  • Is Tupperware Brands The Perfect Dividend Growth Stock For Retirement Portfolios? [View article]
    The income from LNT and WEC would be easier to replace than that from AVA. I have read this rumours too and can only hope,that he pays a good premium if he picks one off

  • Realty Income: One Heck Of An Ark That's Prepared For The Storms Ahead [View article]
    I agree with chowder. I have two batches, one bought in 2012 for $39 and change and another bought in December for $37 and change. I reinvest the dividends. I am overweight and have no intention to sell. Total return on both positions is about 13%. Had a notion to sell last year when the price zoomed, but it is a core position. If it had been a more speculative one, I may well have taken profits like some others here did.

  • Wisconsin Energy Corp. - Dividend Fact Sheet [View article]
    The TTM payout ratio, according to Morningstar, is 57.6%. The company still has a way to go before hitting its target of 65-70%.

    The quarterly dividend is up from .30 to .39 since I opened my position in 12/2012. As WEC approaches it's target payout ratio, increases will certainly moderate and be closer to earnings/cash flow growth. It is a well-managed utility in a benign regulatory environment. I am pleased to own it.

  • Dominion Resources: Will Natural Gas E&P Make This Stock A Winner For Retirees? [View article]
    I have owned D since Feb., 2013. Total return is 29% so far. I am happy and I am also grateful that Chowder's writings initially pointed me in D's direction.

  • Apple's Dividend At $20 In 5 Years? Not Gonna Happen [View article]
    There are reasons to own Apple, particularly for value investors. The potential for dividend growth is but one of them.

    There are also reasons to avoid owning Apple. Both this article and Tim's barely scratch the surface.

    I suggest looking up and reading Posts at Eventide for a more comprehensive look at Apple's fundamentals, if you are interested in that

  • Requiem For Fallen Dividend Aristocrats [View article]
    So, if we have another Great Recession that is worse than anything since the Great Depression, some dividend growth investors may not do well. Folks are chasing yield in companies whose core business is losing relevance (Pitney Bowes, for example), and do not heed the many warning signs, they may have have a bit of trouble with that position.

    Fair enough. It is also the case that some dividend growth investors saw their dividend income increase in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

  • Wisconsin Energy Corp. - Dividend Fact Sheet [View article]
    Any article about WEC that does not include information on the Board approved goal of increasing the payout ratio to between 65 and 70% is woefully lacking in research on the company.

    That includes this one.

  • My Transition To Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) [View article]
    Thanks for your article Norman!

    I am 62 and retired this year. Mt wife is 59 and is also retired. For the time being we are continuing to reinvest dividends, but this is a transition year and we will have a better handle on our living expenses and budget in a few more months.

    Our current plan to to cover early RMDs from dividend income when that time comes, but I honestly have not taken a close look at it yet. Maybe next year after we get a bit more settled

    Thanks form the answer, Bob.

    Steady as she goes is not yet a natural state of affairs for me as I am used to doing something. Mornings like this one, though, when I wake up to dividends from TGT, CVX, and SE do make it easier to do very little :)

    Chowder has some excellent blogs on this site about his stock selection process and how he subsequently monitors the companies he owns.

    I think it means that the 5 year Compound Annual Growth Rate (OTCPK:CAGR) was 10%.
