I believe it is rally time for the dividend portfolio! The weather is warming up and the appetite is getting anxious to scoop up dividend stocks for the cupboard, that is my portfolio. The goals are high and the dividend income forward projection is begging to be pushed, just a little bit further. I say bring on April and let’s see what’s currently on the radar!
DowDuPont’s revenue reached $86 billion in 2018, crushing 2017 totals by $79.5 billion (pro forma figures).
Earnings per share for DowDuPont up 40%, from $1.18 per share (pro forma) to $1.66, from 2017 to 2018.
In the last quarter of 2018, cash flow from operations showed almost a 25% growth from the last quarter of 2017, a preview of expectations for 2019.
As Christmas is approaching, the sounds of the music rings in that the year is almost over. I am still sitting on a sizable cash position that I am looking to deploy into an undervalued dividend stock – the one with the right metrics, that shows undervaluation, is performing better than the past, etc. Furthermore, there are investors who have capital built up, including myself, and I never like to let cash sit idle. Given this, I am constantly trying to find the right company, to invest my money, to gain value and build a dividend income stream. In my attempt to find a consumer-based company, one that will generate significant volume and revenue when economic times are good and bad, I turned to an iconic branded company. This iconic branded company has been around for 130+ years and is also coined as one of the, “Dividend Aristocrats”, having increased their dividend for 25+ years. In fact, this iconic company has delivered a streak of 55+ years of increasing their dividend. Yes, I am talking about The Coca-Cola Company (KO).
Here we go! The final two months of stock market action for 2018 and it wouldn’t be the same without releasing what is currently on my radar, at the moment. A few easy one’s that most are looking at, right now, but hopefully a fresh new look at a company or two, in the mix. I know the stock market has been significantly all over the place, what an investor still can do is evaluate a company based on their financial statements and stock price and make a decision to buy or not to buy. Always remember, price is what you pay and value is what you get. I have been saying that to so many people lately, they think I’m crazy. Without further-ado here is my November dividend stock watch list!
Weather is heating up and it’s time to put on the spectacles for the dividend stock watch list. I feel like I have been on the side lines for such a long time, not having purchased a stock in weeks. Over Memorial Day Weekend, I was able to take time aside and really focus on the quality of stocks that are out there. As others know, I came to find out that there are many opportunities out there for us and it is such a hard decision when it comes to which one to add, to the dividend portfolio. Bert comes out with his expected dividend increase articles, others are buying stocks on the daily, it seems, and you know what, it’s time for me to see what sights I should be set on. Without further-ado, here are my dividend stocks I am watching for June!
The market is actually down now, year-to-date. Luckily, it’s not just one company here or there, that is bringing the whole ship south. Instead, there are a vast number of companies that are seeing their price movements turn downward, unlocking value in the market place. As dividend investors, this is news that we all love to see. When there are macro-events in the economy, such as tariffs, trade wars, interest rate movements and technology enhancements – this usually leads me to go into one direction, when evaluating what dividend stock to buy. The industry that has shown signs of value, for the price, is the consumer industry! I want to do a comparison of a few stocks within that industry.
