A couple weeks ago, I showed you how to zero in on something every investor longs for: growth at a reasonable price. These days, it’s a tall order. With the S&P 500 back near breakeven after this winter’s flame-out, valuations are again ticking higher.

But no matter where the broader market’s headed, there are always top-quality dividend payers on sale. The key is to comb through unloved sectors and tease out strong businesses that have been tossed out with the laggards. Here are two examples of companies investors have (unfairly) punished: JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) and Union Pacific Corporation (UNP)

One knock on dividend stocks is that they'll falter if interest rates turn up. Stocks bought mainly for their payouts become less attractive than bonds as rates climb, the argument goes, so the share prices must come down to bring their yields closer in line with those of fixed-income investments. And high-yield stocks tend to be more sensitive to that effect. But with the economy looking feeble, rates aren't likely to rise much this year.

We chose five firms that are steadily boosting earnings and dividends along the way, measures that should help lift their stock prices, along with two high-yield stocks that seem worth the extra risk: AT&T (T), Automatic Data Processing (ADP), Cisco Systems (CSCO), Kraft Heinz (KHC), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Pfizer (PFE) and Welltower (HCN).

Have you ever noticed those that most vehemently attack a buy-and-hold strategy really don’t understand how the strategy works? They confuse a buy-and-hold strategy with day-trading with a longer duration. A true implementation of buy-and-hold includes a focus on blue-chip stocks with a sustainable advantage, along with a reasonable asset allocation framework. One sign of a blue-chip stock is a long string of dividend increases.

Below are several companies that have recently raised the bar by increasing their cash dividends...

5 Dividend Stocks Starting a Multi-Decade Bull Market

Posted by D4L | Saturday, April 30, 2016 | 0 comments »

There are 77 million Baby Boomers that make up 28% of the U.S. population. Any companies that make products they buy are usually doing great. This massive generation made baby products makers rich in the 1950s, and homebuilders rich in the 1990s and 2000s.

Now, they’re transitioning their spending again. There are 10,000 boomers hitting retirement age every day. Over the past two years, more than 3 million each year have turned 65.

This wave of new retirees will continue to grow every day, every year, for the next couple of decades (at least). What do 65+ folks spend money on? Medical care and living arrangements, for starters. Let’s talk about five (actually six) companies poised to rake in big business in these markets from boomer spending: Gilead Sciences, Inc. (GILD), CVS Health Corp (CVS), Sun Communities Inc. (SUI) and Service Corporation International (SCI).

Investors who buy a broad index fund right now -- for example, the Vanguard Total Stock Market Fund -- will earn a dividend yield that's very close to the overall market's 2%. While that's far better than you could do with money market funds or bank deposits, it's not a particularly exciting payout.

The good news is that there are plenty of stocks yielding double that annual rate, and even if a market-thumping yield often involves some trade-offs, income investors don't have to give up profit or sales growth potential to achieve a 4% dividend yield. With that in mind, here are three growing businesses with hefty dividend payouts that you might consider adding to your watchlist: Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN), Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT), and GameStop (NYSE:GME).
