By: Benjamin_Shepherd

In August, Apple’s (NSDQ: AAPL) Board of Directors shared the company’s enormous wealth with investors, paying a dividend of $2.65 per share, its first such payment in 17 years. Owners of Technology Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: XLK), will be getting their cut.

When the dividend was paid on August 13, more than 20 percent of the fund’s assets were allocated to Apple. As a result, Technology Select Sector SPDR received a payout of $8.4 million that will ultimately be distributed to shareholders.

Taxmageddon 2013 Hits Dividend Income Hard – Here's What to Do / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: Every dividend investor loves the arrival of those quarterly distribution checks. But thanks to "Taxmageddon 2013" those checks could get a whole lot smaller.

As things currently stand - with higher tax brackets, no extension of the Bush-era tax cuts and the addition of new levies on higher-income payers to fund Obamacare - the tax bite on some dividend payments could rise from as little as 15% to as high as 43.4%.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Martin Hutchinson writes: I want to let you in on a little secret: You really can enjoy the best of both worlds.

With a little bit of digging, you can uncover companies that not only offer growth but pay good dividends as well.

Now admittedly, there has always been something of a perceived conflict between the two.

You Can't Beat the Juicy Dividend Yields Offered By These Global Giants / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Dividend investors have something of a problem if they'd like to invest internationally: there are actually very few foreign companies that pay really juicy dividends.

What's more, few of those have fully listed ADRs, so their shares can be very thinly traded.

That leaves income investors in a bit of a quandary since that's where the majority of the growth is found.

"Plenty, actually," I told him.

Dividend Paying Growth Stocks Can Provide Retirees Great Total Returns / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen people talk about dividend paying stocks, their focus is often on the dividend income they provide. This is especially true for the investors that fancy themselves purists as dividend growth investors, who seemingly care more about their dividends than they do their capital. However, this article intends to illustrate that dividend growth stocks are not only great income vehicles for retirees; they can also be terrific vehicles for providing total return.

However, to understand this fully you must first consider that dividend paying common stocks come in all sizes, shapes and flavors. Therefore, some are better for current yield, some are better for a growing income stream and others offer the total package of growth and income. Furthermore, there are many nuances and degrees of growth and/or income that various classes of dividend paying stocks possess.  In other words, you can’t paint all dividend growth stocks with the same general brush.

Dividends Provide An Stock Investors Return Bonus / InvestorEducation / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith all things being equal, dividend paying common stocks provide their shareholders a return bonus, or what some might like to call a kicker, over an equivalent common stock that pays no dividend. Many investors do not see it this way, as they tend to think of the dividend providing them their return.  However, the stock market capitalizes earnings whether a company pays a dividend or not.  Moreover, we contend that the market will value a given company’s earnings based on their past and future prospects for growth, again, regardless of whether a dividend is paid or not.

Share Buybacks are Dangerous for Your Dividend Stocks / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Many investment advisers like to recommend stocks with large buyback programs. A buyback, they argue, is like some sort of magical panacea.

It allows companies to invest in themselves which pushes the share price higher.

On the face of it, the premise seems logical enough. But the reality is that it's not quite that simple.

Stocks to Avoid At All Costs, Don't Fall For High Dividend Yield Traps / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Buying stocks with high dividend yields is an excellent way to invest. But it's not fool-proof.

In fact, if you shop by yield and yield alone, you're playing a dangerous game. It's called picking up nickels in front of a steamroller.

How to Boost Your Income in a World Where a Six Figure Salary No Longer Cuts It / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: It may sound impressive, but a $100,000 salary isn't all it's cracked up to be. What would have cost you $100,000 in 1976 would cost you a whopping $380,000 today.

And that's just adjusting for inflation...

In fact, to get the same benefit from a "six-figure salary" that you would've earned in yesteryear, you'd need to make about $250,000 today.

Six Dividend Stocks to Hold Forever / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Investor. Now there's a word you don't hear much these days. "Buy and hold," they tell us, has gone the way of the dinosaur.

Today, it's all about the fast money. In the market, out of the market... this stock, that stock...

Of course, that's perfectly fine for traders. The good ones earn small fortunes that way. But for folks who don't have that kind of experience, being nimble is simply an invitation to be whipsawed by the markets.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Successful investing is a bit like connecting the dots. Put enough of them together and they begin to form a picture.

Unfortunately, today's dots are pointing towards a recession.

With first-quarter GDP growth under 2% and a whole host of indicators moving in the wrong direction, it looks as though the U.S. economy has stalled.

Five Dividend Paying Tech Stocks for Investing 2012 / Companies / Dividends

By: Fast_Graphs

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere are five technology-oriented companies that are currently trading at a price earnings ratio that implies that the stocks are attractively valued. Each of these five companies currently offers a dividend yield that is above-average as represented by the S&P 500.

The following table summarizes five technology-oriented companies that appear to be attractively valued, and lists them in order of dividend yield highest to lowest. From left to right, the table shows the company's stock symbol and name. Next the company's historical EPS growth followed by the estimated EPS growth.

Blue-chip Dividend Growth Stocks Today’s Strong Option for Retirement Portfolios Part 2 / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn part one of this two-part series (Found Here) I laid the groundwork for why I believe that blue-chip dividend paying US equities represent not only a viable, but also a safer investment choice than many give them credit for. I also pointed out why I believe the risk profile on bonds is currently upside down, arguing that for one of the few times in history they may actually be more dangerous an investment than equities.

This is not normal, and therefore, I believe requires looking at investment choices differently than we traditionally have. I once read a comment from the renowned spiritual leader Dr. Wayne Dyer that summarizes my point quite nicely: "when you change the way you look at things the things you look at change." In today's investment environment I think we need to change the way we look at bonds and simultaneously change the way we look at equities. At least temporarily regarding bonds, until interest rates normalize, which I believe they eventually will. But perhaps we should change the way we look at equities more permanently.

Blue-Chip Dividend Growth Stocks Are Today’s Strong Option For Retirement Portfolios / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a confluence of factors that are painting a very odd picture of current investor behavior.  Common sense and a careful analysis of the market dynamics between equities and bonds today would indicate that investors should be acting in the exact opposite manner than they are. Interest rates are hovering at a 100-year low, which creates two problems for investors.  First, there is not enough return from bonds to fund a retiree’s income needs or to fight inflation. Second, investing in bonds with interest rates so low makes it riskier to own bonds today than it has been in over a century.

The Dividend Aristocrats Found The Lost Decade / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are many people who continue to hold a jaundiced view of stocks because they were traumatized by the last two recessions. Precipitous drops in equity prices drove them to distrust stocks and stock markets. However, I believe that most of the negative sentiment is a function of what I would describe as vague ideas about what really happened. A lot has to do with many investors failing to recognize, or make the important distinctions, that were the true causes of our last two market crashes.
