Even if you think you're too old to go trick-or-treating tomorrow night, investors never second-guess corporate candy. A company that asks shareholders to open wide as it throws fatter dividend checks into their open bags is offering some top-notch fiscal treats. A bigger yield usually means that a company is confident about its future earnings power, and that makes the sweet gesture even sweeter. Readers of the Income Investor newsletter can certainly appreciate that kind of thinking.
