Your Five-Card-Stud Dividend Portfolio

Posted by D4L | Thursday, September 18, 2014 | | 0 comments »

Let's build a diversified yield portfolio. I would start with Verizon (VZ_) . Why? Because it just boosted its dividend today, from $0.53 to $0.55, which gives you a terrific 4.3% yield. That's much better than Treasuries, even before you factor in the favorable tax treatment. We like companies that have enough growth that they can increase their dividends, and Verizon's amazing wireless division will give us that.

Next up? Last night we heard from Royal Dutch Shell's (RDS.A_) , (RDS.B_) CEO, Ben van Beurden. I hope you were as impressed with him as I was. He's giving you a 4.7% yield and a dividend boost is in the cards, as he follows through with his disciplined plan to invest with better returns and knock out profligate spending, which he will detail in tomorrow's analyst meeting. I know oil's been headed down, but not so much that it hurt that dividend growth.
