    • Q4 net dividend increases of $12.7B compared to $8.4B in 2012 Q4, according to S&P. The number of increases (885), however, pales in comparison to the 1,266 "tax-incentivized" hikes from a year ago (there were 649 in 2011).
    • Of roughly 10K traded stocks, 51 companies cut payouts in Q4 compared to 154 in the year-earlier quarter.
    • Room for more hikes? S&P's Howard Silverblatt notes payout rates - which historically average 52% - continue to remain near their low of 36%. "At this point, we expect Q1 to be a very busy positive period for dividends, with 2014 setting another record for payments."
    • The weighted dividend yield off 2.44% compares to 2.6% in Q3 and 2.8% in Q4 of 2012 as boosted payouts aren't quite keeping pace with the strong advance in equity prices.

    State Street launches the SPDR 1-10 Year TIPS ETF (TIPX), set to track the Barclays 1-10 Year Government Inflation-linked Bond Index. It appears similar in structure to another State Street TIPS fund (IPE), but with an expense ratio 3.5 bps lower at 0.15%. Also launched is the SPDR S&P Global Dividend ETF (WDIV), set to track the S&P Global Dividend Aristocrats Index. It has a cost of 0.40% and joins competitors DEW and LVL, each of those with coming with slightly higher costs.

    Stocks outdo bonds as the 1.6K companies in the MSCI World Index yield 2.7% vs. 2.6% on the BAML Global Corporate Index, according to Bloomberg. Yielding just 6.1% the gap of junk bonds over equities is at its lowest since 1995. "Increasingly, dynamic capital allocators are being forced to consider equities," says one bullish strategist.

    Strubel Investment notes the horrid record of managements using cash for buybacks or M&A. Buybacks are simple - companies tend to do them when the share price is high (JPMorgan a classic example: It suspended purchases after the CIO loss with the stock near $30, and will rev them up again next year in the 40's). The top tax rates for dividends would have to rise to 70-80% to make them less valuable than the alternatives.

    Why does high-yield in reference to bonds signal greater risk to investors, but high-dividend yield in reference to equities does not, wonders a fund strategist. When it comes to dividend ETFs, it pays to consider total return first, writes Paul Britt, as the yield and performance can vary ... widely.

    "An attempt to quantify ... a qualitative process," is how Morningstar's Josh Peters describes the creation of the Dividend Yield Focus Index. Most dividend indexes, he says, are entirely backward looking. Instead, Peters looks for an economic moat to protect against a dividend ever being cut. Thus far, it's working: The ETF benchmarked to the index (HDV) is outperforming DVY by a wide margin since the April 2011 launch.

    Currently weighting U.S. telecoms and utilities at zero in his dividend stock portfolio, Pimco's Brad Kinkelaar notes both sectors are trading at near off-the-chart premiums to their average relative multiple. Dividend investors would do better to look overseas, he says, where one can find companies that are growing, paying good dividends, and trading at better value. An excellent presentation.
