Hold Dividend Payers To Weather Stock Market Volatility / Stock-Markets / Dividends

By: WMA

So far in 2018, equities have swung wildly, leaving market participants with whiplash. Consider that the S&P 500 rose +7.5% in January, fell -11.5% in early February, jumped back +10.5% in March, fell back -8.2% at the end of March, rallied +5.4% in early April only to give back -3.7% since last week. Phew! Investors who have relied on the “trend is your friend” investment strategy have gotten absolutely crushed so far this year. Those who have made money in 2018 are the algorithmic and high-frequency traders, as well as the courageous (and lucky) day traders willing to stand in front of apparent run-away moves. 

For most of us, trying to “trade” a volatile market, guessing which way a squiggly line will turn, is most often a losing proposition. Instead of buying rallies on optimism and selling after the market drops on fear -- a game that won’t last long no matter what the size of your portfolio – a much better strategy for most investors in a volatile market is patience. Hold high quality companies which pay a regular dividend (preferably with a high dividend yield), don’t fret about market swings, and patiently collect your dividend payments.

Dividend Fund Choices for Long-Term Investors / Companies / Dividends

By: Submissions

Market Bulls writes: With global interest rates holding at historically low levels, many long-term investors are looking for new ways of generating income returns.  One of the most attractive choices in the space is the Vanguard High Dividend Yield Index Fund (VHDYX), which is an open-end fund. The central aim of the fund is to track the share price and dividend performance seen in the FTSE High Dividend Yield Index, which is comprised of common stocks that offer higher dividends when compared to the sector averages.

Here’s Why You Should Look for Dividend Stocks — and How / Companies / Dividends

By: John_Mauldin

BY TONY SAGAMI : I love dividends, and I’m not alone.

One of the biggest dividend lovers of all is Warren Buffett. He has more than 90% of the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio invested in dividend-paying stocks.

Sure, a 1%, 2%, or 3% dividend may not sound like a fortune, but what looks like small payouts really adds up.

For the first seven months of 2016, the S&P 500 was up 6.3%.With dividends, the total return increased to 7.7%. That’s an extra 22%!

Stock Investors Get Higher Returns and More Dividend Income - In Less Time With Less Risk / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

Investing in blue-chip dividend growth stocks such as the Dividend Aristocrats or Champions has become very popular with retirees.  This is understandable considering the low interest rate environment we find ourselves in.  Traditional fixed income investments do not currently offer enough yield for the retired investor to live on.  Consequently, current low interest rates, coupled with the possibility of a steadily increasing level of dividend income have made dividend growth stocks a viable and even attractive alternative.

When choosing the appropriate dividend growth stock, many dividend growth investors will rightfully focus on the company’s dividend record and dividend growth more than they will its price history.  However, this can be a detrimental practice if the investor ignores valuation.  Unfortunately, this is not an uncommon practice.  There are many dividend growth investors who will invest in a blue-chip Dividend Aristocrat even when it is overvalued at the time.  Many of these investors argue that since the dividend is what is of paramount importance, being out of a blue-chip will cause them to generate less dividend income.  To these investors, a dividend missed is a dividend lost.

Retirees: I Did Not Buy IBM to Sell, It’s About The Dividend Income Stupid / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

There are many investing strategies and principles that retired investors can utilize to reduce the risk associated with investing in equities (stocks) for their retirement portfolios.  Choosing to invest in the highest quality stocks your mind can conceive sits at the top of the list.  There are many components that investors can analyze and examine to determine whether a company is high quality or not.

The primary determinant of high quality is superior financial strength.  Financially strong companies possess the staying power and resources to weather the occasional bad storms that will inevitably occur.  Every business will on occasion face challenges and difficulties.  Meeting those challenges requires a strong balance sheet and an adaptive and competent management team to guide the company across troubled waters.

The Hottest New Place to Find Stock Dividend Income in Q2/2015 / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Many investors believe that growth and income are mutually exclusive – that you can’t have one if you want the other. So they don’t give a second thought to high-growth sectors that haven’t traditionally paid out.

It’s one of the costliest mistakes they can make, for the simple reason that the markets change constantly. Think about it for a moment. Just because a sector hasn’t paid dividends in the past and it hasn’t been attractive to income investors, doesn’t mean that it won’t be in the future.

Six Dividend-Paying Blue Chips Selling at a Discount / Companies / Dividends

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: One of the key tenets to success in the stock market, as I have learned from more than 20 years of trading, is the need to make sure you have a system in place to actively monitor your outstanding positions. Any major changes to the underlying fundamentals are critical.

Unless you invest in mutual funds or are happy with a buy-and-hold strategy, ignoring your positions is not prudent and will likely result in damage to your portfolio—and maybe even your quality of life.

Top-Yielding Dividend Stocks to Combat Low Interest Rates / Companies / Dividends

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Paul Whitefoot writes: Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen has confirmed what most already knew. The recovery in the U.S. jobs market is far from complete. Yellen noted that the unemployment rate has improved since the Federal Reserve initiated its last round of quantitative easing in late 2012, falling from 8.1% to 6.6%. Curiously, in 2013, the U.S. economy grew just two percent.

Ignore the Dividend Stocks Bubble Babble / Companies / Dividends

By: Investment_U

Marc Lichtenfeld writes: As every investor knows, dividend stocks have been hot for years. Since the market bottomed in March 2009, the Dow Jones Select Dividend Index is up 226%, versus 171% for the S&P 500.

And lately, the idea of a market bubble has been gaining momentum. Alex demolished the notion of a broad-market bubble on Friday.

My Six Favorite Growing Dividend Paying Stocks / Companies / Dividends

By: Profit_Confidential

Mitchell Clark, B.Comm writes: The stock market typically reacts quite positively when a company beats Wall Street consensus. But in a considerable number of cases, a company’s share price after-earnings bounce isn’t really warranted, considering the run-up in anticipation.

Many stocks go up in value after beating expectations, but many numbers this quarter actually reveal a contraction in business conditions.

This 3.5% Dividend Payout Is "High Yield" in Disguise, Best Dividend ETFs / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Robert Hsu writes: If I offered you an investment that pays 3.5% a year, and one that pays 12% a year, which one would you choose?

All else being equal, we'd be fools not to take the 12% offer.

Of course, "all else" is rarely equal... especially in a rising interest-rate environment. "Growth," as you'll recall, is the new "income."

The Secret Double-Digit Dividend Income Stocks / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Martin Hutchinson writes: Dividend stocks have been bid up in 2013, and many investors believe the yawn-inducing dividends of 3-4% generally available now aren't worth the risks involved in an overheated income sector.

Many stocks paying higher dividends, in the tantalizing 8-10% range, are paying them out of capital, which is hardly a good thing. A number of companies are paying a fixed dividend where it's mathematically impossible for investors to get their money back just because so many unwary investors are craving big, easy income.

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.

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.

There is a growing trend towards doing-it-yourself (DIY) portfolio management.
