Best Dividend Investing Articles For June

For your reading enjoyment, I have highlighted several articles that the readers found of particular interest this month. I have included the article title, as well as a short description.

Four Cheap Consumer Staples For Dividend Investors
The consumer staples sector has been hated by investors over the past year or two. There are several headwinds that appear to have depressed the share prices for many quality consumer staples with reliable dividend payments. Some of these headwinds include slowing growth, threats of product obsolescence, rising interest rate and a general decrease in investor demand for these securities. After performing some reviews, I came up with a list of companies in the consumer staples sector, which are attractively priced today. I believe that each one of these companies has sustainable dividends. Each one of those companies is also growing earnings per share, which will be helpful for future dividend growth and to increase the intrinsic value of our share investments over time. All of those companies are priced below 20 times forward earnings.

Historical Performance Of The Dividend Kings List
The dividend kings list includes the most elite dividend growth companies in the US. A dividend king is a company that has managed to increase its dividends to shareholders for at least 50 years in a row.

This is a testament to the endurance and resilience of those businesses over the past 50 years. This great track record make each dividend king an excellent case study on what makes for a successful and lasting investment. For the purposes of this article, I calculated to total returns performance per year for each group of dividend kings. I assumed that portfolios were equally weighted in a tax-deferred account that qualified for commission free trades. The results were very interesting. But I like crunching data.

Dividend Investing Resources I Use
I am frequently asked by readers about resources I use. While I have discussed before the resources I use to monitor my holdings, and I have compiled before information on resources before, those lists are forever changing. As I have done this for over a decade, I continuously add, test and remove tools from my list. However, I also have to keep in mind the fact that this site is read by investors with varying levels of experience. Therefore, I decided to list a few free resources that may be helpful for any dividend investor out there.

Five Consumer Staples to Consider On Dips
I shared a list of five consumer staples with good track records of dividend growth and solid earnings growth. Unfortunately, these shares were either overvalued or close to the top of the valuation range. In general, I prefer to buy shares at a P/E ratio below 20. However, the lower the entry price, the better my chances of earning good returns and locking in a higher yield from the start.
