Ge Dividend Payments

Compare the dividend stocks in the Dogs of the Dow index by dividend yield, payout ratio, Price/Earnings, earnings per share (EPS), dividend per share (DPS).

The Dogs of the Dow, also called High Yield 10, is an investment strategy popularized in 1991 by Michael O'Higgins. It proposes that an investor annually selects the 10 Dow Jones Industrial Average stocks whose dividend is the highest fraction of their price.


Beware of stocks with an extremely high dividend yield! This can be caused by a stock price that is extremely low, compared to the trailing twelve months (ttm) dividend. Or it can be caused by a special, one-time only super dividend.

Lanny's October Dividend Income Summary

Wow… October is over, isn't it? World Series baseball has SPIKED and our beloved Cleveland Indians tried their best to make some history vs. the Cubs. What a great way to end October and intro to November! The cold and warm weather also keep battling on who is getting the last laugh, as it has swung from 75 to 50, and back to 75 a few times over the last week. However, we all know that the cold always wins towards the end of the year here in Ohio. Enough about baseball and weather,... Read more

Dividend Raises And Cuts For October 2016

Dividend growth investing is a popular model followed by the investing community to build assets.

As part of my due diligence, I closely monitor all companies that raise dividends (or cut them) and this article shares the dividend amount changes announced by companies. Note that only companies with a... Read more

Asian Dividend Plays For Growth And Income

I've been focusing on pan-Asian stocks in some way or another my entire career. Investors seem to understand the growth opportunity that many Asian markets possess, but have often shunned them for a variety of reasons. Whether those reasons are confusion regarding the local market, more prevalent fraud, or troubles gaining access to Asian markets, there always seems to be a reason Asia can be avoided. For the most part, it has paid off, as U.S. domestic companies, by most accounts, have... Read more

5%+ Dividend Yield Portfolio: Nearly Doubling The S&P 500 Return In 2016 (October 2016 Review)

Review and Outlook As predicted, October brought some light volatility and weakness as the nastiest presidential campaign in recent memory took buyers' conviction away. Just like in July... and August... and September... October delivered a nothing sandwich returns-wise (for 80 straight days, the S&P 500 has closed in the 2100s). As long as the ballot box delivers the generally expected result next week (a Clinton presidency with the GOP retaining at least retaining the House)... Read more

October Update: Dividend Growth Portfolio Is Up Almost 8% For The Year

Halloween is (sadly) over and that means the month of October has come to an end. As in the past, I like to check in on my wife and I's retirement accounts at the conclusion of each month. Our portfolio consists of our Roth IRAs, 403b accounts through work and share builder programs. Our 403b consist of several funds, but the bulk of our retirement accounts are held in IRAs and share builder accounts. We focus on high quality dividend paying stocks as we will be living off of the income... Read more

Sconnie's Dividend Portfolio Review No. 2

Current State: As you can see from embedded spreadsheet below, my portfolio lost value overall for the last month. This included dividend reinvestment and an additional purchase of AT&T (NYSE: T) on October 5th. Obviously no one likes to see their portfolio decline, but I have no plans to sell at this point so this is merely a paper loss. I will take continued weakness as an opportunity to buy more shares. During the month of October I received $287 of dividends, with the lion's... Read more

Predictions For 17 Dividend Growth Companies Announcing Increases In November

As part of my research into dividend growth stocks, I track the dividend payouts for the components of the S&P High Yield Dividend Aristocrats index. This index consists of stocks that are part of the S&P 1500 index - that's the combination of the S&P 500, S&P Mid Cap 400 and the S&P Small Cap 600 indices - that have increased their regular dividends each year for the last 20 years. Like I did last month, I'm also including predictions for other companies with... Read more
