Weekly Links: September 1, 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 The importance of pricing and valuation in dividend investing
- Dividend Growth Stocks Investing presented An Investment in Chevron
- Dividend Mantra presented Interview With Derek Foster, The "Idiot Millionaire"

Cheap High Beta Industrial Dividend Stocks
I’ve created an article serial about high beta stocks. Those stocks are more closely correlated than the overall market and tend to outperform the broad S&P 500 in bullish times. They also tend to lose performance when the markets are going down. Today I would like to screen high beta dividend stocks from the industrial sector with a cheap forward P/E ratio. Only 15 stocks from the sector fulfilled these criteria and 11 of them are currently recommended to buy. Here are the highest yielding results...

Thirsty For Income? Try One Of These 4 Beverage Stocks
Investors looking for stability would be smart to snatch up some high-income names on the cheap in the event of a downturn. While you can find dividend stocks in all corners of the market, one great place to look is in the world of beverage stocks.

At the same time, several big-name beverage companies also offer solid payouts for dividend-thirsty investors. Let’s take a look at four of them, from lowest yield to highest...

Stocks That Doubled Their Dividends in the Past Year
Dividend investors would be wise to focus not just on a stock's current yield, but also on the long-term growth potential of its dividends. That's because strong businesses that consistently raise their dividend payouts reward shareholders with a steadily rising income stream that essentially equates to a raise every year. And well, who doesn't like a raise? With that in mind, here are five stocks that have grown their dividends by 100% or more over the past year...

Soaring Stocks With Yields Over 5%
A handful of dividend stocks have put on a stellar performance so far this year but still offer eye-popping yields.

With yields north of 5% right now, you can afford for these dividend stocks to tread a little water until the needle heads back north. Let’s take a look at big-time gainers offering big-time dividends...

The Power of Dividend Stocks
Stocks that pay cash dividends are in essence sharing their profits with investors who have equity ownership in a particular company. Dividends are a reward, as in the statement “our efforts finally paid dividends.” Historically, dividends have been an excellent way to create wealth. Going back to 1960, 79.5% of the total return of the S&P 500 index is attributed to reinvested dividends and the power of compounding.
