This week, I’ve created quite a discussion about tracking dividend income. I expected some reactions, but this time it was quite a feud. I just want to make sure you understand my point before you read this article: I’m not saying tracking dividend income on a monthly basis is useless; I’m just saying that having a long term vision is better. I’ll leave with you to read the article and tell me what you think!
I also had 2 stocks analysis wrote on the Dividend Monk:
Walmart (WMT) Trading at 10% discount
Polaris (PII) (guest post by Sure Dividend)
and another one on Seeking Alpha:
Then again, tonight is game 5 of the Habs Vs the Senators and this time, it’s going to be brutal. I predict a Habs win 4-1! Enjoy the game!
10 dividend yield stocks hold by Warren Buffet @ Dividend Yield. While we both hold KO, I think one of his best move was to finance General Electrics (GE) during the 2008 crisis (if I remember correctly, he made a hell of deal with this trade). He also holds General Motors (GM)… interesting enough that this impressive investors is taking some serious risk once in while…
Echo says he won’t count on dividend income to retire anymore. In his retirement plan, he wanted to generate 90K in revenue. Assuming a 3% dividend yield, he would need $3M… that’s enough to think differently! I appreciate his point of view as I also don’t want to retire on a small income. My goal is to earn around $100K/year at retirement too… but that’s quite a challenge!
Lanny reviews Norfolk Southern (NSC). This is a train company (what better industry than transportation to generate a constant flow of dividend?). The stock recently dropped after warning profit won’t be as juice as before. Lanny took a dive in the 8% dip and the stock went back up a few weeks after. Sounds like a good move so far!
Dividend Engineering reviews Eaton Corporation (ETN). ETN is a manufacturer and supplier of electrical, hydraulic and mechanical power management equipments. The analysis looks good but the stock is stagnating since 2012… I would definitely dig further to find what is wrong.
DivGro bought Cummins (CMI). This utility shows a very strong dividend growth rate (14.5% over the past TEN YEARS). Are you surprised the stock outperformed the S&P 500? Another company to look into!
Dividend Growth Investors explains how Dividend Growth Stocks Increase Intrinsic Value over Time. This is a very interesting point of view on the virtue of patience for an investor. Keeping dividend stocks for years will not only reward you with increasing dividend but the stock value itself is going to rise.
My Dividend Growth recently bought Franklin Resources (BEN). BEN is a well-known investing firm with an impressive double digit dividend growth rate over the past ten years. While the P/E is low and the dividend growth is impressive, the company seriously lagged behind the stock market during the curren bull market. I would be interested to find out why.
Dividend Dreamer looks to buy more of GE. Definitely, General Electric is popular these days! There are tons of comments on this article, it worth taking a look!
TwoInvesting is also buying GE and he sold MCD to make his trade. I agree with this trade, I also got rid of MCD a few months ago. Not because it was lagging behind in term of performance, but because I don’t see how it could perform well in the next five years.
And a Special Mention To…
