Weekly Links: August 4, 2013

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.

Articles I enjoyed reading included (in no particular order):

- Dividend Growth Investor presented Looking for dividend bargains in an overheated market

Dividend Stocks Will Surge If Growth Continues
The argument that defensive dividend-paying stocks are now overvalued is extremely short-sighted, according to Ben Lofthouse and Andrew Jones, who say those prices could continue to rise if there is a sustained period of economic growth. The price of dividend-paying stocks has spiked as investors look for bond proxies, given the low-yielding fixed income market. As a result, a number of fund managers have claimed that...

Billionaire David Harding’s Cheap Picks
Value investors often begin their search for attractive stocks by looking for those which are “cheap” in terms of having low price-to-earnings multiples. We at Insider Monkey maintain a database of quarterly 13F filings from hundreds of hedge funds as part of our work developing investment strategies and can also screen picks from individual managers in search of potential value opportunities that investors might want to research further.

The fund increased the size of its position in...

The Most Generous Dividend-Payers In The Market
Dividend stocks have gotten incredibly popular among investors as the search for income has led many to take on more risk in their portfolios in order to generate the cash flow they need from their investments. With the S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC ) once again at new highs, another draw of dividend stocks is that historically, they've tended to perform better than the overall market during pullbacks, making more conservative investors feel more comfortable with dividend payers. But some companies are more generous with dividends than others. Let's take a look at the 15 blue-chip companies that...

Favorite Stocks with Big Dividend Growth
The number of dividend hikers remains low. Only 10 stocks and two additional funds announced to increase their dividend payments last week. On the list are some well-known big players like Conoco Philips, Walgreen, Paychex or Cummins. It’s always good to see that some stocks keep their dividend growth path. Seven of the results have a current buy or better rating. Here are my favorite dividend growth stocks...

Deutsche Bank's List of Sustainable Dividend Stocks
In an effort to find the top dividend stocks for our readers, we were intrigued by a Deutsche Bank A.G. (NYSE: DB) research piece that detailed its use of a screening method for dividend stocks known as CROCI, or cash return on invested capital. The computers screen stocks for real economic cash return on the company’s adjusted asset base, calculated as an internal rate of return over the company’s estimated asset life. This in turn helps to determine which stocks make its Sustainable Dividend Screen. We then screened the list by sector, looking for the stocks with the highest return on equity (ROE). Here is the list of stocks to buy from Deutsche Bank...
