  • 35 Companies To Pay More Cash For Its Owners

    The markets drive into panic while volatility is rising. Did you buy some stocks during the small sell-off?

    I did but only one micro position. I still believe that the markets are too expensive and wait.

    No, the world will not go down! That's something I can promise you whatever happens. If the markets falls he will one day recover because of the growing world population who wants to satisfy their desires.

    The national monetary banks are printing money and they won't keep cash expensive. Everybody should be liquid and the economic growth and employment figures are more important than inflation, that's the key statement of the FED.

    In general, I love it when stock prices fall because companies become cheaper and one day I can buy a high quality company for a solid price. Dividends and share buybacks are also two shareholder friendly activities about which I care.

    I like to see that the company not only pays dividends to satisfy their shareholder, they should grow their sales, income and dividends as well.

    All of this actions is only sustainable if the corporate structure grows, if the firm employs more people, sells more units at the same margin.

    I told you and my friends: Only a growing company is a good company and those will give your portfolio a raise when you haven't overpaid them.

    During the past week, a few companies raised their dividends and announced a new stock buyback program. The biggest dividend growers are Goldman Sachs, Enterprise Products Partners as well as Texas Instruments.

    On the share buyback side, 14 companies announced a new or additional buyback plan. Brown-Forman, GAP and J.M. Smucker are the biggest stocks on the list.

  • These 12 Stocks Pay More Money To Shareholders

    The week comes to an end and I like to show you the latest dividend grower and share buyback companies in this article.

    It was also a hard week for short-term orientated investors because volatility rises due to topics like Ebola and a weaker European economy.

    The Dow lost 2.73 percent within the past week while the S&P 500 was down 3.12 percent and NASDAQ down 4.44 percent.

    You know that I have not sold any of my stockholdings. I'm not a fearful investor who sells his wonderful businesses and cash-in some money, pay taxes and waiting for new opportunities.

    I like to make money with stocks by holding them over a decade or more. Only over a long period of time, companies can create value.

    I keep my eyes on new targets which were very rare in the past because American stocks are some of the most expensive companies in the whole world but they offer also the biggest insurance for investors.

    Many oil- and gas pipeline companies are part of the dividend growers list. Those companies have experienced a big boom by creating energy infrastructure but they have also high debt figures, comparable with REITs or Telecoms.

    Below are my five favorites from the week. I hope you like my selection. I personally own only KFT and KMB, both are consumer giants.

    Compared to the dividend growth results of the past week, the number of stocks is still weak.

    My 5 Favorite Dividend Growth And Share Buybacker of the Week are...

    #1 Kraft Foods Group (NASDAQ:KRFT) has a market capitalization of $32.98 billion. The company employs 22,500 people, generates revenue of $18.218 billion and has a net income of $2.715 billion.

    Financials: The total debt represents 43.11 percent of Kraft Foods Group's assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 192.40 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 61.72 percent was realized by Kraft Foods Group.

    Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $4.03. Last fiscal year, Kraft Foods Group paid $2.05 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

  • 7 Top Dividend Growth And Share Buyback Stocks Of The Week

    As you might have noticed, my blog covers dividend growth stocks and companies with fresh stock buyback announcements.

    It's not a real investment strategy but both are activities for investors.

    You can find each week a list of all dividend growth stocks and share buyback companies on this site. It's the only source who compiles this on the internet.

    Within the past week, only eight companies raised their dividend payments and additional nine stocks announced a stock buyback program.

    Both are shareholder-friendly activities which could be helpful for normal investors like me and you.
