Appealing And Safe Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 01, 2012 | | 0 comments »

When trying to pick the best dividend stocks, investors should focus on the stocks' annualized dividend yields, sustainability of the yields, the financial capacity to grow dividends in the future, and the management's commitment to sustain and grow dividends. Several indicators will be particularly important, including the ratio of dividend payouts to earnings and free cash flow, the past and projected growth in earnings per share (EPS), the extent of the company's leverage (debt-to-equity ratio), and the free cash flow yield.

Based on these selection criteria, here we take a closer look at five such stocks: Accenture (ACN), Xilinx Inc. (XLNX), Aflac Inc. (AFL), CA Technologies (CA) and Parker Hannifin Corporation (PH).
