3 Cheap Dividend Stocks Under $10

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, September 30, 2014 | | 0 comments »

As long as high-yield dividend stocks exist, so will believers in the dividend, as well as skeptics who think the dividend is high for a reason. And as long as there are cheap stocks, there will be believers that they are values, and skeptics who think they are cheap for a reason. Our job as investors is to not be swayed by a cheap dividend stock just because it’s cheap or has a high dividend, but to assess why it is cheap and why the dividend is high — and whether it would make a good fit in our portfolio.

Of course, this depends on the type of portfolio you have. Income investors may want to dabble in higher yield plays to broaden diversification. Retirement investors may want to avoid these as being too risky. Long-term investors may want to be careful to note if there are specific risks that should encourage them to reject the stock. In some cases, high yield cheap dividend stocks may be good short-term plays because they may be affected by rising interest rates: Resource Capital Corp. (RSO), Deswell Industries (DSWL) and Gladstone Investment Corporation (GAIN).

How Dividend Stocks Fare When Equities Fall

Posted by D4L | Monday, September 29, 2014 | | 0 comments »

Despite enthusiasm for Alibaba and Apple and other prominent names, Wall Street is abuzz with warnings that a bear market is coming. Although the rational approach to such talk is to maintain appropriate asset allocations, many advisors are likely to hear from worried clients. It may be helpful to point out that dividend-paying stocks -- and the mutual funds and ETFs that concentrate on them – have historically continued dividend payments. Indeed, many increased when stock prices have fallen.

Other than in 2008 and 2009, the worst ratios were in 1991 (when the positive/negative ratio was 3.34), 1982 (3.75), 1970 (3.86) and 1958 (2.73). And what were the markets doing as companies cut or omitted dividends in record numbers? The year 1958 was bracketed by a bull market that began in late October 1957 and ran through mid-December 1961. Likewise, 1991 was inside a bull market that ran for almost 150 months, from early December 1987 through late March 2000 -- during which the S&P 500 rose by more than 582%.

I hate it when one of my stock holdings cut its dividends. Tesco (NASDAQ:TESO) did it recently, and I will lose now 75 percent of my income from the stake. For sure, it’s not much because the stock has only a portfolio share of around one percent, but I've bought this share in hopes of getting a stable output or a rising long-term dividend with low taxation.

Recently I wrote about stocks that have lower debt amounts on their balance sheets in an effort to avoid a future dividend cut. Today I will strengthen my criteria and tighten the focus on stocks with no debt and high cash amounts. That's the highest level of safety investors can reach. Below are my favorite stocks with no debt and lots of cash: Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN), Fastenal (NASDAQ:FAST), QUALCOMM (NASDAQ:QCOM), Avago Technologies (NASDAQ:AVGO), Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFM) and Visa (NYSE:V).

3 Frac Sand Dividend Stocks To Buy

Posted by D4L | Sunday, September 28, 2014 | | 0 comments »

As hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling activity have surged, demand for frac sand has skyrocketed as well. During the fracking process, sand and other materials are pushed down into shale and used to help crack open the rock, allowing the hydrocarbons to escape. E&P firms will use an estimated 95 billion pounds of frac sand this year. And that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to its growth potential. According to a new research note by Morgan Stanley, frac sand growth is set to surge by 96% in 2016 — eclipsing supply growth.

Many of these frac sand stocks are structured as master limited partnerships (MLPs), meaning those hefty profits are distributed back to investors as hefty dividends. If you’re looking to add a dose of dividend stocks to your portfolio, the frac sand players have to be on your list. Here are three of the best: Hi-Crush Partners LP (HCLP), Emerge Energy Services LP (EMES) and U.S. Silica Holdings (SLCA).

8 Great Dividend Stocks You Never Heard Of

Posted by D4L | Sunday, September 28, 2014 | | 0 comments »

When you think of mighty dividend payers, some usual suspects may come to mind: Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, McDonald's, to name a few. These companies are considered Dividend Aristocrats, members of Standard & Poor's 500-stock index that have increased their payout every year for at least the past quarter-century. But the list of dividend-raisers goes well beyond household names. In fact, even within the group of Aristocrats, you may not recognize some companies. "A lot of them probably get overlooked because they're just sort of boring," says Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist for S&P Capital IQ's stock research group. Plenty of firms outside the S&P 500 have also regularly increased dividends for a decade or more.

By adding a few of these dividend unknowns to your portfolio, you may get better diversification, in addition to new sources of dividend growth. The following eight stocks boast yields that are close to or greater than the S&P 500's 2.0% yield. Each of the companies has raised its dividend every year for the past 20 years or more. And the outlook for their businesses is bright, helping increase the likelihood that these companies can boost their dividends for years to come. The stocks are listed in alphabetical order: Aqua America (WTR), Becton, Dickinson (BDX), Dover (DOV), Genuine Parts (GPC), Helmerich & Payne (HP), T. Rowe Price (TROW), UGI (UGI) and V.F. Corporation (VFC).
