How to Spot Dangerous High Yield Dividend Stocks / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Martin Hutchinson writes: When I'm investing, I like to have a good idea of the economic value produced by the companies I invest in.

Not because I'm a great fan of "social investing" -- I'll happily buy tobacco company shares if the yield's good enough and the consumption trend is solid -- but because there are a lot of dangerous stocks out there that are simply tricks of the market.

Reasons Why Dividend Stocks Have Room to Run / Companies / Dividends

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Whitefoot writes: Thanks to artificially low interest rates, the Federal Reserve has taken the “income” out of “fixed income,” and made saving for retirement that much harder for the average American.

Back in the 1980s, the interest rate on a 10-year Treasury was above 15%. Investors planning for retirement could rely on their fixed incomes providing them with solid, reliable profits; they knew what their annual returns would be, and could budget and spend accordingly.

By: Money_Morning

Diane Alter writes: It's only April, but it appears dividend payouts this year will soar past 2012's tally - meaning all investors need to know how to find the best dividend stocks or risk missing out on record-high yield.

Barron's reports that in Q1, 944 of approximately 10,000 U.S. companies boosted payouts, either by increases, extras or resumption. That was up a hefty 39.4% from 677 companies a year ago.

The Truth About The Impact Of Stocks Dividend Reinvesting / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

There is a growing trend towards doing-it-yourself (DIY) portfolio management. Many individual investors have become disillusioned with professional investment management at various levels, to include mutual funds as well as custom-designed professionally-managed portfolios. Consequently, they have become motivated to take their financial futures into their own hands and manage their own portfolios.

Steve Sjuggerud writes: Every long-term investor knows dividends matter.

Since 1900, the average annual gain on the S&P 500 has been 5%. But by simply reinvesting your dividends, you nearly double that number to 9.4%.

When the editor explained that biotechnology would be one of my "beats" ... well, I jumped at the chance.

7 Dividend Stocks with 50+ Year History of Increasing Payouts / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

As Money Morning Executive Editor Steve Christ told us this week, finding solid dividend stocks in different sectors is a key to finding financial freedom, thanks to compounding.

"This compounding effect arises when your dividend yield is added to the principal. From that moment on, the interest begins to earn interest on itself," explained Christ. "Over the long haul, that process can add up to a small fortune - even with very modest investments. All it takes is time."

Investing in Dividend Aristocrats, Where Have All The Bargain Stocks Gone? / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

By now, it should be no secret to anyone that the stock market has been on a nice run of late. Moreover, this Bull Run has conjured up a lot of discussions that might lead one to believe that stocks in general are overvalued.  There are even some that want to play the bubble card because they argue that the S&P 500 and/or the Dow Jones Industrial Average are both approaching all-time highs. However, I believe these extremists are confusing value with price.

Investors need to understand and recognize that both a company and/or an index can be trading at an all-time high price, while at the same time be trading at a reasonable or even a low valuation.  Additionally, there can be more than one reason for this to occur. For example, if earnings are at an all-time high, the price can also be at an all-time high while the PE ratio is lower than historical norms. Another iteration can manifest because the stock or index was once previously trading at an extreme overvaluation, while it is now fairly valued.

Dividends, A Hidden Source of Double-Digit Annual Returns / Companies / Dividends

By: DailyWealth

Dan Ferris writes: If you're looking to earn 10% or more on your portfolio year after year, chances are, you're looking in the wrong place...

Chances are, you're buying risky, overpriced, "high growth" stocks that have a good story. Or you're buying risky, leveraged, "high income" stocks. Either way, over the long term, you're more likely to lose money than make it.

Attractively Valued Blue-Chip Dividend Stocks For Retirement Portfolios / Portfolio / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

In a previous article found here I postulated that the S&P 500 was currently fairly valued.  In this article, I review a specific hand-selected list of Dividend Champions that I believe are reasonably priced and therefore capable of generating above-average returns at below-average risk.  In today’s low interest rate environment, I believe that high-quality blue-chip dividend growth stocks represent an attractive asset class that can provide a retirement portfolio with a growing income stream.

The 12 Rules to Follow for Buying Dividend Stocks / InvestorEducation / Dividends

By: Don_Miller

Many of you have probably filled out one of the "retirement planner" forms available online. Plenty of tax and accounting programs also have "Lifetime Planner" sections for folks to determine if they can afford to retire.

These sorts of programs plug certain assumptions into a formula, such as projected inflation rate, retirement income, anticipated spending levels, and portfolio growth rate. After you add your personal information, it projects how much money you'll be able to produce annually during retirement, and how long it will last.

How Dividend Paying Companies Are Helping Ahead of the Fiscal Cliff / Companies / Dividends

George Leong writes: The fiscal cliff is currently dictating the trading action in the equities market as we near December and the year-end. With 28 days left until the Bush-era tax cuts are allowed to dissipate, there is widespread fear and concern of a significant jump in taxes, including those on dividends, especially for those who invest heavily in dividend paying stocks.

The Unbridled Truth About Dividends Contribution to Shareholder Profitability / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

The Two Components of Total Return

There have been many recent published articles and discussions that indicate that dividends have become the Rodney Dangerfield of the investing world.  In short, dividends get no respect, as many believe that dividends do not add to a shareholder’s profitability.  We believe that dividends represent a return bonus.  This article is written to provide evidence of our thesis.

Since the end of September to mid-November, 59 companies in the Russell 3000 stock index announced a one-time special dividend, up from about 15 in the same period last year.

International Dividend Stock Plays to Hedge Against a Weak U.S. Dollar / Companies / Dividends

By: Roger_Conrad

Politics and investing rarely mix well. That’s worth keeping in mind as election-year rhetoric heats up this month. But no matter who wins the White House and Congress in November, investors should have money beyond the dollar.

Foreign-based power, pipeline, communications and water companies are the ideal vehicles. Not only do you benefit from countries growing faster than the US. They also pay dividends and are priced in currencies other than the US dollar, so the buck’s loss is US investors’ gain.
