6 Stocks Providing Positive Feedback With Higher Dividends

June 22, 2015 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: O , SWKS , USB

It seems that every investing article ends with the same conclusion - you should be buying dividend stocks. Beyond the simple concepts, some of the writers are making really bad recommendations and cross-breeding dividend investing with their preferred form of investing. Dividend growth investing is not about exit points, momentum swings, relative strength, sector rotation; instead it is about studying fundamentals, selecting superior stocks and building a portfolio with a long-term horizon. When we buy a dividend stock, we hope to hold it forever.

This week several companies provided their shareholders positive feedback with increased cash dividends:

5 Stocks Building Wealth With Dividend Increases

June 15, 2015 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: CAT , TGT , FDX

Have you ever wondered just where are all the get-rich-now infomercial millionaires? I know several people who have purchased one or more of these get-rich-now kits, but I don't know of anyone who actually got rich from purchasing the kit. Warren Buffett and Bill Gates didn't build their fortunes with a get-rich-now kit. They worked hard built it steadily over time.

In much the same way, a disciplined approach to investing, such as dividend growth stocks, can be highly effective. Though it may seem boring to many, I find it exciting to see my income growing as the finish line approaches.

Below are several companies building their shareholders' wealth with increased cash dividends:

5 Stocks Beating Inflation With Higher Dividends

June 01, 2015 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: HPQ , TIF , BMO

One of the criticisms I sometimes is, "That low yield isn't even covering inflation." This is a very valid concern, if true. The way many low yielding stocks yields compensate for inflation is by growing their dividend well in excess of the inflation rate.

Below are several companies building an inflation hedge for their shareholders by increasing their cash dividends:
