Some Dividend Investment Opportunities

(I originally posted the following article on The-DIV-Net website on September 7, 2008)

The September issue of Argus Research's Argus Update newsletter provides a list of stocks the firm titles as Dialing for Dividends. The screen is based on the following criteria:

  • A market value of at least $1 billion
  • A dividend yield of at least 3%, but less than 6%
  • A dividend payout ratio of less than 50%
  • Dividend growth of at least 8% per year over five years
  • A forward P/E of less than 15

As is always the case, the list is only a starting point for investors. If any of the stocks on the list are being considered for inclusion in ones portfolio, additional research should be performed.
