The Entertainment Industry as a whole is something to watch. We all know the battle that Disney and Time Warner are going to have (if you don't do some research into comic books) but what about Michael Bay promising more Transformers movies? How about more Star Trek movies? TNMNT and Transformers might not be a critic's first choice for two thumbs up; but the fans sure liked them. This isn't so much for trading. Buy and hold for a year and see where it goes.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

Viacom is a very profitable, consistently growing, wide moat company selling around 12x free cash flow. They’ve bought back shares at a compounded annual rate of 5% per yr for the past six years AND sport a 2% dividend. That’s a very shareholder friendly company. They have wonderful brands in Comedy Central (South Park thru 1016, Jon Stewart thru 2015, Colbert thru 2014), Nickelodeon (Spongebob, etc), and MTV, which always seems to be coming up with new highly controversial, (and profitable), programs that kids love to watch and their parents don't approve of.

Redstone is buying out his daughter's 20% interest. Either there is a TO or private equity LBO play coming, or he is about to make another media industry play himself.

Look for this company to rebound from recent losses. As people stay home due to energy pricing, entertainment will become king. This company has great earnings and has surprised on the upside twice recently. Look for that to continue going forward.

I have chosen Disney to do well. If Disney does well, chances are that Viacom will too, since they target the same audience. MTV recently did some house cleaning, which is a good sign of freshness.

What's not to like about MTV, Comedy Central, DreamWorks and Sponge-fuckin'-bob!? Plus, Redstone is smart & impatient people. This is ready to jump off the couch, folks!
