Catamaran Corporation (TSX: CCT) is in the Health Care industry. A recent price was $58.28 and it has no dividends. It was formerly SXC Health Solutions Corp. and is a provider of pharmacy benefit management (PBM) services and healthcare information technology (HCIT) solutions to the healthcare benefit management industry. I am not interested in a company that pays no dividends.
Computer Modeling Group (TSX: CMG) is in the Software industry. A recent price was $11.85 with a dividend yield of 3.38%. It develops reservoir simulation software for oil and gas companies. This is a company I know and hold.
Computer Modelling Group Ltd. is a dividend growth company and dividend growth over the past 5 and 10 years is at 23% and 38% per year. The last dividend increase was for June 2014 and was a 5.3% increase.
Absolute Software Corporation (TSX: ABT) is in the Software industry. A recent price was $8.16 with a dividend yield of 3.43%. It is a provider of endpoint firmware-persistent security and management solutions for computing devices such as computers, tablets and smartphones.
Absolute Software just started paying dividends in 2013. They doubled the dividend for 2014 and for 2015 there is an increase in dividends of 20%. This is a company of the above I might be interested in.
Stella-Jones (TSX: SJ) is in the Wood Products industry. A recent price was $33.31 with a dividend yield of 0.84%. It is the leading manufacture of pressure treaded wood products in North America. This is a company I follow. It is one of the only two I know about on this list.
On Stella-Jones Inc. dividends have grown at 19% and 26% per year over the past 5 and 10 years. The last dividend increase was for 2014 and it was for 40%.

It is a producer and seller of natural gas and heavy crude oil. The Company also purchases crude oil from third parties to be used as diluents and for trading purposes.
Pacific Rubiales Energy Corp. just started to pay dividends with one quarterly dividend in 2010. Dividend growth over the past 3 years is at 21% per year. The last dividend increase was for 2014 and it was at 9.1%. I am not much interested in oil and gas stocks. They are very risky.
New Look Eyewear Inc. (TSX: BCI) is in the Health Care industry. A recent price was $21.90 with a dividend yield of 2.74%. It is a provider of eye care products and services in Eastern Canada.
New Look Eyewear Inc. is another old income trust company. Dividends declined by 58% in 2010 when it changed to a corporation. They increased the dividends back to the old 2009 level on 2011 and they have not changed since. There are 4 analysts following this stock, but none address dividends. As an income trust they did raise dividends. This stock might be interesting if they start to raise their dividends again.
Intrepid Mines Limited (AUX: IAU) is in the Metals and Mining industry. It is an Australia-based precious metals developer and explorer with operations in Indonesia. As far as I can see it is not currently listed on the TSX as it was dropped in July 2014. It is traded on the Australian exchange (ASX-IAU). The TSX delisted this company because the Company does not currently have a material mining asset in its portfolio.
Equity Financial Holdings Inc. (TSX: EQI) is in the Financial Services industry. A recent price was $9.35 and it has no dividends. It is a financial services company serving the corporate and institutional markets, and the retail mortgage market. I am not interested in a company that pays no dividends.
