Dividend Contenders Smackdown XL – Seeking Alpha

Dividend Contenders Smackdown XL – Seeking Alpha: Dividend Contenders Smackdown XL

In the most recent installments of the Smackdown series, I screened the Dividend Champions (which can be found here: http://dripinvesting.org/Tools/Tools.asp ) by high Dividend Growth and Estimated 5-year Earnings per Share Growth (using a 6% threshold for both) and, last month, by the Past 5 Years of Earnings per Share Growth and the 5-year Dividend Growth Rate.

(Note that I have separated the Champions, Contenders, and Challengers into different articles to fit more closely into the format preferred by Seeking Alpha. Champions are companies that have paid higher dividends for at least 25 straight years; Contenders have streaks of 10-24 years; Challengers have streaks of 5-9 years. “CCC” refers to the combination of all three groups. I use the same Roman numeral for all three articles.)

Dividend Contenders: 13 Increases Expected By The End Of July – Seeking Alpha

Dividend Contenders: 13 Increases Expected By The End Of July – Seeking Alpha: In compiling the Dividend Champions list (found here: http://dripinvesting.org/Tools/Tools.asp) 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 modified the Expected Increase series to reflect a more SA-friendly format by separating 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.

2013 ‘Pure-Bred’ Dividend Contender Dogs – Seeking Alpha

2013 ‘Pure-Bred’ Dividend Contender Dogs – Seeking Alpha: Introduction

One of the most popular – albeit simplistic – approaches to stock screening is the well known “Dogs of the Dow” strategy that simply picks the 10 highest yielding stocks from the Dow Jones Industrial Average at the start of the year and holds them until the end of the year. Although it had already been around for decades, it was highlighted in the book Beating the Dow by Michael B. O’Higgins and John Downes in 1991 and even has its own web site at http://www.dogsofthedow.com/
