  • 3 United Dividend Kings To Buy

    As you might know, I love stocks that increase dividends, not because I'm an event driven investor, but because I love it to see that the company has a good running operational business and wants to share its success with their shareholders.

    The tweet came from a Guy named @UKDividendKings. I check out his site and saw his impressing work. He compiled all stocks from the FTSE 350 with more than 10 consecutive years of dividend growth in a list.

    Check out the list here...42 UK Dividend Kings

    For sure, I never thought that there were so many companies with a long history of consecutive dividend growth. I knew that the American market offers around 500 or a few companies but 41 in the UK?

    Well, back to the list, I love the overview with dividend cover ratio and picked a few companies that I personally like or I often hear from.

    Tesco is not on the list but pays one of the highest yields but the market rumors that Tesco will cut future dividends. There are also rumors about Vodafone's dividend safeness.

    The list shows a dividend cover ratio of 1.59.

  • 8 Worst Performing Dividend Grower Of The Year - A Great Chance For Investors?

    I like it when stocks fall because they become cheaper. That's the reason why I always look at companies with a really bad stock performance.

    I personally don't care about analysts and lead investors who are sometimes anxious about the future of the company. In other cases, they need to justify their portfolio risk.

    I love it to see bad performing dividend stocks with a very long history of solid growing dividends, especially when the future outlook is still bright.

    Below I've highlighted some of the worst performing and most disliked dividend growth stocks on the market with a negative 1-Year performance. They all got low forward P/E and yields over 3 percent.

    What do you think, are they underestimated by the market?

    Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL) has a market capitalization of $17.22 Billion. The company employs 8,965 people, generates revenue of $5.282 billion and has a net income of $2.786 billion.

Last fiscal year, Seadrill paid $3.72 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

    Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 3.40, the P/S ratio is 3.18 and the P/B ratio is finally 2.29. The dividend yield amounts to 10.90 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 1.78.

    Philip Morris (NYSE:PM) has a market capitalization of $131.19 Billion. The company employs 91,100 people, generates revenue of $31.217 billion and has a net income of $8.872 billion.
