Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT)Dividend Increase: 15%

It’s been a difficult and disappointing first half for Caterpillar (CAT) as its stock is one of the few in the Dow Jones average to show a loss (8.65%) during the year. However the company rewarded shareholders with a new payout of 60 cents per share per quarter, which today yields investors just under 3%. CAT is still in strong financial shape, and InvestorPlace contributor James Brumley views the stock with cautious optimism. While you wait for the rebound, keep cashing those dividend checks.
