Looking to add a new stock to your portfolio?
Or just wondering what a dividend increase is?
Chris Versace, Real Money contributor joined TheStreet to break down what a dividend increase is, and also gave a name to add to your portfolio.
"Recently I touched on the several new additions to the S&P Dow Jones Dividend Aristocrats, a group of S&P 500 constituents that have increased their dividends for at least 25 years. Now, I am circling back to the latest dividend payment from an existing Aristocrat: PepsiCo PEP," wrote Versace. "Widely known for its products that include Pepsi, Lays, Mountain Dew, Doritos, Gatorade, Tropicana and Aquafina water, the company has been paying consecutive quarterly cash dividends since 1965. Indeed, 2019 marked the company's 47th consecutive annual dividend increase, which has the company approaching the rarified air of the Dividend Kings. As a reminder, a Dividend King is an S&P 500 company that has increased its dividend for at least 50 consecutive years, an incredible achievement, which explains why there were only 28 such names in 2019."
