Weekly Links: June 10, 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):

- Dividend Growth Investor presented The Most Successful Dividend Investors of all time

A New Way To Look At Dividend Stocks And Bonds
Blue-chip dividend-paying U.S. equities represent not only a viable, but also a safer investment choice than many give them credit for. I also pointed out why I believe the risk profile on bonds is currently upside down, arguing that for one of the few times in history they may actually be more dangerous an investment than equities.

First, the stock should have a consecutive dividend growth of at least 25 years (Dividend Champions). Second...

Dividend Stocks Are Attractive on this Pullback
The stock market has been due for a correction according to Mitchell Clark, contributor to popular financial e-newsletter Profit Confidential. Clark believes that a correction is well-deserved and says he would be accumulating dividend paying stocks on this pullback. “If I were an equity investor looking for new positions this year, I’d wait until the correction plays itself out and I’d be watching my favorite dividend paying stocks for a good entry point,” says Clark. Clark believes the stock market will...

I've Put My Money On This Dividend Stock
Last summer, I pledged to put at least $4,000 of my own money behind 10 stocks. My goal was to build the World's Greatest Retirement Portfolio. So far, the results have been outstanding. The $40,000 invested has returned $8,440 -- while an investment in the S&P 500 would have returned only $1,080 -- an outperformance of more than 18 percentage points! Today, I'm going to tell you why...

There are several ways for investors to find rewarding and reasonably priced stocks in this nervous market. Initial public offerings of stocks aren’t usually the way to do it as they largely benefit the big guys with Wall Street connections. On the other hand, diligent research usually produces valuable long-term opportunities, rather than instant-but-fleeting hits. The evolving Facebook (FB) story shows how IPOs can be risky plays for the uninitiated. Nothing works like good fundamentals in picking stocks. And investors who pay close attention to them often reap bountiful rewards. The four other value plays that are...
