Update to My Watch List

Back to list of posts

March was a volatile month for the market and as a dividend growth investor something I have been waiting quite some time for as volatility creates opportunities to buy stocks on sale! With a combination of recent price drops and dividend increases 3 new stocks have made it onto my radar; Hasbro (HAS), Havertys (HVT), and Prudential Financial (PRU).


HAS Recent Dividend Yield: 2.99%
Most Recent Dividend Increase: 10.52% announced February 2018

Hasbro is one of the top toy manufacturers in the U.S. and has enjoyed 15 years of dividend growth. Hasbro currently has some stormy clouds overhead in the form of a Toys R Us bankruptcy and a miss on Star Wars Last Jedi toy sales. These risks have created a price pullback and potential to pickup a dividend grower on sale.


HVT Recent Dividend Yield: 3.57%
Most Recent Dividend Increase: 20% announced February 2018

Havertys is a specialty retailer of residential furniture and accessories in the United States. The company offers furniture merchandise under the Havertys brand name. It also provides custom upholstery products, as well as mattress product lines under the Sealy, Tempur-Pedic, Serta, Stearns & Foster, and Beautyrest Black names. It operates showrooms in 16 states in the Southern and Midwestern regions.


PRU Recent Dividend Yield: 3.48%
Most Recent Dividend Increase: 20% announced February 2018

Prudential Financial provides life insurance, annuity products, investment management, and other financial products and services in the United States and internationally. Affectionately referred to as “The Rock” has been in business since 1875 and has been increasing dividends for 9 straight years. An aspect I like about Prudential is they stay in the life insurance sector and are not engaged in riskier insurance programs like home, auto or health.
