  • 3 Reasons You Want to Own Wal-Mart for the Next 30 Years [View article]
    Having had some more time to think over a WMT purchase, and in light of some of the astute comments above, I think that grabbing it around $50 (lower would be great) would be a nice. I've done some add'l DD on it, and I think that the worst case scenario over the next couple of decades is that it's pps continues to be range bound, but that DGR continues (and the payout ratio rises-albeit slowly) to be the most attractive quality of the stock. Basically, nabbing it at or near the low end of its trading range, add if it returns there, reinvest those divvies, and enjoy a double digit YoC in 10 years or so. To me, this is the most likely scenario. They'll probably eek out some growth here and there, but Chinese labor won't be cheap forever.

  • Chevron: A Dividend Pick for the Next 5 Years [View article]
    Long COP at $72, but would love to start a position in CVX. I think we may see it in the early to middle $90s before the summer's over-MAYBE... if the market takes a dive, perhaps in dreaded October. Gotta love that DGR :)

  • Bernanke on Why QE2 Didn't Hurt the Economy - and Why He's Wrong [View article]
    <the primary objective of monetary policy in the United States should be to promote economic growth and price stability at home, which in turn supports a stable global economic and financial environment.”>

    How can he truly stand behind the above and pretend that being able to borrow $USDs for basically nothing doesn't affect economies (not to mention commodities) world wide??

    Well put cpa28761. Keep up the good work.

    All the DGR discussion of PG on these boards has gotten me to change the way I think about the co. Now, I'm looking to start a position in it.

  • Intel: An Ideal Value Investment [View article]
    I don't really care about growth (to an extent) or book value. I'm in it for the DG going into the future and establishing a YoC that doubles or triples my yield in 10 years (at most). If it turns out INTC is slowing down and becoming a solid (and higher) div payer with a growing yield (and a great low payout ratio), then I'm ecstatic. With tech such a fickle sector and longer term growth (esp in the decade we're currently mired in) a real roll of the dice, I'll take my (growing) dividends, reinvest them, and be more than happy getting paid.

    MostSerene1 and Amateur Investor:

    If you have some time on your side, do some research on Dividend Growth and Yield on Cost (YoC). Having some vision further into the future of what you'd like your yields to be in 5 or 10 years would very likely push your yields (with the right stocks of course) into double digits for those time frames (and beyond) and make 4 or 5% look meager.

  • Top Dividend Stocks With High Dividend Growth Rates [View article]

    IM: You compile this list but hold only T. Interesting. One can find better DGRs elsewhere w/out the K-1 hassles with a little diligence. Heck, just check out a handful of Tweedn's posts.

    PM for sure. Yes to SDRL, but better to wait 'til the dollar rally peters out b4 initiating a position. Should be able to get it in the high 20s before the end of the summer imo.

  • 17 High Dividend Energy Stocks With Strong Growth [View article]
    If TGP were to continue the pace of 10% DG over the next 10 years, and its payout were to stay the same, you would be receiving a yield of over 14% after 10 years of holding and reinvesting dividends. Not too shabby.

    Disc: Hold none of the above, but under the above scenario, TGP would be a nice hold :)

  • Dividend Kings: 8 High-Yielders for the Summer Market [View article]
    Also, in the top half of the INTC article, we have the yield at 3.22%. In the bottom half it's ballooned to a 'large' 3.93% div. I realize some articles on INTC have not included the upcoming bump to .21 cents, but can IU decide on which one it is and stay consistent??

  • 4 Secrets to Finding the Best Dividend Stocks (And 7 to Consider) [View article]
    Great article with great info!! Thanks D4L.

    I picked up INTC last week, and WAG and LOW look intriguing as possible candidates with a lot of room to grow their divvies.

    Again, great info-always appreciated. Nice to know you're an account. Gives readers insight that they wouldn't normally receive in an investment article.
