One strategy is to invest in companies that pay growing dividends. Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) recently gave its investors a 10% raise, boosting its quarterly dividend payment by $0.07 per share to $0.75 ($3.00 annualized). On the one hand, Microsoft's current dividend yield might not appeal to income-seeking investors since it's currently less than 1% even after the increase.
Ever since Starbucks (SBUX) has initiated its dividend in 2010, the company is raising it in each of the previous 13 years.
