Weekly Links: June 16, 2013

Each Sunday I highlight the Carnivals I participated in over the past week, along with any notable articles that I came across.

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:

Warnings From Crumbling Dividend Stocks
In some ways, a basic look at a company's business model can indicate that a meaningful dividend growth record should prove unsustainable over the long term. Often enough, a company's dividend will cough and wheeze for an extended period of time before the company itself crumbles. A dividend freeze or cut is one of the best "canaries in the coalmine" that can indicate trouble for long-term investors in a particular company. But in the case of companies that...

Next, we screened our low price universe for undervaluations. Specifically, we looked for low price to sales ratios and price movements that lag EPS trends.

Underpriced Rapid-Growth Dividend Stocks

All five of the underpriced stocks below trade with price to earnings ratios of less than 15.5x, which is well below the market's near 20x P/E...

Now is the Time for Fortune-Building With Dividend Stocks
A lady named Grace Groner. Grace worked as a secretary at Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT) for 43 years. She bought three shares of Abbott labs for $180 in 1935. When she died in 2010, these shares were worth $7 million — and generated $250,000 in income a year.
