Carnivals, Festivals and Blogs- May 31, 2008

Carnivals and Festivals

My article Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP) Dividend Analysis, was selected to appear on 90th edition of The Festival of Stocks May 26, 2008, hosted by Circle of Competence.

My post on Why Do I Like Dividend Achievers, was selected to appear on the 154th edition of Carnival of Personal Finance #154, hosted by Canadian Dream Free at 45.

My post TEPPCO Partners (TPP) Dividend Analysis. was selected to appear on The 14th Money Hacks Carnival - Weird Golf Facts Edition, hosted by PTMoney.

My post Dividend Champions Watchlist was included in the Carnival of Everything Finance: # 18, hosted by Everything Finance.


FireFinance published his monthly list of the Top 100 Personal Finance Blogs. My blog is ranked #41 according to sitemeter and #50 according to quantcast.

Dividends4Life presented Stock Analysis: PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP). I myself am a fan of the company. You could read about my opinion here and here.

DividendMoney posted How To Develop Your Investing Style.

The Money Gardener presented BNS earnings down, dividend up. It's always nice to find a company which consistently increases its dividends twice per year.

Million Dollar Journey posted updates on his investing in Smith Manoeuvre Portfolio - May 2008.

I also enjoyed the chart in The Dividend Guy’s May Dividend Portfolio Review.

DivGuy is getting pretty good at finding buyout opportunities to invest in. I enjoyed reading his post Another buyout offer on one of my stocks: Calpine (CPN).

Passive Family Income is Creating a new Income Stream using Prosper.


I enjoyed reading America's hottest investor. Being the contrarian that I am, I bet that CGM Focus fund will significantly underperform over the next 5 years.

I also enjoyed reading about The next Buffetts at Canadian Business. In his first book Peter Lynch mentions that whenever someone refers to a stock as the next big thing, then you should stay away from it. In other words, putting money on LNUX, which was touted as the next Microsoft in 1999, would have been a disastrous investment.

Guest Articles

My post Automatic Data Processing (ADP) Dividend analysis marked the 100th post on Dividend Growth Investor. I am very interested in collaborating with fellow personal finance and investment bloggers. To celebrate my centennial, if you are an aspiring writer, and you have an opinion on Personal Finance, Investing, Retirement Planning or a similar money related story, and you want to get more exposure I would love to receive and publish your article on my blog.
Feel free to send the articles to my e-mail address at dividendgrowthinvestor at gmail dot com.

I would be considering only original articles, which haven't been posted anywhere else before. You could place up to 3 links to your blog/website in the article. the material shouldn't be offensive and should be ok to be read by all audiences ( no R rated stuff please).

One week from today, I would let you know if I would be including your article or not. If I publish it, you could also publish it on your blog/website on the same day as me. If its not chosen, you could publish it whenever you wish to.
