6 Stocks Increasing Shareholder Wealth With Higher Dividends

May 27, 2014 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: FLO , JPM , AWR

Dividend growth investing is a long-term strategy. A growing dividend is a sign that the company is becoming more valuable. Companies that consistently increase dividends tend to have steadily rising share prices and the best way to benefit from this is to buy and hold the stocks. Diversification and a focus on blue-chip stocks provides insurance for the few companies that don't pan out.  [more]

12 Dividend Stocks With 50+ Years of Consecutive Increases

May 20, 2014 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CL , MMM , EMR

Commitment is a word often thrown around, but rarely backed up with actions. Salesmen are committed to your needs until you sign on the dotted line - then they are committed to next unsigned contract. A true measure of character is how committed are you to doing right when the times are hard and you are tempted to go astray? This same test can be applied to companies that pay and increase their dividends.  [more]

May 19, 2014 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: M , CLX , SWY

The goals of an income portfolio are much different than those of a capital appreciation portfolio. The good news is an income portfolio consisting of quality dividend growth stocks can not only succeed, but excel during a market downturn. Dividend investors are focused on building a stream of steadily rising income from solid companies. While many panic when their portfolios decline, income investors see a downturn as an incredible buying opportunity as they are look for sustainable growing dividends.  [more]

It's human nature for new income investors to focus on yield. Many eventually learn that above average yields often carry an above average risk of a dividend cut, loss of invested capital or both.

In much the same way those investing in dividend stocks, can do certain things to increase their chance of success. One method is to focus on stocks the consistently increase their dividends.  [more]

10 Stocks Raising Dividends and Expectations

May 05, 2014 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: XOM , CVX , CBRL

I am not smart enough to time the daily gyrations of the stock market. When stock prices start dropping, our primal instinct of flight kicks in and we want to sell. In many cases that is the time to be buying.  [more]
