5 Under-the-Radar Dividend Divas

Cintas

Cintas185 5 Under the Radar Dividend DivasMuch like Bemis, Cintas (NASDAQ:CTAS) is one of those companies that you do business with each week and don’t even know it. That’s because Cintas is the maker of uniforms for a wide variety of companies whose employees are required to wear what’s known in the industry as “corporate identity” clothing. Employees — such as those from restaurant behemoth McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD) — wear uniforms provided by Cintas, and that’s just one of thousands of well-known businesses that get their corporate identity wear from this under-the-radar dividend diva.

As for those dividends, the company has provided a well-fitting payout since 1984, and although the annual dividend yield is on the low side when compared to the other stocks in this list, CTAS shares still boast a respectable 1.4% yield. That yield might not be stellar, but when you consider that over the past two years, CTAS shares have surged nearly 44%, the stock becomes tailor-made for those looking to build an income portfolio that also provides a little extra share-price upside.
