  • Dividend stocks boast making regular distributions to their shareholders
  • The Warehouse Group will pay a dividend of 10.0 cps next week

Dividend stocks are those companies that pay a portion of their earnings to their investors on a regular basis, which may be quarterly, half-yearly or annually.

These companies have a strong financial footing and perform relatively well even during rocky market conditions as compared to their peers. Hence, investors, both seasoned as well as beginners, are drawn toward such dividend-paying stocks.

With this background, let us look at the three NZX-listed dividend stocks- The Warehouse Group Limited (NZX:WHS), Restaurant Brands New Zealand Limited (NZX:RBD) and Millennium & Copthorne Hotels New Zealand Limited (NZX:MCK), which are distributing dividends in coming days.
