  • 3% Yield Is Right On Target For Dividend Investors [View article]
    Not quite, you are assuming no growth in the dividend. TGT's track record for dividend growth would suggest that is a flawed assumption.

    Two increases this year, from $0.52 to $0.54 in January, and now up to $0.57. No complaints here.

  • The Pundits Are Wrong, Sell These Stocks Immediately [View article]
    I agree with rubel. The author's advice might be appropriate for a trader, but for a long term investor looking for dividend income that will keep pace with inflation, selling stocks with such a solid history of dividend payments would be silly. Of course, that long term investor should have a nice bucket of stocks across many sectors.

  • Is Dividend Growth Investing Enthusiasm Inflating A Bubble? [View article]
    I think there is a difference between blindly chasing high dividends (or high dividend growers) and only purchasing these stocks if they meet certain entry criteria (e.g., P/E ratio, DPR, etc.). I follow the latter. Also, not all DGI's just buy and hold. If circumstances change (e.g., dividend cut) then selling might be appropriate.

  • Dividend Stocks Are Not In A Bubble, But Many Of Them Are Pricey [View article]
    Thanks for another great article, David. Always very helpful.

    Apologies for a comment/question that is not directly relevant to this article, but I wanted to get the thoughts of this community on a dividend growth investor-related question, and didn't know of a better way to ask.

    For those of you who reinvest your dividends back into the stock, to buy additional shares, have any of you gone through a transfer to another broker? I ask because I was all set to initiate a transfer of my account, but my new broker will not take partial shares in the transfer. This would throw quite a wrench into my record keeping that tracks all of the dividend reinvestments. I don't really like the idea of liquidating the partial shares for all of my stocks, only to start it up again with the new brokerage. Just interested in hearing if others have faced this predicament and how you handled it. Thank you.

    I suppose avoiding this situation is another benefit to pooling your dividends before purchasing, a practice I know many of you adhere to. Thanks again.

  • Buy ConocoPhillips: Highest Dividend Yield In E&P Sector, Focus On Targeted Growth [View article]
    Added some COP to my Roth IRA this morning when it was down a bit. I hope to keep it for many years to come, reinvesting the dividends along the way. Of course, if things change I will act accordingly.

  • Is Coca-Cola's Long-Term Future In Doubt? [View article]
    I sure hope KO will adapt and diversify their product line away from solely drinks. The downward trend of soda consumption is real, and increasing each year. At least PEP has the snack business.
