Dividends4Life: Be Wary Of Stocks With Weak Dividend Growth

Be Wary Of Stocks With Weak Dividend Growth

Posted by D4L | Sunday, August 11, 2013 | | 0 comments »

When it comes to how I construct my portfolio, I seek companies that increase their dividends over time. As a dividend growth investor, I want to avoid companies that are not growing dividends at a rate above inflation. I also want to avoid those that are slowing down dividend growth. Let's look at some companies that I would be cautious investing in long term.

Remember - it is OK to have a stagnant dividend if you are only concerned with income. I simply require dividend growth, as I look to invest for the long term. Is it time to hang up on AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T)? AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) has some challenges to overcome in the short to medium term. Tootsie Roll Industries (NYSE:TR) isn't very sweet. Tootsie Roll Industries (NYSE:TR) Industries is what you would call "stagnant." Is it time to take out the trash? Waste Management, Inc. (NYSE:WM) is an American company that serves North America through the disposal and recycling of waste material.
