Weekly Links: November 18, 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 Best Canadian Dividend Growth Stocks
- Disciplined Approach to Investing presented Fiscal Cliff Tax Impact By State
- The Fiscal Cliff and its Impact to your Portfolio

Dividend Stocks Investors Dislike
Investors like George Soros and Warren Buffett. They all have one thing in common: The average return beats the market and if they invest, the market follows.

We then screened for those with bearish sentiment from institutional investors, with significant net institutional sales over the last quarter representing at least 5% of share float. This indicates that institutional investors such as hedge fund managers and mutual fund managers expect these names to underperform in the future. Use this list as a starting point for your own analysis...

Financial Stocks With Top-Notch Yields
Overall, a good number of our banks are from north of the International Boundary. As banking profits have been slumping globally, Canadian banks have been taking advantage of their peers' weaknesses by snatching up other smaller banks and distressed banks. Here are the stocks...

Romney's destiny of quiet retirement with his automobile elevator and his Cayman Islands investments will seem greatly preferable to the struggle that awaits the re-elected President Barack Obama. Internationally, four more years leaves plenty of time for things to go wrong. For investors, the advice is clear. Buy...
