13 Dividend Stocks Raising Their Payouts And Yields

May 25, 2010 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: ACE , CLX , CP

In a down-market when many people are rushing to buy gold, I take comfort that I already have mine. No, not that kind, but something much better! A growing stream of dividend income from solid companies. While everyone else is panicked about their portfolio’s decline, I see a downturn as an incredible buying opportunity. Lower prices, rising yields and growing dividends, its hard to beat that combination.  [more]

May 24, 2010 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ADP , PEP , IBM

Did May 6th frighten or excite you? I received a few emails from frightened dividend investors letting me know they were getting out of the market, while others asked if this was the beginning of another significant downturn. The first group are destined to always lose money in the market (sell low/buy high) and my answer to the second group was,  ‘I hope so!’ Let me explain.  [more]

May 18, 2010 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CPICQ , KEI.DL , TKR

It is very easy for a CEO to get on a conference call and talk about confidence in the future while communicating glowing projections, but do they really believe what they are saying? Are there any actions that would make you believe what they are saying? Senior management purchasing company stock is a strong indicator of confidence in the future. Another indicator is sticking with a dividend plan, including regular increases.  [more]

The Secret To Finding The Best Dividend Stocks

May 17, 2010 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: JNJ , KO , MCD

Is a stock with a 3% yield and a 9% dividend growth rate better than one with a 7% yield and a 1.5% dividend growth rate? Last week we looked at yield-on-cost (YOC) and how it can be used to track the progress of a growing dividend of an individual stock. However, it is not a good metric for comparing multiple dividend stocks with each another. For this I devised a metric I call NPV MMA Differential.   [more]

There are income investors and Dividend Growth investors. While the distinction is rather simple, it slips past many casual observers.

How Often Should A Stock Pay And Raise Dividends?

May 04, 2010 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MCD , PG , JNJ

In the U.S. and Canada, most companies pay dividends quarterly. In other parts of the world, it is not uncommon for companies to pay an annual or a semi-annual dividend. That is not to say that North American companies sometimes choose not to pay quarterly dividends. For many years McDonald’s (MCD) paid an annual dividend. Since 2000, Walt Disney Co. (DIS) has paid an annual dividend and Ruby Tuesday, Inc. (RT) pays a semi-annual dividend. Going in the other direction, Realty Income Corp. (O) and Alpine Total Dynamic Dividend Fund (AOD) pay monthly dividends.  [more]
