  • We start out with a short list of guidelines that make it easier to identify dividend stocks that are still worth investing in right now.
  • The popularity of large cap dividend growth stocks has driven their valuations to worrisome levels. Only a handful of large Cap dividend stocks are still worth considering.
  • We look at my recent large cap conviction buys, the stocks I hold that are still worth buying, and one riskier dividend stock purchase I have high hopes for.
  • Screening the Nasdaq Dividend Achievers Index turned up some lesser-known small and mid-cap dividend growth stocks worth considering because of their enhanced potential for both earnings and dividend growth.

Though I have done quite a few different things over the course of a long life, I am best known as a writer of bestselling books about business and health. My success has come because I am a very curious person who doesn't just follow the herd and trust whatever the experts tell us to believe. I do my own research. I collect the facts, look at them objectively, and draw my own conclusions. Over the years, I have been amazed at how much of what everybody "knows to be true" is based on poorly designed studies, many of them impossible to replicate. I approach Investing with the same open mind, challenging the orthodoxies that attract the herd, studying how things really work, and doing my best to come up with an approach, based on facts, that works for me and would appeal to those who find thinking worthwhile.

Following. Super article! Gerry in Oregon with rain in the forecast!
Good article. I still like T as my best investment,(their past screw ups aside), because the moves they are in process of make me think they finally put together a great deal. DISCK is my second best. I like ABBV, even though it is getting expensive. Also, like O, but for now will hold cash for a couple of months. This whole market is looking expensive. p. s. , also like BRK/B. GLTA

Great article, thank you. I disagree with you on WSM and am long the stock. I think Laura Alber is an absolute rock star CEO who is building the company into an e-commerce powerhouse with brand strength and loyalty akin to AAPL or NKE.

For a great small cap DGI opportunity, take a look at JOUT.

Long AAPL, BAC, BRK-B, HD, V and WSM.

Excellent article!!! I am looking to purchase whirlpool
Whirlpool benefits from the floods, wildfires, hurricanes etc. that are occurring frequently, causing appliance replacement sales to increase. Unfortunately, the homeowner is not the beneficiary, however. Neither is the insurance company.

@southbuckeye I learned that the hard way, having bought ALL when it looked well-valued, only to have the huge surge in used car and parts prices devastated their margins. Sold it for a tax loss.
