March 28, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CSCO , JPM , RTN

We have all heard it… Stodgy, for old people, yawn, boring! These have all been used to describe dividend growth investing. As a dividend growth investor, I sometimes think our strategy is the most misunderstood. It seems everyone understands a traders mentality and a high-yield mentality. Periodically, it is good to remind ourselves that dividend growth provides us with excellent long-term leverage.

Below are several stocks using real cash to raise their dividends:  [more]

3 Dividend Stocks That I Will NEVER Lose Money On

March 22, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: EMR , KO , MMM

Wouldn’t it be nice to buy stocks that only had upside. While we are wishing why don’t we add in predictable earnings, predictable dividends and, of coarse, we don’t want to pay a premium for this investment. Does this sound unrealistic? Possibly, at face value, but there is a way to accomplish this. It won’t happen overnight, but it can be done. Here is how I have been able to do it…Start With Quality Stocks

Just as ‘better ingredients make a better pizza’, higher quality stocks provide more predictable dividends and an increased chance of becoming one of these Golden Stocks. As with any income investment, I look for stocks that have consistently increased their dividends for many consecutive years and operate in businesses that do well over all parts of the economic cycle.  [more]

12 Confident and Secure Companies Boosting Dividends

March 21, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: APD , HPP , O

If income investing were as simple as picking the stock with the highest yield, everyone would be an expert. Most assume (rightfully so) that yield is heavily influenced by risk, but much more goes into determining yield. The industry the company operates in, legal considerations (REITs and MLPs), maturity and growth potential all have an effect on an individual stock’s yield, along with the company’s ability to grow its dividend.

Below are several companies confident and secure enough in their business to increase their cash dividends:  [more]

March 16, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: KO , MCD , XOM

In 2009, I introduced the Stock Ideas list and it has proven to be immensely popular. The list consists of Dividend Aristocrats, US Broad Dividend Achievers and U.S. Dividend Champions. Duplications in the above lists are eliminated and stocks are crossed out when I learn that they have either cut their dividend or fail to raise it. Here is some information on each of the constituent lists and some highlights on this year’s changes:

Dividend Aristocrats: Companies in the S&P 500 that have followed a policy of consistently increasing dividends every year for at least 25 consecutive years. As the name denotes, these are the best of the best – the blue blood stocks, including names like:  [more]

These 11 Dividend Stocks Could Make You Wealthy

March 08, 2011 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: KO , MMM , PG

It seems the older I get the more I fight with my weight. I know how to lose weight – I have done it several times. The formula is not difficult, eat less and exercise more. My problem, like many others, is in the implementation. In much the same way, the formula to building wealth is rather simple – spend less than you earn and invest the difference. Once again implementation is where many people come up short. With the right focus and some positive feedback, building wealth can be much easier than shedding the spare tire around your mid-section. Here’s how to do it…Fad Diets and Fad Investing Plans Rarely Work

Forget about those ‘Make 534% On Every Trade’ ads that you see on many financial websites. Real wealth is built with sweat equity and a sound financial plan. The only people making money off fad investments are the people selling them. To understand what will and will not work in the future you must understand the concepts that have worked in the past. Granted, each success story is different, but there are common traits as Philip E. Humbert noted when he studied successful people and came up with the “Top 10 Traits of Highly Successful People.” Here are 3 traits that we can apply to our investments:  [more]

March 07, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: GD , WM , WMT

When you purchase individual stocks, risk is inherit. Sometimes bad things happen to good stocks. Eventually, every investor will hold a stock that falls out of favor and endures a double-digit decline. Understanding this from the onset makes it easier to deal with. To minimize the risk of significant declines, your core portfolio should focus on blue-chip dividend growth stocks.

Listed below are select companies that have recently elected to raise their payout and yield by increasing their cash dividends to shareholders:  [more]

A photograph captures a moment in time. Seconds after the flash dims a tree could have fallen on the object of the photo or the sad looking man in the photo could have been told he just won a million dollars. In much the same way a dividend stock analysis is a snapshot in time, but the real question for the savvy dividend investor is ‘where is the stock headed?’ Here are four important directional metrics that I look for when updating my stock database…  [more]
