    Funny you should mention that, my first child was born just last week! I plan to start him a dividend portfolio very soon. Do you have any advice or learned something along the way that you'd do differently?

  • 7 Dividend Paying Stocks For A Safe Alternative To CDs [View article]
    Hi hgreene. The dividend payment itself means little if its not compared to the price of the stock. Let's say Company A is paying $2 annual div and the stock is selling for $100/share and Company B is paying $0.50 annual div and its stock is selling for $10 / share.

    A $10,000 investment in Company A (100 shares) will get you $200 in dividend income where as $10,000 investment in Company B (1000 shares) would get you $500 in dividend income.

    If you limit yourself to looking for stocks that only pay $1.00 or more in dividends you will be missing out on a lot of good dividend stocks. The yield tells the real story about what you're getting for your investment.

  • Buy Intel At The 4% Yield Price [View article]
    Nice article Norman. Is it odd to get excited about the potential of the price going down in a long-term holding? Maybe that's just a quality reserved for us DG investors. Anytime INTC's price dropped below $20 in the past few years I was buying. I'm sure we've seen the last of those days, maybe $24 can be the new $20. I know I would be a buyer.

  • Abbott: Still A Dividend Growth Stalwart? [View article]
    Great article David, I couldn't agree more. I hold both ABT and COP in my dividend portfolio. I didn't get that warm fuzzy feeling about ABT's decision like I did for COP's. For now it's time to be patient until we get a clear picture on how these two companies will operate. I'm hoping the Diversified Medical Products Company operates in a similar fashion to the current company, but it may have a hard time growing the dividend as before without the growth the Pharmaceutical side provided. Time will tell.

  • 3 Mid Cap Stocks For The Retiree Part 1 [View article]
    Norman - Good info about mid cap div companies. I've been looking for strong, mid-cap dividend stocks to add to my portfolio. I've mostly limited myself to the big boys and need to diversify. I like your "Tweed Model metrics", I'd be interested to hear how you came about this.

    Uncle Pennybags! Always good to hear from you.

    I love those examples, it really sends the point home. Especially when you use a well known company like MO.

  • 3 Vital Components Of A Dividend Investing Strategy [View article]
    Although I have explored covered calls and believe low beta dividend stocks are good candidates for that strategy, I don't plan to complicate my investment strategy with options. My ideal dividend stock is one that I can hold for life, so the goal is to identify and invest in those companies.

    Great article Chuck, very detailed. I am one of those investors who got in based on the dividend and hope to be DRIP'ing it for a very long time. I think its got a bright dividend growth future and recently wrote an article highlighting that.

    Yes, my main focus is on the dividend and its future growth. The points you make are absolutely valid and something I will have to consider when doing further DD on the stocks I mentioned. This analysis was done to narrow the field down, now additional research needs to be done before I make any purchases.
