Investors Should Demand More Dividends From These 5 Stocks

A company that is growing its earnings substantially but not increasing its dividends could be a red flag for investors

SmallCapPower | May 2, 2016: Although dividend payouts are completely at management’s discretion, a company that keeps retaining more earnings (and sometimes even lowering its dividends) when its earnings rise, is an investment that should be reconsidered. This could include the stocks on our list today. Unless the company is looking to use the funds for acquisitions or debt repayment, the residual earnings should rightfully flow back to investors.
