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).

Like Warren in his younger years, I'm getting personal with this one. Didn't like the way they treated a family member's legit slip and fall incident in a WalMart store. There lawyers are bullies and they are the opposite of conscious capitalism.

Who can argue with more products at a lower price. I also believe the lack of customer service cuts down of overhead costs.

Economies of scale. Just go into any local Walmart and look at how many shoppers they have.

Walmart revolutionized distribution and retailing and put the likes of kmart, Woolworth, and countless others out of business; so to shall Amazon revolutionize how consumers get stuff and render wal marts distribution system and superstores obsolete. brick and morter mass retail will lose in the long run.

The sharp drop of WalMart on disappointing grocery store sales creates an attractive near-term buying opportunity for aggressive long-term <3 to 5 years> investors. WalMart is a BUY on this weakness.

WMT didn't have the data breach that hurt Target, it's main competition.

Above average growth is difficult to come by if you are as big as Wal-Mart. They will underperform the S&P500.

Undervalued vs. peers. This should be corrected over the next 6 months with the price going over $100.

The market goes down and comes back with a vengeance. Interest rates are so low forcing people into the market. to get anything better then the banks will give.

I meet up with my neighbors at Wal Mart. This is a safe buy and hold stock. It's gone up steadily every year.

Changing My Caps to Reflect my investing strategy. I start with a simple screener trying to find undervalued dividend paying stocks. Then because I want to invest in things I understand I eliminate any businesses I have not heard of or in areas I lack knowledge ( Financials, Precious Metals). After that I check the Caps Rating and it gets a thumbs up if it is rated 4 stars or higher. Very few 3 star companies will get a thumbs up but occasionally i will go out on a limb with one.

despite offending my pink streak from time to time, i think guys are pretty smart, and often find innovative ways to improve their operations.

Wal*Mart is toast. Every one I've visited has a max of a few working registers and plenty of empty ones. Empty shelves, not because of sales but because of lack of staff. Striking workers because of poor conditions. http://qik.com/video/59690745

I think the signs are finally here. The era of the mass-merchant, mega retail store is over. The current generation of shoppers grew up on the Internet, making AMZN the go-to place for anything-and-everything discount shopping. But even more than that, today's customers knows what he/she wants, knows what price he/she would like to play, and knows where to get it -- and more and more, that's going online, or to selective, niche stores that cater to a customer's particular product needs (i.e. customization) and desire for good customer service. Wal-Mart just doesn't fit that model.
