Weekly Links: September 15, 2013

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

- The Dividend Guy presented A Quest for Income at Retirement – Can you Make it Alive?
- Dividend Growth Investor presented Should dividend investors hold non-dividend paying stocks?
- Hello Suckers presented Realty Income declares its 73rd dividend increase, so why the stock fell?

Dividend Stocks Buffett And Lynch Would Love
Buffett, for example, has targeted companies that have averaged an ROE of at least 15% over the past decade. And he and a number of investment greats, including Peter Lynch, John Neff, and James O’Shaughnessy, have incorporated dividend yield into their strategies in various ways. I found that right now such companies are few and far between. Interestingly, many that did make the grade are based overseas. Here’s a sampling...

Strong Portfolio Growth With Dividend Investing
Given dividend growth investing has a reputation for being the strategy of choice for older investors and retirees, it sometimes suffers from certain misconceptions. There is occasionally a perception that dividend investing is not a growth oriented strategy and offers little opportunity to get strongly rising dividend income or generate significant capital growth. In my opinion, these views are incorrect. While dividend stocks are well known for their consistent steady income potential, the fact is that there are dividend paying companies with exposure to faster growing sectors that are experiencing rapid dividend income growth as well as strong capital growth. Dividend paying companies can and do provide...

Dividend Stocks Boasting High Free Cash Flow Yields
A positive FCF yield means the company earns more cash than is needed for operations, which then can be used to fund growth, innovate, decrease debt, pay and grow dividends, or fund share buybacks. While past performance may not necessarily replicate in the future, a few growth stocks with dividend yields exceeding 2% currently appear undervalued by their FCF. Here is a closer look at three dividend stocks with FCF yields at or above 6.7% and showing sign of future growth...

This Microcap Paying an 8% Dividend
I enjoy studying companies in the microcap arena. They usually are overlooked stocks that often harbor a great idea that, if properly executed, can grow into a huge success over the years. As long as the company isn’t 1) technology-related, 2) biotech/pharma-related or 3) an obvious penny stock piece of junk, I give these little guys a lot of time. It takes patience to buy a microcap and wait for it to really give you big returns, but they also are the breeding grounds for the elusive ten-bagger. In the case of...

Widely Held Dividend Stocks Pulling up Lame
Many stocks are covered on a frequent basis just because “everyone” holds them. Walmart (WMT), McDonald’s (MCD), General Electric (GE) and the like — many people own them, and thus many people want more news on them. Which brings me to a list provided by ETF Channel: 25 Dividend Giants Widely Held by ETFs. Its a nifty list that provides exactly what’s advertised: 25 income stocks that are widely held in ETFs. You’d have a hard time coming up with a lot of major beefs with many of these companies...
