AT&T Heads A List Of 3 Value Dividend Stocks To Buy

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, February 26, 2014 | | 0 comments »

Call me a pessimistic optimist, but for now I will continue the course and purchase value stocks for my dividend portfolio. Value investing is the bread and butter of Warren Buffett's money-making strategy. The essence of value investing is basically purchasing a stock at less than market value based on certain metrics. My philosophy on dividend investing is to utilize the forward price to earnings ratio and use a one-year PEG ratio, along with a dividend. I don't necessarily look for a stock with a high yield because I like to see capital appreciation. Because the market may be correcting itself from all-time highs I maintain that it is difficult to find good stocks these days. That's why I'm highlighting a select set of excellent value companies in my dividend portfolio, which have had ex-dividend dates or paid out a dividend during this past week or early next week that people should place on their radar:

AT&T Inc. (T) is a provider of telecommunications services in the U.S. and worldwide. Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) is a bank holding company which operates in three segments: Community Banking, Wholesale Banking and Wealth, Brokerage and Retirement. Consolidated Edison, Inc. (ED) is a holding company that owns Consolidated Edison Company of New York and Orange & Rockland Utilities. I've highlighted these names because they have all raised their dividend or initiated them within the past year and are poised to do so again in the coming years. It is important in this market to be able to hold onto companies which raise their dividend rates or initiated them, because it is a sign that the underlying company is doing well financially. The importance of these stocks I've highlighted is that they are value plays while the broader market may be correcting itself.
