April 30, 2018 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: IBM , XOM , JNJ

Not to worry, the good companies routinely raise their dividends well in excess of the inflation rate.

This week as the weather turns cold the dividend increases heat up. Below are several companies heating up their yields with increased cash dividends:

April 25, 2018 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: JNJ , MMM , GPC

In everything we do, we always want to be the best or be associated with the best. You never hear fans yelling, 'We're number 2, we're number 2', while holding two fingers in the air. The same is true when selecting dividend growth stocks.

April 18, 2018 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: T , MDP

Before the internet and even before computers, critical financial information was printed daily in newspapers. Though many newspapers still print this information, most people find it easier (and faster) to get information on their stocks from financial websites.

How much money will you need before retiring? This obviously is very important question, but also a very difficult question to answer.

April 09, 2018 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CSCO , HPE , TJX

In one form or another, I get the this question, “What do you think of the market? Where’s it headed?” Normally, I politely respond as expected, but occasionally I will startle the person with a reply like, “I don’t know.

Instead of looking at the market and its direction, investors in dividend growth stocks should focus on quality, price and ultimate value of individual stocks.

In the southern U.S. where I live, there has been some controversy over harvesting forests of hardwoods and reseeding them with pines. Valuable hardwood trees such as white and red oaks, cherry, ash, yellow poplar and black walnut require decades to reach financial maturity.
