13 Stocks Giving Their Shareholders More Cash With Higher Dividends

March 28, 2016 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: O , RTN , WPC

Dividend stocks are sometimes referred to as defensive stocks since many investors flee to them in an economic downturn. Their dividends, if sustainable, provide a minimum level of positive return. This cushions the downward pressure from the market. Better yet, great dividend companies not only sustain their dividends in a downturn - they actually raise them.

Below are several stocks displaying confidence in the future by increasing their cash dividends: Continue Reading »  [more]

7 Stocks Growing Shareholder Expectations And Cash Dividends

March 14, 2016 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CL , AMT , DG

Dividend growth investing in its classic form focuses on identifying solid companies with a long record of growing their dividends each year; and an expectation that they will continue to do so into the future. The focus is not solely on yield but a combination of yield and dividend growth. Often it is the lower yield, higher growth, security that will provide the best return over time.

Here are several stocks living up to shareholders' dividend growth expectations by raising their cash dividends... Continue Reading »  [more]

Once again it is time for a goals/progress update. I am pleased to report that annualized dividend income increased in January, extending the streak to 41 consecutive months of increases.

11 Confident and Secure Companies Boosting Dividends

March 07, 2016 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: AVGO , BNS , DF

Are you confident and secure in your investing process? It appears many people are not, including friends, family and acquaintances who jump in and out of the market. I believe that most investors will lose money in the stock market over their lifetime.

It is not that the market is a bad place to invest your money, but left unchecked the psychology of the market will lead you to do just the opposite of what you should to be doing. We must follow a process we are 100% confident in. Doubt is the gateway to destructive behavior. For me, dividend growth investing is what I am confident and secure in.

Below are several companies confident and secure enough in their business to increase their cash dividends... Continue Reading »  [more]

Why We Are Dividend Growth Investors

March 02, 2016 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: AWR , PH , MMM

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 as evidenced by the numerous comments on capital appreciation - "Why would you buy that stock? It has been flat for 2 years."

Most understand the high yield investors mentality as noted by comments like - "Why would you buy that stock when you can buy Amalgamated Risk and it pays a 12% dividend?" Both of these strategies can be successful, as can a dividend growth strategy. Periodically, it is good to remind ourselves why we are dividend growth investors. Continue Reading »   [more]
