  • Community Trust Bank Corp. Dividend Stock Analysis [View article]
    I failed to update that section. It should read:

    "The company’s peer group includes: IberiaBank Corp. (IBKC) with a 2.4% yield, Hancock Holding Co. (HBHC) with a 3.0% yield, and Capital City Bank Group Inc. (CCBG) with a 0.0% yield."

    My apologies for any confusion.

  • Colgate-Palmolive Dividend Stock Analysis [View article]
    jimrogersfan: That's a big question. I will try to summarize my buy process at a very high level.

    I use my D4L-Dashboard and D4L-Data for the selection process. These are updated each Friday after the market closes. I look at more than just star ratings, but will start with 3-5 star stocks. I exclude those that have been purchased in the last 90 days, ones I am over allocated in (>5%), those in an industry that I am over-allocated in and those with a yield below my minimum (currently 2.5%). In addition, I will consider certain key metrics and their direction.

    Once potential targets are determined I do a quick check of the news/filings to see if anything has occurred to change the stock's long-term outlook.

    I generally invest in my Dividend Growth Portfolio 3 times a month (the first 3 Mondays). My last buy was last Monday. I don't publicly disclose individual buys/sells (that is a premium feature for my subscribers).

    Hope this helps,

  • 7 Select High Yield S&P 500 Dividend Stocks [View article]
    The screen criteria sentence should read as follows:

    "This week week, I screened my dividend growth stocks database for stocks that are members of the S&P 500, have a yield of 4% or more and have increased their dividend for 10 or more consecutive years."

    It incorrectly says 5% in the article above. I started with 5%, but nothing relevant was returned, then I lowered it to 4%. SA picked up the article from my site before I made the correction.

    My apologies for any confusion.

    b10845:

    The $117.37 is a sensitivity. The price "could" increase to $117.37 and the NPV MMA Differential would still be above my required $500 given the current dividend growth rate.

    heglimp: I never sell a stock on valuation alone. Sometimes a high valuation will mess up the dividend fundamentals, then I will sell. For more info see:

    I sold my CTL position.

  • Wells Fargo: This Buffett Stock Is Back With A Vengeance, Raising Its Dividend 14% [View article]
    Dr. Roberts: Much of what you said is correct. However, Mr. Kovacevich said he was compelled to take the money due to the pending Wachovia acquisition.

    Companies are judged on results. The reality is that income investors in WFC (I held WFC at the time) saw a decline in their earnings due to the WFC dividend cut, in return WFC was allowed to close its acquisition. Not all banks chose to take TARP funds they 'didn't want or need.'

    Here is a link to Richard Kovacevich's discussion of the situation. It is an interesting video:
