To succeed as a dividend investor, you must find companies that can sustain and grow dividends by focusing on their ability to generate cash. You can fake earnings, but you can’t fake cash.  [more]

5 Stocks Giving Their Shareholders A Raise With Higher Dividends

June 16, 2014 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: TGT , CAT , BBY

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.  [more]

4 Stocks Growing Their Cash Dividends

June 09, 2014 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: HP , UNH , CTT

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.

My 5 Largest Dividend Stock Positions Have Double-Digit Lifetime Returns

June 04, 2014 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: JNJ , MCD , GD

Over time stocks fall in and out of favor with the media, analysts and investors. It is too easy to fall in love with a stock only to have your heart, and brokerage account, broken. As an investor that takes a value approach to selecting the best dividend growth stocks, I tend to focus on fundamentals with a heavy dose of analysis.
