  • Dividend Growth Investing Wins Again? 0 comments
    Apr 13, 2012 9:39 PM | about stocks: PG

    '''Over the last 36 years, dividend stocks have outperformed the rest of the S&P 500 by 2.5% annually, and they outperformed nonpayers by nearly 8% every year, all while paying out cash to their shareholders, according to data compiled by Ned Davis Research. The numbers are even more compelling when looking at companies that consistently increase their payouts.''' From http://www.thestreet.com/story/11494621/1/6-dividend-stocks-that-want-to-pay-you-more-money.html

    That is why I own companies like Proctor & Gamble (NYSE:PG), who today announced a 7% increase in their dividend payout. I don't know about you, but I think a 7% raise is quite nice. The government says CPI-U inflation over the past year was 1/2 that, so this increase is easily keeping up with that standard measure of inflation.

    Disclosure: I am long PG.
