Dividend stocks are especially attractive to retirees without a regular income coming in from employment.
While most dividend-paying companies dish out dividends on a half-yearly or yearly basis, some companies dole out money every quarter.
Those looking for a regular income stream might want to look into such stocks.
With that, here’s a look at three businesses that pay quarterly dividends that might entice dividend investors (sorted according to market capitalisation).
Company #1: DBS Group Holdings Ltd
Singapore’s biggest bank, DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), is kicking off the list.
The company is well-known among Singapore investors as it has been paying growing dividends over the years.
In 2019, DBS restarted paying quarterly dividends after a 10-year hiatus.
In its first-quarter earnings report that year, DBS said it would dish out dividends every quarter to provide “shareholders with more regular income streams”, instead of biannually, as was the case from 2011 to 2018.
