Weekly Links: December 4, 2011

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:

The goods on dividend investing
Some investors in equities haven't fared badly because they have marched to a different mantra. This strategy, too, can be summed up in a simple catch phrase, yet it's also usually much less difficult to execute. So what's the secret? Invest in stocks that pay you to hold them.

This conservative approach helps eliminate the temptation to trade on the news and prevents us from developing tunnel vision on the daily headlines. We have been looking to initiate a position in...

Key to Smart Dividend Investing
Ask most income-seeking investors what they like best about dividend stocks, and they'll tell you the obvious answer: their current yield. But if you want to be a smarter long-term dividend investor, you have to go beyond current yields to learn the secret of dividend longevity -- in order to make sure those payouts will keep coming year after year, decade after decade.

Many telecoms that provide service overseas have been caught up in the euro zone debacle and other local issues that have sent their shares sharply downward, offsetting any income potential. I screened foreign telecom services stocks with a dividend yield of more than 5 percent that were oversold by investors.
