Best Heal Care Stocks To Own For 2021

Dave & Buster’s Entertainment (NASDAQ:PLAY)is finally yielding to temptation. The rapidly expanding chain of 117 units combining casual dining, sports bars, and high-tech video arcade gaming initiated a dividend policy on Friday. Dave & Buster’s will treat investors to a quarterly payout of $0.15 a share.

The move translates to a yield just south of 1% with the stock crossing $60 to hit new 52-week highs after posting well-received financial results late last week. The new distributions aren’t going to sway hardcore investors feasting on the fat yields of REITs, utilities, and preferred stock. However, with the stock now up a scintillating 64% since its springtime bottom, the new quarterly dividend is icing on the capital appreciation cake.
