Dividend Machine for week of May 28, 2012 – Raytheon (RTN)

                Hopefully your had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend.  Consistent with the ideas we explore during events like Memorial Day, I thought it appropriate to look at Aerospace and Defense stocks.  In 2011, I mentioned several of these companies.  2012 ‘s dividend ideas are similar to 2011 and Raytheon is one of the best dividend machines for ordinary investors.

Raytheon has paid a dividend since 1964 and has raised that dividend every year for seven years.  Most recently, Raytheon increased the quarterly dividend from $.43 to $.50 per share.  Now folks, what other investment do you own that increased your income by over sixteen percent?    

               The point of this web/blog is to provide income investing ideas.   Income that increases over time is a very important characteristic of an income portfolio.  Based on the data in the following table, I think Raytheon (RTN) is a good choice for income investors.  Review this chart for all four dividend machine criteria and you will find RTN is worthy of being a dividend machine in both 2011 and 2012.
