What’s more, Staples just raised that payout another 9% back in March, which at the time represented a yield of almost 4%, rewarding shareholders irrespective of share-price gains. With the company poised to deliver greater earnings in the years to come, Staples should maintain an even greater capacity to boost its dividend.

Delivering the best products
Finally, Staples has done a good job of bringing interesting products to its stores. Last month, the company said that it would become the first major U.S. retailer to stock 3-D printers, and it has also done a good job of making sure it carries major mobile devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4. By giving customers a reason to come into its stores, Staples does its best to keep its business healthy and new.

If you’re looking at buying Staples, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLS) stock, seeing it hit new 52-week highs might convince you that you’re too late to earn big profits. But as long as the company steers itself toward more profitable business and takes advantage of its competitive advantages, then Staples has the potential to keep delivering share-price gains for a long time to come.
