Articles featuring Dividend Aristocrat At&t (T):

AT&T: Dividend Review

AT&T (NYSE: T) has provided income investors with consistent dividend growth for over 30 years. The telecom giant, yielding 4.7%, has provided investors with a rather stable 52-week trading range and is currently 6% higher than a year ago. While three plus decades of dividend sustainability is certainly a credible metric for future outlook, it is wise for investors to examine the company's operating performance for risks to the dividend. AT&T's payout ratio is one key... Read more

Dividends And Compounding Returns

I have written two recent articles on fascinating, recently published academic research. In my article "Why Many Investors Fail", I described research that showed that the equity risk premium in the United States has been historically attributable to only a small number of stocks whose outstanding performance skewed average returns higher. In "Dividends and Stock Crashes," I described research that showed that dividend-paying stocks are less prone to large stock price... Read more

AT&T: Is The High Yield Worth The Stagnant Stock Price?

Overview In this article, I will be reviewing AT&T (NYSE: T) to determine if it is currently a good investment option for long term dividend growth investors. AT&T is a Dividend Aristocrat that has been increasing its dividend yearly since 1985. It is also the highest yielding aristocrat with a current dividend yield of 4.65%. AT&T has been a pretty good performing stock overall, but looking at the chart below, you can see that its stock price appreciation has been fairly... Read more

Yes, You Can Still Build A 4% Yielding Portfolio In Today's Market, Part II

Last April I presented a mock portfolio with a 4% yield to show that an income portfolio could still be built in an expensive market. Nearly a year later, the market continues to trade near all-time highs, leaving some investors once again wondering if the time is right to put more cash into investments. This article will take a look back at those picks to see what they are worth today, and also see how much income they are producing. It will also present a new dividend growth portfolio... Read more

Thanks For The 8% Raise, Dividend Growth 50!

The month just completed was quite an eventful one for yours truly. In a March 14 article, I told about my daughter Katie getting engaged, with her boyfriend popping the question while they were scuba diving in the waters off of Hawaii. Incredibly, 10 days later, my son Ben proposed to his girlfriend ... and she said yes. The incredible part wasn't that Sammi said yes - Ben, after all, is a heck of a catch (and vice versa)! It was that two siblings announced two engagements less... Read more

The Slowly, But Surely Dividend Income Portfolio - March 2017 Update

Another month up, another month down. It seems as though, as Steve Miller Band wrote several decades ago, time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future. While we don't know what the future is going to hold, it's a fool's errand to do nothing to plan for it. If the entire world financial system collapses and we're bartering eggs for cloth in 30 years, everybody will pretty much be in the same boat, and humanity will adapt. The above is not a terribly...

March Portfolio Update: Our Dividend Growth Portfolio Powers Higher

I love the month of March. March is usually the month where the weather starts to improve. The grass is turning green. The sun shines more and snow and cold weather are usually in the rearview mirror. As a sports fan, there's spring training baseball and the NCAA basketball tournament. Professional hockey and basketball leagues are heading towards the playoffs. Being a teacher, spring break is less than a week away. All in all, this is one of my favorite times of the year. This time around,... Read more

AT&T: The King Of All Dividend Stocks

Image Source: New York Times AT&T (NYSE: T) is one of those stocks that can be the anchor of any diversified portfolio. I put them in the same class as other blue-chip stocks like Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO). AT&T is a consistent performer, recession resilient, and rewards shareholders with a whopping dividend (current yield of 4.69%). The recent DirecTV acquisition and pending Time Warner (NYSE: TWX) acquisition will allow... Read more

AT&T Declares Quarterly Dividend

The board of directors of AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.49 a share on the company’s common shares. The dividend is payable on May 1, 2017, to stockholders of record at the close of business on April 10, 2017.... Read more

AT&T's Massive Acquisitions Are Taking Their Toll On The Dividend

Photo credit AT&T (NYSE: T) is certainly a stock that people buy for the capital returns. After all, what good is a utility without a sizable dividend yield? The thing is that T has, in the past, done sizable capital returns via the other method - buybacks - and with some success. The seemingly constant big mergers that are occurring these days for T, however, have made it such that it cannot do buybacks as it once did. And as a result, I'm wondering aloud if T wouldn't be...
