  • 5 Dividend Stocks That Gave Me A 20%+ Annualized Return [View article]
    The Rebel and Uain53: You are correct I picked up the annualized return for LEG and then picked up the wrong line for the remaining data. The section should read as:

    LEG makes a broad line of bedding and furniture components and other home, office and commercial furnishings, as well as products for non-furnishings markets. I first purchased the stock in March 2010 at $20.29. It has increased its dividend each year and is currently yielding 3.4%. Since that first purchase I have added to my position 5 times as the stock price continued to increase. Over the period I held the stock, my annualized return is 20.9%.

    I have submitted the correction to SA. Thanks for pointing it out!

  • Medtronic: Benefits Of Covidien Acquisition Not Enough To Make It A Buy [View article]
    easydom: Agreed. I would be very unhappy if I were still a shareholder. I bit the bullet and sold last year to offset some capital losses.

  • Medtronic: Benefits Of Covidien Acquisition Not Enough To Make It A Buy [View article]
    warrantstar: Based on the historical numbers, I calculate that MDT is overvalued. Part of premium could be attributed to the expected tax benefit and new markets from the Covidien acquisition. However, the company's release said the acquisition would not be accretive to its Cash Earnings until "FY2016 and Significantly Accretive thereafter."

    I will watch how well the acquisition is integrated before passing judgement.

    jjonesg1: No military experience, but I have always been a planner to a fault - it drives my wife and kids crazy.

    The one legacy I want to leave my kids is an understanding of the importance of invest in quality blue-chip dividend growth stocks.

    They will come down in price. Over time it all cycles. We may not get a sale as good as 2007-2008's though.

    Jeff: I am not quite earning my annual pay in dividends yet. However, if I had to live off of my dividends, it would not be a drastic cut in lifestyle since I now save a large percentage of my annual pay.

  • Lockheed Martin Corp. Priced To Buy [View article]
    I don't read morningstar so I can't comment on what they do. Here is a link to how I value dividend growth stocks:

    http://bit.ly/upwbHP

    Under the Tools tab is the model (D4L-PreScreen.xls) that I use to calculate the MMA NPV Diff price. As noted above, the values are "mechanically calculated and is based on historical information" my values are not tweaked based on what I think the outcome should be.

    "In calculating fair value, I consider the NPV MMA Differential Fair Value, along with these four calculations of fair value..."

    The NPV MMA is also used and it carries the largest weighting.

    At some point I am sure they will split the stock, most companies do (except BRK).

    rlp2451 and RSRinehart: Thanks for the feedback. I pulled TCAP from a different source and obviously picked up some questionable data.

    Buyandhold 2012: Well said. I think understanding the psychology of investing is just as important as understanding investing fundamentals. Sometime we can be our own worst enemy.

    Miguel Arnot: It is a matter of preference. I find PCEF's distribution a little more volatile than I prefer.

    Investor7020: For me evaluating a ETF/CEF is much more difficult than an individual stock since ETFs/CEFs are often made up of many individual stocks. What I look at is historical share price movements, distributions (erratic, stable growing?), return of capital, use of leverage, manager tenure, and such.
