  • 7 Dividend Achievers Good Enough To Buy And 10 To Watch

    This week I've screened all Dividend Achievers by cheap fundamentals, solid growth figures and low dividend payouts.

    Dividend Achievers are stocks that have raised dividends over a period of 10 consecutive years or more.

    These are my criteria in detail:

    - Dividend Yield over 2 percent

    - Dividend Payout below 40 percent

    - Expected 5-Year Earnings Growth over 5 percent

    - Forward P/E under 15

    - Only Large Caps

    - 10 Years of consecutive dividend growth or more

    My screen delivered me 17 results. The best yielding results come from the oil and gas sector. Those stocks suffered under falling oil and gas prices. Russian crises and recession fears in Europe are main forces to the cheap fundamentals.

    I'm a guy who believes in technology, old school technology. IBM is a top pick in my view. For sure IBM did not grow over the past decade but they have a strong focus on profit and shareholder return. Earnings doubled and due to massive buybacks, EPS skyrocket.

    IBM is no island in a raw sea. It's only a big company with a strong cash flow and they must pay attention to the competition.

    Here are 7 Dividend Achievers with cheap fundamentals from seven different sectors. A good and broad diversification is good for most investors because they can reduce your portfolio volatility.

    7 cheap top yielding Dividend Achievers are....

  • 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.

    Below is a detailed overview of my favorite stocks from the past week who gave investors more money.

    #1 Kinder Morgan Energy (NYSE:KMP) has a market capitalization of $41.64 billion. The company employs 11,075 people, generates revenue of $12.530 billion and has a net income of $3.321 billion.

    Kinder Morgan Energy's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $4.684 billion. The EBITDA margin is 37.38 percent (the operating margin is 25.77 percent and the net profit margin 26.50 percent).

    Financials: The total debt represents 49.41 percent of Kinder Morgan Energy's assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 125.75 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 14.14 percent was realized by Kinder Morgan Energy.

    Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $2.52. Last fiscal year, Kinder Morgan Energy paid $5.26 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

    Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 35.73, the P/S ratio is 3.31 and the P/B ratio is finally 2.91. The dividend yield amounts to 6.23 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 0.54. See #2 until #35 here: 35 Companies To Pay More Cash For Its Owners...

  • 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.

    Kraft Foods Group's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $5,266.00 million. The EBITDA margin is 28.91 percent (the operating margin is 25.20 percent and the net profit margin 14.90 percent).

    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.
