I screened my database of the best dividend growth stocks in order to find the next pick for the Dividend Yield Passive Income Portfolio. I thought it makes sense to look this time for lower yielding stocks with a high degree of safety.
I found Wal-Mart as attractive long-term opportunity. The current yield is at 2.37 percent and the P/E amounts to 15.79 while the forward P/E is at 13.48....
Dividend Investors should have a quiet overview of stocks with upcoming ex dividend dates.
The ex dividend date is the final date on which the new stock buyer couldn’t receive the next dividend. If you like to receive the dividend, you need to buy the stock before the ex dividend date. I made a little screen of the best yielding stocks with a higher capitalization that have their ex date on the next trading week. A full list of all stocks with payment dates can be found here: Ex-Dividend Stocks Between May 06-12, 2013. In total, 122 stocks and preferred shares go ex dividend - of which 41 yield more than 3 percent. The average yield amounts to 3.26%.
On the first day of each month, I create a quick dividend list (from low-yield to high-yield paying stocks) of stocks with interesting performance and valuation figures. Stocks from that list are mid- and large caps (market capitalization of more than USD 1 billion) with double-digit long-term earnings growth rates. The companies are traded at AMEX, NYSE, NASDAQ and part of the Dow Jones, S&P 500 or Nasdaq Composite. The list is selected by the following criteria and sorted by dividend yield.
Growth solves many problems but it could also create some when its not productive.
Within the investment scene, growth is a wonderful item for wealth creating. I personally like growth stocks especially when they pay good dividends and the board let grow them too. But growth is not an easy solution. A company creates only values, if it grows with a higher profitability: When the return on investments are high enough, shareholders will benefit from the company’s successful expansion too.

Super investors made a great return in the past and they got very rich. Not all started to make money with little stock trading. Some of them made big deals with huge loans. They took the risk and won the game.
Carl Icahn is such a person. He is an activist with $12 billion market value of his Icahn Capital Management vehicle. Herbalife, Transocean or Dell, Icahn is still named as investor who stirs up the pastry.
Today I like to look at the biggest dividend positions of Carl Icahn as of Q4/2012. His full portfolio has only 15 companies, which is not much and looks very undiversified. Warren Buffett still has more stocks in his portfolio and he is also no big asset gatherer.
Icahn is no dividend lover; he has only four dividend stocks. His biggest dividend machine is the own property management company, Icahn Enterprises. IEP pays a 7.07 percent yield.
I purchased 20 Raytheon (RTN) shares last Friday for my Dividend Yield Passive Income Portfolio, a 100k virtual funded project on October 03, 2012. The total purchase price was $1,145.80 at a price of $54.04. Here is what the company manufactures: Raytheon provides electronics, mission systems integration, and other capabilities in the areas of sensing, effects, and command, control, communications, and intelligence systems, as well as a range of mission support services in the United States and internationally. The company's Integrated Defense Systems segment provides integrated air and missile defense, radar solutions, and naval combat and ship electronic systems. Raytheon is the fourth largest public traded US military stock behind Lockheed Martin, Boeing and General Dynamics. LMT is also part of my DYPI-Portfolio with a nearly flat performance since I bought them but LMT pays a great yield of around 5 percent....
Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. Last week was an interesting one because some of the big players announced a dividend hike, in-line with the expectations of the market. They are still continuing long-term dividend grower. Below the results are IBM, PepsiCo, Costco, American Express or Royal Dutch.
In total, 60 shares and six ETFs announced a hike, in average a 30.05 percent increase. Eleven of them pay a high yields; 37 have a current buy or better recommendation.
The markets are at All-Time-Highs and nobody scares this. I hate it when stocks getting more expensive and yields go rapidly down because I must limit my stock purchases. In such an environment, a dividend growth investor can’t build values when a slow growing stock pays a 1.5 percent yield - a value similar to the bond market yields. Let’s hope that earnings and sales grow in the same amount.
Healthcare dividend stocks with low forward P/E ratios originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Wow, the stock market rises from month to month. The negative thing is that stock prices rise faster than the earnings and stocks getting therefore more expensive. This is a development which is still healthy because of the low yielding bond market. But it’s not sustainable if the interest rates rise. Everybody can imagine what happens if the Fed hikes its rates.
So, my major screening focus goes to cheap stocks, stocks with a low price to earnings ratio. Below is a list of the 20 cheapest healthcare dividend stockswith a forward P/E of less than 15. Health care plans companies are currently the cheapest choice in the list. Two High-Yields are part of the results and fifteen companies are recommended to buy.

Now day’s experts are recommending those dividends paying stocks that consistently paid dividends during depressions, financial recessions, world wars, and other political and economic ruin. Here are some high quality growth stocks to consider: - Middlesex Water (NASDAQ: MSEX) is a water utility company. This company provides quality water and wastewater service to residents in parts of New Jersey and Delaware, and beyond. It works in two segments: regulated or non-regulated. Its regulated segment has...
High-Yield dividend growth stocks with low debt originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". I often tell that growth and income growth are two major items in wealth creating.
Another criterion is the debt level. A company with an indebtedness has much more possibilities to grow or to create something special. Companies with a huge debt load must create management teams to handle this debt and look for new finance rounds.
I love it when stocks have a low debt to equity ratio. But it’s only an additional stone in the wall of corporate finance and valuation.
Today I like to highlight the highest dividend paying stocks (over five percent dividend yield) with more than five years of consecutive dividend growth and a debt to equity ratio of less than one. The ratio is not really low but it’s ok for a higher yielding company in my view. What matters in this area is the expected growth. Growth destroys debt. A growing income makes it easier to pay back the loans.
Nineteen companies fulfilled these criteria of which seven have a buy or better rating. Oil and gas pipeline stocks and drilling companies are the dominating industries in this screen.
