May 30, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MSFT , INTC , HRS

When you hear the names Cisco (CSCO), Oracle (ORCL), Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT) and Intel (INTC), "dividend stocks" is probably not the first thought to enter your mind. It wasn't that long ago that tech companies simply didn't pay dividends. Every penny earned was plowed back into the business. The entire focus was on growth, and investors were looking for capital gains.  [more]

Heinz Increases Dividend 7.3%, And These 5 Other Stocks Raised Dividends

May 28, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: HNZ.DL , CATO , VIA

Every investor wants to earn more. It is how we define "more" and how we go about earning it that defines the type of investor we are. Income investors want more income. Yield is a significant determinate of income. Instead of buying a current high-yield stock, investors in dividend growth stocks prefer to build their own. Granted, the current yield may never be classified as high-yield, but over time the yield-on-cost can reach epic heights.  [more]

May 24, 2012 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: BAC , GE , PFE

One important lesson we learned from the 2008-2009 financial crisis was that it didn't matter how long a company had increased its dividend, tough economic times could push it to cut its dividend. In most cases the companies' investors were not surprised because they saw the early warning signs that indicated a dividend cut was imminent. Here are three signs that a company is heading toward a dividend cut:

7 Higher-Yielding Consumer Stocks To Build Your Yield

May 16, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: GIS , PEP , PG

An investment strategy based on Dividend Growth Stocks focuses on companies that produce predictable results and thus are able to consistently raise their dividends. Demand for household and personal care products is generally stable and not affected by changes in the economy or other factors. If you lose your job, you probably won’t stop bathing, washing your clothes, brushing your teeth or stop buying toilet paper. That's why companies in the Consumer Defensive sector are sought after as desirable dividend growth investments.  [more]

9 Stocks Compounding Income With Higher Dividends

May 14, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: INTC , COST , CSX

When evaluating a company as a potential income investment I look at its calculated fair value, ability to generate cash, debt position and the net present value of its dividend stream compared to alternative “safe” investments. The advantages dividend stocks have over "safe" investments are potential capital appreciation and dividend growth. Not only are your earnings compounding, but the rate of earnings is growing.  [more]

High-Yield Investments To Increase Income While Waiting On Dividend Growth

May 09, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MCD , KO , MMM

We have all heard it... Stodgy, for old people, yawn, boring! These have all been used to describe investing in dividend growth stocks. Nevertheless, I am a firm believer in dividend growth stocks for building a bullet-proof retirement portfolio. Study after study has shown that most of the historical stock market returns have come from reinvested dividends.   [more]

In addition to death and taxes, we can add one more sure thing: Until death, our bodies will continue to age and need more attention. As I am approaching 50 this is becoming more of a reality to me. I take little comfort in knowing that there are millions of other people in the same situation. However, from an investing standpoint, it does provide an opportunity.  [more]
