Weekly Links: November 4, 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):

Dirt Cheap Dividend Stocks
We have identified five materials stocks that pay high dividends in an industry that we believe can excel going forward. The materials industry has been beaten down by an overall weak global economy.

Picking individual stocks to capture capital return is a dangerous strategy, especially for those without the knowledge or experience to manage risk. A better strategy...

French Dividend Stocks
With ECB President Mario Draghi and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke in a monetary arms race to see who can inject more liquidity into the global financial system, global equity markets should enjoy a spectacular finish to the year. And with Bernanke determined to keep short-term rates at near 0% through 2015, dividend-paying stocks should continue to be attractive to income investors for years to come.

Especially in times of crises like the European debt crisis and the slowing China GDP growth, a safe haven strategy should be a wise decision. Here are my favorite stocks...
