Dividend Stocks Are Back! | Reinstating & Rising From The Dividend Cuts

Marathon Oil (MRO): Marathon, like other energy players, completely turned off the dividend machine after Q1.  In fact, they waited 2 quarters, but have resumed and reinstated their dividend policy.  However, and here is the caveat, Marathon’s previous dividend was $0.05 per share, per quarter and the dividend that was reinstated stands at $0.03 per share, per quarter.

Now, these are only thee dividend stocks to resume their dividend payment.  There are MANY more, but I wanted to highlight a few large one’s that many investors have in their portfolio.  The resumption of the dividend is a great sign that dividend stocks are back!  That’s a primary reason why investors hold the stock, the feeling of ease finally is starting to come back.

Dividend stocks to watch for resuming or increasing their dividend

Disney (DIS): Disney, the magical and wonderful place to be, halted their dividend payouts in 2020.  In fact, we argue that the best move Disney has ever made was the launch of the Disney+ platform, it could not have been better timed with COVID-19.  Why?  Sports stopped.  Movie theaters and blockbuster movies stopped.  Theme parks were closed.  The Disney+ platform and their television entertainment arm kept their company afloat during COVID-19.
