The world's largest software maker by revenue, Microsoft is stable and cash-rich, with over $77 billion on its books. However, that has not stopped the company from increasing its dividend every year for more than 12 years. TCW Dividend-Focused Fund portfolio manager Diane Jaffee told CNBC in March that she believes "there's still lots of room for dividend growth" for MSFT.
Microsoft currently pays a quarterly dividend of $0.28, for a yield of 2.71%. MSFT stock is up 11.15% year to date and traded at $41.55 per share on Monday.
