Dependable Dividend Stocks that Cramer Likes

Posted by D4L | Thursday, November 08, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Jim Cramer discusses a lot of companies on his nightly show on CNBC, Mad Money. Since my recent focus has been on good dividend-yielding companies, I decided to review some of his picks to see if they would fit into my dividend-growth portfolio. For my own criteria, in addition to a good yield, I look to the number of years that the company has been paying and raising dividends, its 5-year average Dividend Growth Rate (DGR) and the total return over the past twelve months.

Of the hundred plus companies that Jim has recommended in the last month, I've found only 4 companies that fit my criteria. They are dependable and stable, performing well, and have impressive DGRs. I suggest you take a look for your own dividend portfolio: Kinder Morgan Partners (KMP), AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) and Enterprise Products Partners (EPD). I truly believe that you can't go wrong with excellent companies like these. Even in the face of fiscal uncertainty, these dependable companies have proven themselves over and over, providing a steady and completely reliable stream of income in addition to their capital increases.
