UPS' Dividend Outlook Isn't So Rosy

Image credit UPS (NYSE: UPS) has continued to rely upon its capital returns for shareholders as a way to compensate for a stock price that is right in the same area it was two years ago. The company's dividend has continued to grow nicely over time and at present, the stock yields in excess of 3%. That's a nice yield for certain but UPS also buys back a lot of stock. That raises the question: with the dividend such a substantial piece of the total return puzzle and buybacks eating... Read more

United Parcel Service Makes A Good Dividend Pick

United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS), better known as UPS, looks like it could be a very attractive dividend stock and one we are considering for our dividend portfolio. The stock currently sports a healthy 3.12% dividend yield and trades at only 16 times forward earnings (the current P/E ratio is high due to a pension accounting charge this year). What makes UPS attractive is that it offers dividend (or really any) investors a cheap way to play the shift to online retail. Investors that want... Read more

New 'Safer' Dow Transportation Dividend Dogs: Upsides, Yields & Gains Projections For March

January/February Dividend Income Update

Quite often we hear about people benchmarking their portfolio's returns to those of the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA: SPY), or the sector/industry that they specialize in, or against a strategy specific ETF (like the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (NYSEARCA: VIG) for DGIers, for instance) to gauge the success of their performance over set periods of time. I think there's a lot of validity to these benchmark checks. If you've got a long-term investing horizon and one of the major... Read more

Note that only companies with a market cap of $2B+ are included, as the list of... Read more

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

4 Companies With Recent Dividend Increases: Review Using Dividend Safety Model - February 2017, Part-2

Dividend Challengers (And Near-Challengers): 124 Increases Expected By March 31

In compiling the Dividend Champions list (found here), I get to see which companies are nearing the anniversaries of their previous dividend increases. Since most of these firms raise their payout about the same time every year, I can say with some confidence that they are likely to do so again. I have separated the Champions (25 or more years of higher dividends), Contenders (10-24 years), and Challengers (5-9 years) into distinct groupings, so please look for the other articles, which I hope...

Why Are We So Clueless About the Stock Market?

Most people work hard for their money, and it is sad to see them lose it so quickly in the stock market. They assume that because they are successful in their careers or businesses, they will be successful in investing.
A successful investor does not need an advanced degree in economics. He or she does not even need to be that smart. A successful investor only needs two things: 1) capital to invest and 2) the ability to recognize good companies when they are selling for less than what they are worth.
This book teaches investors how to recognize good companies, evaluate their current worth, decrease the chances of making investment mistakes, take advantage of Wall Street's short-sightedness, build wealth through stock market investing ... and much more.
