Weekly Links: July 21, 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:

Dividend Stocks Your Kids Will Love
If you want to teach your children the power of making their money work for them (instead of the other way around), what better way to do so than by introducing them to a few solid, big-name dividend stocks? After all, billionaire investor Warren Buffett bought his first stock at 11 years old, and he's built his fortune riding the success of some of most famous dividend stocks in history. Of course, Buffett's father was also a stockbroker at the time, but it still highlights what can be accomplished when we start early teaching our kids the potential held in the greatest wealth-building medium in existence. To get you started, here are three such dividend stocks...

Favorite Stocks with Recent Dividend Growth
Stocks with dividend hikes from last week originally published at “”. The summer season is going to reach its high and the list of dividend growers shrinks to new lows. Last week, only 9 companies and three funds announced a dividend hike. Only four of them have a current buy or better rating. The average dividend growth of the top dividend growers from last week amounts to 13.29 percent. Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks...

Highly Profitable, 5% Yielding Dividend Stocks
Investing for income is becoming a scary proposition. As stock prices rise and, consequently, yields fall, finding substantial income in today’s market is a tough job. Despite the recent spike in interest rates, rates remain punishingly low for those with savings who want to earn income from their investments. As a result, investors may be tempted to chase yield from speculative stocks or sectors of the market that are obscure and fraught with risk. Never fear, investors: there are still highly profitable stocks from easily understood industries that pay you 5% or more to own them. Look here for hefty yields...

In my strategy, I don't just go for stocks with great yields, I go for stocks with okay yields but that can provide capital appreciation in terms of earnings growth. The thing I've noticed about the thirty that I monitor is that the top four gainers on the year are mid-cap companies...

Most Acquired Dividend Stocks
100 most bought stocks by investment professionals originally published on Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Super investors are such with billions in assets under management. If they jump on a stock, it’s possible that something changes with the company or even the stock price. Mostly it’s a good sign when a big investor expresses his trust to the company. The media notices the stock buy and other investors will follow. Today I like to produce a little screen of the biggest stock buys from 49 super investors. I analyzed how often a stock were bought over the recent six months and ranked them in my 100 best guru buy list. All super gurus combined bought 647 stocks within the recent half year. The number one stock above all guru stock buys was...
