As well as offering potential profits through the stock’s increase in value, investors might also be interested to know that MCBC, or stock in Macatawa Bank Corporation, pays dividends. It’s known as an ‘income stock’ for this reason, because of the regular payments investors will receive. Its dividend yield is 2.39%, which analysts are describing as ‘Average’ - however, while it’s not one of the higher dividend yields available, it would mean that based on the last 12 months if you invested $1000, you would be paid $23.90 a year in dividends. It could be a good addition to a broader portfolio.

Also, MCBC has a projected DPS of $0.36, which indicates that analysts think the company may increase its dividend per share slightly in the future.
