As that company grows, you have a good chance of being rewarded with share price growth, dividends, or some combination of both. Often, the rewards compound -- and get better -- the longer you hold the shares, just like a long-term relationship with your Valentine. Eric Volkman (Digital Realty Trust): If I were to wrap a stock and gift it to a sweetheart, it'd be a solid company that generates its own presents -- dividends -- on a regular basis.
Shares of Genuine Parts (NYSE: GPC) gained 23.8% in 2022, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, as the auto industry continued to suffer from the global semiconductor shortage and supply chain issues. As both new and used vehicles were harder to find, which caused prices to soar to record levels, consumers committed to keeping their existing vehicles on the road longer, driving demand for aftermarket auto parts. Genuine Parts is the owner of the 9,600 retail stores that primarily operate under the NAPA Auto Parts banner.
The best dividend-paying companies are ones that go beyond the basics of simply directly paying their shareholders for the risks they take from investing. The way they do that is by increasing those dividends over time as the business grows, boosting the rewards of ownership and enabling those shareholders to profit while staying invested.
