  • Waste Management, Inc. Dividend Stock Analysis [View article]
    jnpfl: The 3.31% used in the analysis is based on a 20-year Treasury used to approximate a forward looking 20 year MMA rate.

    Unfortunately SA strips some of the links in my article, including the one explaining this. Here is the link for anyone interested:

  • 10 Stocks Enticing Investors With Higher Dividends [View article]
    Louverture: I listed $0.71 for CLX in error. This was its old dividend rate. Its new dividend is $0.74 per share. My apologies for the error.

    I suspect it is because of the 10% stock dividend. This is probably the ex-dividend date for the May 15 payment.

  • Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Dividend Stock Analysis [View article]
    Mr. Wagner: I use a 20-Year Treasury as my proxy for the 20 year average MMA rate. Obviously, the 20-Year Treasury rate is available. When I set up my methodology years ago, the MMA rate and 20-year Treasury where very close (both around 5%, if I remember correctly). More people understood (owned) MMAs than Treasuries so I used that nomenclature.

  • Microsoft Corporation Dividend Stock Analysis [View article]
    Cheesehusker: The calculated fair value is $68.12. A dividend growth rate of 17.5% along with a moderately high yield really juices the result.

    The question to ask is how long MSFT can maintain that growth rate. With a 42% free cash flow payout and a record level of cash on the balance sheet, it is not in immediate danger.

  • First Quarter 2014: Top And Bottom Performing Dividend Stocks [View article]
    alschroed: No need to "re-DO" my math. The internal rate of returns are calculated with Excel's xirr() function which calculates an annualized internal rate of return based on the beginning balance and specific cashflows of each investment on the designated date of each cashflow.

    You are correct that was a typo. It should be JMP Group Inc. (JMP), not JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM).

    Sorry for the confusion.

  • 15 Stocks Using Cash To Pay Higher Dividends [View article]
    Note: The dividend on CWT is the annual, not quarterly dividend. It should read:

    "California Water Service Group (CWT) provides water utility and other related services in California, Washington, New Mexico, and Hawaii. January 28th the company increased its quarterly dividend 1.6% to $0.1625 per share. The dividend is payable February 21, 2014 to stockholders of record on February 10, 2014. The yield based on the new payout is 2.8%."

  • Performance Review: 2013-Q4 [View article]
    Mr. Johnson: I use The S&P 500 and BRK as my benchmarks because they are so widely followed. VYM and/or VIG could just as easily be used. Like you, a reliable and growing income is much more important to me than always beating an index. However, I do believe over an entire cycle I will outperform the S&P 500.

    My apologies, the sentence should have read:

    "At the time of this writing, I held no position in HRL (0.0% of my Dividend Growth Portfolio)."
