9 Dividend Stocks With A 10%+ Dividend Growth Rate

September 30, 2015 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: TGT , PSX , LMT

The difference between an income investor and a dividend growth investor is time and the understanding of how compound growth works. If you are 67 years old and need income today, you will likely select a different group of stocks than an enlightened 27 year old that doesn't necessarily need the income today. The 27 year old has the luxury of time to grow a superior yield, while the 67 year old may be forced to assume additional risk to buy a higher current yield. Continue Reading »   [more]

How to Find Dividend Investing Opportunities Using Trend Following Strategies

September 25, 2015 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: AIZ , BRC , RCL

As a dividend investor, I used to buy dividend stocks with very little consideration of price.  The thinking was that a good dividend growth stock was always going to rise in price over the long term.

Overall that may be true, but given the recent turmoil in the markets as well as considering what we went through in 2008 I started to give that more thought.  I saw weaker holding really get slammed in price. With that learning in place, I started to ask if I should be buying dividend stocks without any consideration of price?

Over time I determined that there was a better way for me to judge which dividend stocks to get into. The method I now use is a trend following system.  In this article, I will explain that process in detail... Continue Reading »  [more]

5 Stocks Building Future Yield With Higher Dividends

September 21, 2015 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MSFT , LGF-A , BXMT

As a young investor I followed an aggressive growth strategy. Having narrowly missed the tech bubble bursting, I purchased my first dividend stock on December 11, 2003. I had heard dividend investments were supposed to be safer, but knew very little else about the strategy. I was fortunate enough to accidentally buy enough good dividend stocks learn the “secret” of dividend investing. It is not necessarily starting with a high-yield investment, but ending up with a high-yield investment. This usually occurs by buying stocks with a moderate yield and a long history of growing dividends and letting time do its job. Continue Reading »  [more]
