Weekly Links: December 23, 2012

Each Sunday I highlight the Carnivals I participated in over the past week, along with any notable articles that I came across. For those readers not familiar with carnivals, it's where personal finance bloggers submit their best articles of the week with one blog serving as the host. The entries are separated into various categories such as Investing, Credit, Debt, Budgeting, Frugality, Wealth Building, Money Management, Financial Planning, Insurance, Taxes, The Economy, Real Estate, et. al. Below are the carnivals that I participated in this week, along with a link to my article:

Articles I enjoyed reading included (in no particular order):

- The Dividend Guy presented Emera EMA Dividend Stock Analysis
- Disciplined Approach to Investing presented Fiscal Cliff Not Resulting In Dividend Cliff
- Dividend Growth Investor presented Dividend Stocks I Purchased Over the Past Two Months

Those who fear that dividend stocks will collapse due to the scheduled increase of dividend taxes to the ordinary rate are most likely wrong, because...

Dividend Income Versus Dividend Growth
