High-Yield Income Stocks Worth Every Penny
Investors are still having a hard time finding great income stocks. And with the Fed holding yields low for the foreseeable future, this is not going to change anytime soon. It also doesn’t help that the search for yield over the past few years has pushed the price of many traditional income stocks to levels that are not justified by the underlying fundamentals of the companies. Buying a higher-yielding stock will not be a very satisfactory experience if the stock drops by four or five times the amount paid out in dividends. Investors, even those in search of income stocks, need to use Portfolio Grader to select the very best stocks with excellent fundamentals...

The Single Best Way To Beat The Market With Dividend Stocks
Dividend investing is changing. Over the past decade, many dividend-paying companies have slowly trended away from paying traditional dividends.

It has also been stated that receiving a dividend is the same as reducing your investment in the stock that sent it. Both notions are simplistic and false. They are not true in theory, let alone actual life. I would like to prove what I just said. The retiree cannot simply presume that...

Best Dividend Stocks for 2014 … and 2024 … and Beyond
The best dividend stocks are not just the ones that offer big payments right now. After all, big dividends are nice … but pretty meaningless if your high dividend stocks also give you very low share performance. So when looking for the best dividend stocks, investors need to focus on both the current dividend opportunities and the prospect of big payments down the road, too. And to me, there’s no better investment for income...
