Week 21

We’ll start the week off with Energizer Holdings (ENR). The home of the Energizer Bunny also sells products under several familiar brands such as Eveready, Rayovac, ArmorAll and STP. They are a component of the S&P 400 and have been around for more than 100 years. The current yield is 2.54%.

For Tuesday, we’ll go with Wynn Resorts (WYNN). The company operates several huge resorts and casinos in Las Vegas and Macau. In 2018 the controversial founder and CEO resigned along with a couple board members and the corporate culture has changed significantly. They are a component of the NASDAQ 100 and the S&P 500 and the current dividend yield is just above 3.1%.

Southside Bancshares (SBSI) gets the Wednesday slot. This community bank has 59 branches in Texas and $6.2 billion in assets. Dividend payouts have increased for the last 21 straight years and the current yield is just above 3.5%.

Hershey Company (HSY), a repeat from week 8, is the pick for Thursday. As mentioned last time, HSY has a perfect DARS™ rating on Dividend.com. This means its earnings growth, dividend growth and reliability, relative strength and yield are all above average compared to its peers in the market. Back in February, we took in a $0.72 payout and a $1.85 capital gain per share for a return of 2.36%. The current yield is just under 2.3%.

We’ll finish out the week with First Hawaiian Bank (FHB). Founded in 1858, this is Hawaii’s oldest and largest bank with 57 branches. FHB is a component of the Russell 1000 and the current yield is 3.8%.
