Investors seeking out growth stocks often discard dividends as unimportant, but they really shouldn't. After all, there's no greater sign of a company's health than the regular, consistent payment of dividends. When the board of directors approves the payment of the quarterly dividend, it sends the unmistakable message that more cash is expected down the road. Thus, a focus on dividends can help you improve the quality of your growth portfolio. "We consider a reliable and growing dividend to be a major sign of a company's health," says Chase Robertson, principal of Houston-based RIA Robertson Wealth Management. "Limiting your pool of available stocks to dividend payers immediately improves the quality of the portfolio." Today, we will look at seven solid dividend-paying growth stocks. It's not unusual for growth stocks to return 20% or more per year when they're on a good run, so the dividends paid will be a small part of the total return. It's exceptionally rare for a true growth stock to sport a high dividend yield. Still, it's nice getting paid something in cold, hard cash. If anything, the dividend allows you to realize a small portion of your gains along the way without having to sell your shares. SEE ALSO: 53 Best Dividend Stocks for 2018 and Beyond
