with all due respect I see very little to get excited about here. I am no expert on the companies, but given the info you provided I see nothing to write home about.

My issues:

- None of them are likely to produce a safe, solid 7-10% CAGR gain over the next decade, which is essential for any good dividend stock; buying it otherwise is pointless

- None of the dividends, save MO (who isn't going to grow), has a dividend north of 6%, which is the cutoff line for any yield based investor

- There is no information on the growth rate of the yields. I am not going to do the digging to find out what it is (you ought to provide it) but I find it hard to believe that most of those companies could keep up 10%+ CAGR growth over the next decade (which they would have to do to be underpriced at their current yield)

- Some of the payout ratios (which should be in % BTW) are over 100%. Unless this is an accounting gimmick and they really do have cash flow to sustainably meet this dividend, and raise it by the above figure (in which case you would have done well to note it) I see no reason why I should touch those companies with a 10' pole, much less (a much shorter) dollar bill. 


There is alot of ciriticism here, but hopefully you can take it as constructive and improve your blogs.
