  • Kinder Morgan Inc Is Doing Exactly What I Bought It To Do [View article]
    Slick,

    "My investment is yielding more new shares per quarter than it previously did."

    I understand that you mean "providing" in your use of the word "yielding" but to most of us "yield" or dividend yield" commonly refers to how much a company pays out in dividends each year relative to its share price or "yield = annual dividends per share/price per share" which is expressed in a percentage.

  • Surprise! Cash Invades The Dividend Growth 50 [View article]
    Bob,

    "What are some additional companies you would recommend I look at?"

    I haven't looked at their valuations lately but ones I like and have in my core holdings: TD, RY, TU, ENB, BIP & UL.

    Sorry to hear of your "ailment". Hope you get over it or you're able to get the right meds!

    ETN may be a great company but they're based in Ireland and withhold 20% on the dividends.

  • The Right Reason To Buy Into Vanguard's Classic Dividend Strategy [View article]
    Joao,

    Neither VYM nor VOO have very long track records to compare total returns. VYM inception was in late 2006 and VOO in late 2010. If we compare the returns from the inception date of VOO in 2010/09/09 via longrundata.com VOO edges out VYM by a small margin:
    VOO = 16.72%
    VYM = 16.51%
    The margin is greater over a 3 year period:
    VOO = 18.42%
    VYM = 15.82%

    Bob,

    "With so many sectors currently market sensitive what's an income loving retiree to do?"

    You could get a lot of bang for your buck (strong $USD) with Intl stocks.

    Scott,

    Re: RY vs XOM
    If you compare current yield vs 5-Yr avg yield RY is undervalued by 10.5% while XOM is undervalued by 36%. The crux is what will happen going forward. I have a feeling the oil price will be down for quite some time, especially with Iran back in the picture. Tough call here.

  • Dividends & Income Digest: Once Interest Rates Rise, What Happens To Dividend Growth Stocks? [View article]
    surf,

    "hmm so what is the term for seeking both high yield and DGI- I prefer smart, but think you may differ."

    I don't think there is a term for it but it is a blended strategy that many follow to some degree. You can call it smart or whatever you like if it works for you and meets your goals. I have dabbled with speculative higher yielding stocks in the past but didn't like the volatility or predictability of the income. They now make up a very small portion of my overall portfolio.

  • Dividends & Income Digest: Once Interest Rates Rise, What Happens To Dividend Growth Stocks? [View article]
    Emerging Investor,

    While there are many "dividend investors" out there "dividend growth investors" make up less than 4% of the marketplace. Very few advisors understand or follow DGI so it doesn't surprise me that the Google search engine can't decipher the difference either. My connotation of "dividend investing or yield chasing" is investing in dividend stocks with yield being of primary importance. That said, no two investors are exactly alike and many do not follow a strategy religiously so there can be overlap between the "dividend investing" and "dividend growth investing" strategies.

    "Recently, people love Energy stocks for the same reason."

    Perhaps some "love" energy stocks but most love stocks showing value.

    During the great recession I had one financial (ING) and another pseudo-financial (GE) experience dividend cuts. I was fortunate to not own any US banks. I did own 2 Canadian banks then, 3 now, which froze but didn't cut. None of the Cdn banks cut their dividends.

    Further to my comment above...

    I forgot to include the Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP)

    Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) = -30.57%

  • The Payout Ratio Is Overrated For Dividend Growth Investors [View article]
    "Of course, I can't predict the future, but I bet the odds are much greater that dividends will keep going up than that prices will keep going up."

    My portfolio dividend income increased during and after the worst recession in 70 years. I see little reason for my portfolio income to decrease going forward.

    "Seeking Dividends" is all about chasing yield and has nothing to do with investing primarily for dividend growth or DGI.

    "Mike, I agree with what you wrote, but as you already know, CD's do not have "dividend growth"."

    (1) Dividend growth stocks typically raise their dividends at a greater rate than the inflation rate
    (2) CD interest rates will always be lower than inflation rates.
    (3) Dividends are taxed more advantageously than interest bearing investments.
    (4) There may be safety from a loss with a CD but there is no chance for a capital gain.
