Dividend Trading Nasdaq

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.

Retirees: How To Generate The Income You Need From A Dividend Portfolio

My paid subscribers have asked me to write about ideas on creating a dividend portfolio for retirement. I decided to focus on the topic of generating the income needed for retirement for this article. In this article, I assume you're at or near retirement. And I'll use examples to illustrate different scenarios. Ultimately, most retirees want safe income -- cash they can use every day to pay the bills and enjoy life. So, the goal of a retirement stock portfolio is to... Read more

Tending The Dividend Garden - March Update

As I wrote previously in Tending the Dividend Garden - January Update I like to think of building my stock portfolio the same way I would think about planting my garden. I see a lot of similarities between gardening and investing in dividend paying stocks. They both require a lot of work and patience up front, but when done correctly, can provide a great return. I like the idea of grouping stocks based on their yield and dividend growth rate (DGR) into comparable crops from my garden. As a... Read more

Verizon: Dividend Sustainable, But Business Shrinking

Company Introduction Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) is a telecommunication services company which has revenues shrinking in recent quarters although its current cash flow are still respectable. While the company is a historically a blue chip in the telecoms industry, investors should stay away from Verizon shares or only purchase on significant further weakness for its dividend. As an alternative, take a look at AT&T (NYSE: T) for exposure to the telecommunications sector... Read more

5%+ Dividend Yield Portfolio: New Rules For FOMO (February 2017 Review)

Outlook As regular readers know, my crystal ball is cloudy at best. However, since the election, my prognostication skills have been particularly poor as the 'animal spirits' of the market have been ignited in a way that has truly perplexed me. Sure, I am glad that my portfolio is up in 2017 and up almost 20% in the trailing 12 months (and my dividend stream is more solid than ever), but it is hard to not suffer from FOMO ("fear of missing out") when the market is up 14%...

Can 20 Financial Ratios Be Used To Find Dividend Growth Companies That Outperform The Market?

INTRODUCTION As do-it-yourself investors, we all seek to pick the right companies to ensure a better financial future. I had attempted to use 20 financial ratios to measure a company's moat. This exercise has not proven to have had the immediate results I had hoped for. But from this effort, SA member Fernando Soriano made the comment in one of my articles that when he back tested the top scoring stocks using my moat rating system, he found that they had outperformed the market. I am... Read more

Retire On Dividends: Can You Still Build A High Yield Portfolio For Retirement?

Investors looking for a solid yield for retirement are stuck in a terrible situation. While bond yields moved significantly higher, the equity market has rallied to the extent that there are far fewer compelling options. The growth in valuations is significantly disconnected from growth in the economy. GDP growth remains low and several securities that frequently trade on some multiple of book value (usually less than 1.0x) are now trading at much higher than normal valuations. This is a very...

Fourth Portfolio Review - 'The Accelerated Dividend Portfolio'

Strategy - Over two years ago I started to think about income streams I'll want for retirement and undertook a plan of building a "starter" dividend portfolio in my Fidelity 401(k) account. - Used 30% of my 401(k) balance to build my dividend portfolio with the anticipation of gaining greater knowledge and wisdom ahead of going "all in" down the road. - Attempting to quickly build my portfolio with high-quality, high-yielding dividend companies and then...

A Dividend Portfolio Built From The World's Best Dividend ETFs

Since my first article using the pseudonym ETF Monkey was published on Seeking Alpha on June 3, 2015, my main focus has been to demonstrate that it is possible for almost anyone to harness the power of ETFs to build low-cost, diversified portfolios that allow them to access the power of financial markets without incurring hefty, ongoing fees for financial "advice." At the same time, I have read many great articles both here and on other sites with respect to building great... Read more

2 Blue-Chip Dividend Growth Stocks On Sale

Introduction The stock market continues higher and higher, seemingly unabated. Valuations have become stretched - are there any values still remaining? I contend there are, and I would like to highlight two of them. As individual stock pickers, it is imperative that we select our equities carefully. We must be mindful of the business arena in which the company operates, its business fundamentals and prospects. After deciding that a business is worth investment dollars, it is then... Read more

Verizon: Dividend King

There's a great deal of pessimism surrounding Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and in my view that's a good thing. The only way you can acquire assets that are on sale is when other investors eschew the name for any number of reasons related to competition, lack of growth or a host of other issues. I think Verizon is a well run, shareholder friendly firm that is years if not decades away from redundancy. There might be some bumps along the road, but this valuation and this yield are too much to... Read more
