CSCO has an 8-year track record of Dividend Growth

The Ex-dividend date for this new dividend is April 2nd. The current yield is about 3% and the payout ratio is about 44%. All of those are appealing to me as a dividend-focused investor so we have 400 shares of this company. But earnings must grow. The track record is good for earnings growth as well.

Analyst earnings estimates are helpful but are not guarantees.
