The company has a long history of success.  Cardinal Health has increased its dividend for 32 consecutive years, making it a Dividend Aristocrat.

And, Cardinal Health’s stock currently yields 4.2%.  The combination of a long dividend history and a high current yield make Cardinal Health a potentially enticing pick for dividend growth investors.

Note:  I am long CAH.

While Cardinal Health’s dividend history is excellent, the company is facing headwinds today:

  • Intense competition within the pharmaceutical distribution industry
  • The threat of Amazon entering the market
  • Backlash from the opioid epidemic

The above factors have all impacted Cardinal Health’s stock price and/or business performance.
