March Top Industrial Dividend Payers

Will Harmon

The industrials sector tends to be highly cyclical, impacting companies operating in an array of areas such as building products, aerospace and defence. As such, the position a company has relative to the economic cycle drives its level of profitability. This impacts cash flows which in turn determines the level of dividend payout. During times of growth, these industrial names could provide a strong boost to your portfolio income. As a long term investor, I favour these industrials stocks with great dividend payments that continues to add value to my portfolio.
