12 Dividend Stocks Growing Their Yield

January 21, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: WMB , BLK , OKE

In the southern U.S. where I live, there has been some controversy over harvesting forests of hardwoods and reseeding them with pines. Growing hardwoods is very similar to investing in dividend stocks. What you plant or invest in today will not yield much for years to come. That is not to say progress is not seen. It is just slow and deliberate. To grow hardwoods it takes great foresight and commitment to the process. The small investments we make in quality dividend stocks each month won’t yield large payments in the near-term. It will take time for the payments to grow and compound, but they will.  [more]

To find these jewels in the rough, there are two very important things the investor must look for.  [more]

Is The Fiscal Cliff Bill Good For Dividend Stocks?

January 07, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SSS

Thursday, the President signed the Fiscal Cliff Bill into law. So will that be good for dividend stocks? The short answer is probably "yes", if you define good as an increase in share price. However, if you were hoping for a steep decline (a.k.a. a buying opportunity) you may have to wait a little longer. Politicians are still in Washington, so the decline may still come as they work through the spending side.  [more]
