  • Dow Chemical: 4% Yield And Improving Earnings Prospects [View article]
    I bought DOW in the single digits during the Great recession and have loved the increased dividend and capital appreciation since. As long as it keeps increasing its dividend every year and keeping its turn around going I will keep it in my portfolio.

  • Dividend Growth Strategies For Younger Investors - Part 2 [View article]
    Nice article. I consider myself a dividend growth investor and have a core of 25 stocks . I started in May 2008 maxing out me and my wife's Roth IRA's and have always added some positions in lower yielding stocks if the value is there.I got V years ago around 65ish because I believed in its growth and added YUM recently when the China chicken scare happened, both have been growing there dividend yearly .I believe it is good to have lower yielding stock in the mix to add to your core holdings.One never knows if these stocks will be 3% yielder one day.
    I also own some DIS for sentimental reasons.(My families favorite vacation spot).

JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman is raining on the PEP-MDLZ speculation parade a bit, saying the companies wouldn't blend together neatly and that a deal could raise anti-trust issues. [View news story]
    The stake Peltz took is only a good thing,merger or not.Look at his track record.
