9 Dividend Stocks Providing An Inflation Hedge With Increased Dividends

August 26, 2013 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: EAT , WSBC , HCC

Investing in dividend growth stocks is not about buying a current high yield, but instead building a high yield-on-cost over time. One of the criticisms I am hearing more often is, "That low yield isn't even covering inflation." This is a very valid concern, if true. The way low many low yielding stocks yields compensate for inflation is by growing their dividend well in excess of the inflation rate.  [more]

6 Stocks Meeting The Goal Of Higher Dividends

August 19, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: WY , CTWS , CNK

I have stated many times that my goal is to create an ever growing income stream from dividend growth stocks. Secondarily, it is my desire to beat the S&P 500 over time. With that said, I rarely look at the capital performance of individual stocks. What I do watch is the ability of the stocks I own to sustain their dividend growth.  [more]

9 Dividend Stocks Beating The 4% Rule

August 14, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: DRI , SO , WPC

Over time the 4% rule has been criticized for leaving too much money on the table and in some cases retirees could outlive their money. For those not familiar with the 4% rule, William P. Bengen in 1994 published a study concluding that if retirees withdrew 4% (the 4% rule) of their nest egg in the first year, and then increased the dollar amount by the inflation rate every year, their savings would easily last 30 years.  [more]

7 Stocks Paying More Cash With Higher Dividends

August 12, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: LEG , ITW , SMG

Payback is the amount of time needed for an investment to earn its cost, undiscounted. Though not very sophisticated, payback can still help you screen for good, solid dividend growth stocks. Once you earn back your investment, some might say you are in a no-lose situation. I wouldn’t go quite that far, but you have found an investment that has provided you a good historical revenue stream, and hopefully it will continue to do so in the future.  [more]

How To Buy Dividend Stocks At The Bottom

August 07, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: KO , MMM , WMT

Everyone loves a deal and loves getting something at a rock bottom price. Dividend investors are no different. However, as long-term buy-and-hold investors, we aren't known for our ability (or desire) to time the market and call the bottom. That's not to say we can't enjoy the benefits of buying at the bottom. So, how does a long-term buy-and-hold investor accomplish this?  [more]
