20 Of The Safest Dividend Champions

20 Of The Safest Dividend Champions originally appeard on long-term-investments. More and more people talk about an overvaluation of the market. Sure P/E ratios skyrocket within the past five years but earnings did also improve.

You might agree with me that the risk of a market correction is improving with rising stock prices. What investors like you and me need to do is to hedge their risks.

I personally look for low beta stocks. Those have a lower correlation to the overall market and should fall less. Below are 20 of the safest Dividend Champions by beta ratio.

I've created a detailed snapshot of my 4 favorites and attached the full list. Let's go forward...


Money Raiser Of The Week: 7 Top Stocks With Fresh Dividend Growth Or Share Buybacks

Dividend growth and share buybacks are two main activities to increase the potential shareholder value and give money back to their owners. 

I like those transactions because it's a clear signal to investors which get rewarded by taking risk and borrowing money.

There is no free lunch and you might agree with me that each good managed company should raise dividends in order to satisfy investors. 

For sure some companies have no possibility to give money back to the financial market because of slipping sales and margin pressure. My answer: Those stocks are not in focus of my research!

Today I like to highlight stocks that gave investors more money via dividend growth or share buybacks within the recent week. These are some of the biggest companies:


26.25% Annual Return With Lobbying Stocks? Here is how it works...

I found an interesting portfolio investing idea: Invest into stocks that spend a huge amount of money to support political campaigns’. 

It's no wonder that corporations have a huge interest in spending money for politics: Each dollar should create a return of 220 bucks in the future. That's a pretty good investment in my view.

I'm no social guy and have no thoughts in my mind how governments work but stocks that have spend huge amounts for lobbying as a percent of total assets, have performed very well in the past. 

Stocks that lobby Washington beat the street by shocking 11 percent yearly!

Since 2009 a compilation of lobbing stocks generated an annual return of 26.25 percent while the Sharpe Ratio of the combined portfolio reached a high value of 0.88.

Look at my attached stock list. Hope you get some new ideas. I still introduce many investing ideas and dividend growing stocks on my blog. 

Here are the top stocks that spend a large amount on lobbying as a percent of total assets:


Warren Buffett Buys Surprisingly These 8 Dividend Stocks

Warren Buffett released recently his Portfolio movements via 13F. 

I cover his investment changes and like to share my thoughts about his latest moves with you here on my blog. 

Sure, I like to keep my focus on dividend stocks but you will also get his non-dividend payer stock buys and sells.

General Motors and Suncor Energy are his highest yielding stock purchases from the past quarter. Completely new shares in his asset vehicle were Express Scripts Holdings, the health care plans operator.

In addition he added Visa and MasterCard. The trend of paying cash-less is fully intact and gains more and more momentum.

Also Wal-Mart and IBM shares were increased by Buffett. Below is a full list of his latest stock movements.

5 Best Dividend Growth And Buyback Stocks Of The Week

One of my main thought related to investments is "how fast can the company pay my money back".

It's one of the basic principals in investing. Put your money into stocks that drive you cash back in a very short period of time. The smaller the pace, the bigger your return will be.

Warren Buffett bought BNSF Railway in November 3, 2009 for around USD 44 billion. It sounds like a huge amount of money but the railroad company who travelled 169 million miles in 2010 paid warren since his acquisition around $15 billion in dividends. Not bad for an old-school business.

Below I've compiled like each week stocks that have raised dividends during the past week. In addition, you can also find a list of those stocks which have released a share buyback program.

Receiving money, direct or indirect should help passive investors like me to hedge a minimum amount of return.
