  • Aflac Dividend Growth Stock Analysis [View article]
    Absolutely. My goal is long term dividend growth, not immediate income. When I buy a stock I'm hoping to hold and DRIP for 25 years and then use the dividend as passive income.

  • Dividend Stock Analysis: Altria Group [View article]
    I agree Chowder and have been trying to come up with some variables for such cases. REITs will be another instance, so some tweaking is needed in those situations. If MO's payout ratio would have been under 75% I was going to award a point based on the type of business they are in. Since it was so high, I decided to not mention it nor change my default 60%.

    Excellent point though, I intend to address this in a future analysis. Thanks for the constructive comment.

  • 3 Vital Components Of A Dividend Investing Strategy [View article]
    Yeah, its ridiculous what they allow some people with a soap box to stand on to say. I'm not a fan of the "Mad Money" philosophy on how to get rich. Slow and steady wins this race.

    Thanks for following! Hopefully you find my posts applicable to your situation. Many of my posts may appeal to the younger investors so we can take advantage of that all important "time" factor, but judging from stated holdings, we have a lot in common.

    I completely agree with you about banks becoming great dividend stocks again. I've recently initiated a position in PNC and hope to do analysis on others. Now is great time to be a dividend growth investor, you gotta love those stock sales.

    Hi Bob. Good question, yes they have. In April 2011 as part of their "Amgen Outlines Strategy, Growth Objectives and Capital Allocation Plans" news release they stated that they intend to "return an average of approximately 60 percent of adjusted net income in the form of dividends and stock repurchases to stockholders through 2015." Obviously as long as they are achieving their growth goals there is no reason to assume they would not continue this beyond 2015.

  • Searching For A Dividend Growth Utility Stock [View article]
    Thanks Mike, I'm glad I'm not alone in regards to Utilities. Is there anything about SO or PPL that have stood out to you in your research? I'm just beginning my DD in each to further narrow down my potential buy list, so I'd be interested to hear any pro's and con's to each.

    And thanks for the recommendation, I'll have to take a look at Chuck's series on utilities.

  • Hasbro Dividend Income Analysis: Current Yield Presents A Buying Opportunity [View article]
    Good question Bob. When evaluating a stock for dividend income purposes I want a stock that has low volatility. Although there is not a direct correlation between dividend safety and beta, you will typically find the more reliable dividend paying companies also have lower beta scores. I wanted to include Beta in my analysis and "Reliability" seemed like the best section for it. The section should probably be renamed "Safety & Reliability".

    Sounds like we have similar methodologies. I hope they have been rewarding for you as well. Best of luck.

  • 7 Dividend Paying Stocks For A Safe Alternative To CDs [View article]
    Thanks north. With the recent run in dividend paying stocks its a little harder to find a lot of high quality companies paying over 5%. I imagine we will see a pull back at some point that will allow for more buying opportunities. I like the 4% cutoff when focusing on income as that seems include a lot more dividend growth plays as well.

    Best of luck to you.

  • Target Dividend Growth Analysis: All Around Strength, Some Concern Over Payout Ratio [View article]
    Good question John. The point scale is not an absolute Yes/No for buying. The analysis gives us a picture of the dividend health of the company and current valuation. I use this analysis as a filter for stocks that I should take a deeper look at (6 points and above) and those I can pass on for now (less that 6 points). There are times when a stock will score high but I would not buy due too such things as high valuation, current micro-economic events occurring with the stock or sector, impending litigation, etc... I always state my overall view of the stock in my conclusion. Of course, you should always do your own DD before buying.
