On top of this, Vail has become a surprisingly solid dividend payer as well. After initiating a $0.15-per-share quarterly dividend in 2011, it has raised it to $0.623 per share currently. This level amounts to a yield, even after the recent great performance of the stock, of around 2%. With a market cap around $4.5 billion, this company still has a long growth runway ahead of it. Its strong moats should protect its cash flow, and I expect consistent dividend increases for years to come.
