8 Companies Likely to Issue "Tax Cut" Dividend Increases in 2019 - 1 of 9

 
8 Companies Likely to Issue Tax Cut Dividend IncreasesPresident Trump and Congress passed the first major tax legislation in the last 30 years.. The legislation cut the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, created a new deduction for pass-through businesses and lowered tax rates for every bracket. This once-in-a-generation legislation should place hundreds of billions of dollars back in the pockets of corporations, but which companies will return these dollars to investors in the form of increased dividends?

Some companies will use the money they save in taxes or the money they repatriate overseas to reinvest in their businesses. For example, Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) has announced it will be reinvesting $50 billion into its infrastructure over the next several years because of the new tax policy. Other companies may use the money to repurchase stock, but companies likely to repurchase shares over raising their dividends tend to be growth companies that are significant overvalued in the present market.

There will however be a number of companies that will boost their dividends to reward shareholders. Companies that already have strong cash flow and don't have great reinvestment opportunities to grow their businesses will be the most likely to raise their dividends.

Let's review some of the companies most likely to raise their dividends because of the tax reform act.
