Carnivals and Festivals
My Dividend Analysis of McGraw-Hill (MHP) was selected to be part of the 83rd Edition of the Festival of Stocks hosted by George at Fat Pitch Financials.
My article Back test Results of one Rule of Thumb was featured on the Carnival of Twenty Something Finances - April 7th Edition hosted by The BagLady.
My Clorox (CLX) Dividend Analysis was selected to be part of the 7th Edition of the Money Hacks Carnival at Mommygetspaid.
My article one rule of thumb was featured on the Carnival of Personal Finance #147: Q1 Financial Advice Edition hosted by MoneyNing.
I found out several interesting articles on other blogs on the internet
The Money Gardener was excited about the 14% increase in the annual dividend at PG. PG has raised their dividend for 52 straight years. You could read my analysis of PG here.
Dividends4life analyzed CLX. He thinks that “A stable demand for household and personal care products, which is generally not affected by changes in the economy or by geopolitical factors, is a positive for CLX.” Unlike D4L I own CLX. You could read my analysis here.
DivGuy presented his “Zecco Trading Free Brokerage Account: 1 Year Review” at his blog. Overall he has been very pleased with my Zecco account and would recommend Zecco to anyone who wants to save money on stock trades.
The Dividend Guy presented his analysis of High Dividend Payout Ratio = High Earnings Growth Rate. I would have never expected that a high dividend payout signals higher than average future growth in earnings.
Last but not least I enjoyed Tyler’s article Dividend Growth Fund Stratgies Revealed posted on his blog DividendMoney.
