secure some impressive profitability in 2013. That paves the way for a dividend hike in the next quarter.

Newmont Mining

It's been a tough year for gold bugs. As the price of everyone's favorite precious metal meandered sideways, gold miners have taken a huge hit, with Newmont Mining (NEM) down almost 20% so far this year. That shouldn't stop Newmont from offering investors a dividend hike in the next quarter.

Newmont weighs in as the second-largest gold producer in the world. The firm owns around 99 million ounces of proven and probable gold reserves, and pulled close to 6 million ounces out of the ground last year alone. For dividend investors, especially those who want diversification from the dollar, Newmont is a strong choice.

Last year, Newmont announced that it would start linking its dividend payout to the price of gold, a move that makes a lot of sense. Since many of Newmont's investors buy shares because they want exposure to gold as a currency, indexing the dividend to gold prices makes shares much more attractive, even if the dividends are paid in dollars. Because Newmont's profitability is extremely sensitive to gold prices, a gold-linked dividend also means that Newmont's dividend obligations shrink when gold prices do.

Many investors seem to be forgetting the fact that gold is still at historic highs right now. Even though Newmont isn't the league leader in low-cost gold production, it's still able to make substantial profits from $1740 gold. As central bank moves like QE3 stand to devalue the dollar, gold should regain its shine in 2013. Meanwhile, the gold rally of the past few months puts Newmont on track to post a dividend hike.
