  • Dividend Quick Picks For 2013 0 comments

    I find this to be a best of breed list dividend grower list for the very long term, more passive investor, diversified across sectors, inspired by "SPLV + E" article:

    Some of the names, such as O and KMI, are selling at a premium, however with a long term horizon they should do just fine. Others like CB and INTC are still selling at slight discounts.

    KMI was chosen over KMP to eliminate the K-1 form at tax time. KMR is the other alternative for investors looking to avoid short term taxes completely, however the dividend is received in the form of shares and not dollars paid.

    Note that BBL and VOD are both UK based, however due to treaties investors will not have foreign tax withheld on dividends received.
