11 Dividend Stocks Delivering A Quick Payback

March 07, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: COP , NUE , AVA

Payback is the amount of time needed for an investment to earn its cost, undiscounted. Years ago as a young analyst, I was assigned the project of streamlining my employers' acquisition model. As part of this project, I removed the payback calculation. The company's focus was on discounted cash flow and internal rate of return, so I didn't see the need for a payback metric. No one noticed the missing payback calculation, that is, no one except the CEO.  [more]

Have you ever noticed those that most vehemently attack a buy-and-hold strategy really don’t understand how the strategy works? They confuse a buy-and-hold strategy with day-trading with a longer duration. A true implementation of buy-and-hold includes a focus on blue-chip stocks with a sustainable advantage, along with a reasonable asset allocation framework. One sign of a blue-chip stock is a long string of dividend increases.  [more]
