Here are the 29 Best Dividend Stocks for 2012 – With a Complete Analysis!




I hope you had a great Holiday Season and that you are ready to rock 2012!


I’ve taken off 2 weeks in December but I didn’t put my blog on the side. In fact, instead of writing articles on The Dividend Guy Blog, I’ve done some intensive research to pull out the 29 Best Dividend Stocks for 2012 and make out a 34 pages eBook.


Next week, I’ll be sharing even more information about the Best 2012 Dividend Stocks through a series on both American and Canadian stocks. But today, I was too excited and I wanted to share with you the work I’ve done to help you having a successful 2012.


The eBook covers 20 US stocks and 9 Canadian stocks. Each stocks part of the Best 2012 Dividend Stocks eBook has been selected from a bigger list (out of 211 stocks!) including all stocks that shows the following metrics:


Dividend Yield over 3%

Dividend Payout Ratio under 75%

5 Years Dividend Growth positive


Then, I’ve tried to pick interesting stocks considering their strengths (low payout ratio, high growth or low dividend payout ratio) and their sector. I wanted to cover as many sectors as possible in order to give you a wide variety of picks that will fit your portfolio.


What are the Best 2012 Stocks?

You are curious, eh?

I’m new to dripping. As a Canadian I have been buying some south of the border large caps. I’m hearing rumblings that the dividend laws are changing soon, Can you direct some of us who may be struggling with this? should I sell all and move to Canadian stuff, buy Canadian exclusively, or just wait and see???
